Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojević was left impressed with an FC Platinum’s performance following a goalless draw on Saturday.
Pirates were favourites to win the Champions League Group B match but the Norman Mapeza-coached side put on a great team work as the encounter ended in a stalemate.
According to NewsDay, Sredojević said: “This is a strong team that has impressed me as a coach. They have good individual players and a very good coach as well.
“And considering that they are coming from a good footballing nation, I wish them all the best and I hope they will reach all their goals.”
The Zimbabwe champions will now face title holders Esperance in Tunisia on Friday. They are set to fly out to North Africa on Tuesday evening.
