Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic has given the Ghosts supporters thumbs up ahead of his first Carling Black Label Cup experience against arch-rivals Kaizer Chiefs at Soccer City this Saturday.

Sredojevic, together with some of his technical staff who arrived at the club last season, says they are looking forward to the clash.

The Serbia master technician also says they respect and welcome the fans selection despite noticing possible imbalances with the team chosen to run out on the day.

Pirates recently returned just in time for the build-up of the returning Carling Cup following an intensive pre-season with three camps. Sredojevic says the coaching staff is confident.

Having brought in players such as Gabadinho Mhango, Joris Delle, Kabelo Dlamini, Bongani Sam, Fortune Makaringe, Siphesihle Ndlovu, Tebogo Tlolane and Tshegofatso Mabasa, Sredojevic says they have completed their puzzle now.
