Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic has revealed that his team watched the Black Panther movie before playing the Soweto derby match against Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

Sredojevic says the team went to the cinema to watch the movie as a team building exercise.

“It has been a dream finish of a week where we have really taken care of all the details‚” Sredojevic told the media after his team beat Chiefs 3-1 on Saturday.

“I want to give credit. I stand here in front of you‚ but I want you to really see my brother Rhulani (Mokwena‚ Pirates assistant coach)‚ and the other members of the technical team‚ together with all the players.

“We have worked very hard throughout the week.

“On Tuesday we went for a team-building aspect‚ and we went to watch the film Black Panther,” added Sredojevic.

“It is a film where we as a sports brand feel represented in that historical African theme. And it has been a special injection of motivation for us to go and prove the point today (Saturday).

“We had three quality training sessions where we pulled all the things together on and off the field.

“We have really worked very hard,” concluded the Pirates coach.
