How Micho’s men ghosted to victory
This was one of the most anticipated Soweto derbies in recent years, with the comments from Orlando Pirates assistant coach, Rhulani Mokwena, causing a real stir last week but also reigniting an all-too-friendly rivalry between the clubs. His assertion that Kaizer Chiefs lack the tactical acumen and organisation that they had under Steve Komphela and his quote that “you can clearly see the lack of a coach of that calibre” were contro- versial comments about Giovanni Solinas, and he followed that up with a scathing criticism of Leonardo Castro. However, for all the words before the game, all of the real talking would have to be done on the pitch. Soccer
