Orlando Pirates head coach Rhulani Mokwena has firmly stated that he 'will never throw his players' under the bus and will continue to take full responsibility to help them rectify their wrongs.
Pirates registered a total of 28 shots at goal against Stellenbosch FC but only 1 of which resulted in a goal but Mokwena remained coy over the finishing problem firmly saying he won't be calling his players out in public for their mistakes.
“I’ll never throw my players under the bus,” said Mokwena.
“I’m proud of the Pirates players. They are honest, they do their best that they can in every game. We will go back and practice more to improve the team and that’s what we always focus on. I don’t’ know any other solution except for hard work.
“I hope the problem of conceding is over but in football, there are no certain guarantees. What I do know, though, is that if we continue to defend the way we did against Stellenbosch then we are headed in the right direction.”
