Furman Not Surprised By Pirates Demolition: We Did It Before

Dean Furman Says He Wasn't Surprised By SuperSport's 4-1 Win v Pirates

By Joe Crann - Jun 27, 2017 09:32 AM @YesWeCrann
Dean Furman says that he wasn’t surprised by SuperSport United’s demolition of Orlando Pirates, especially given their previous 2016 victory over the Buccaneers.
 
 
SuperSport scored 12 goals against Pirates this season in four games, hitting seven in the Absa Premiership, one in the Telkom Knockout and four in this weekend’s 4-1 Nedbank Cup final win.
 
The Matsatsantsa captain became the first person to lift the trophy two years in a row, putting in another fine performance as SuperSport came out on top in Durban thanks to a brace from Bradley Grobler and goals from Jeremy Brockie and Kingston Nkhatha.
 
Speaking after the win, Furman says that they know their strength and knew they could ‘exploit’ Kjell Jonevret’s side.
 
He told the Siya crew, “We’ve done it before against Pirates, so it wasn’t necessarily a surprise for us. We know that, once everything clicks in our game with our shape and structure, we’re an incredibly dangerous team and we’ve scored four or more on many occasions this season. So we know that if we get it right then we can exploit the opposition’s weakness and that’s what we did.”
 
They had a scare at 1-0 when Brockie missed a penalty, although they rode out the storm and Furman said, “We talk about critical phases a lot, and the coach said the whole second half would be a critical phase. For five minutes after the penalty miss, the crowd went wild and it lifted them a bit. We just had to manage those moments and calm everything down.
 
“Credit to him, five minutes later he put one in the back of the net and we went from strength to strength from there.”
 
Meanwhile, on the topic of missing out on the Absa Premiership trophy once again and the arrival of Eric Tinkler for the 2017/18 season, ‘Furms’ says that they’ve got high hopes for the new campaign. 
 
 
He admitted I’m hoping for more. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t bitterly disappointed about how we fell away in the league. We were at the top and fell short in the end, and that’s hard to take.
 
“This Nedbank win will be with me for the rest of my life, never mind my career, but the league is the one we want to go for. We feel like we’ve got the squad and players who have been there and done it.
 
“Next year we want to go all the way, and we’ve got a coach coming in with new ideas that we’re excited to take on board. We’re ready to get stuck in with Eric as soon as possible and certainly the league title is the one we’re all wanting.”
 
There will be no break for the SuperSport players, with the club now beginning preparations for the trip to Horoya next weekend.

@indidane And those are no finished products yet except Mobara if u play him at RB. Pitso was going to mould them and they would be stars .
