“We as Bidvest [ Wits] players, it seems as if we’ve won enough. We’ve won the league so we should be more hungry, but we’re not that hungry and not that passionate anymore. I’m just disappointed about us as players, the way we go about our games. Even when we’re 1-0 down, the fight to get back [isn’t there]. Now it seems we’ve reached that goal and we’ve had enough, and that’s the heart-breaking part.”

“Football is a game of chess. When you study the opposition, you know how to avoid dangers, hitting them on the counterattack. Wits are one of the best sides in the league when it comes to set pieces, but I found out they’re also vulnerable on counter-attacks. Three games three wins, I know I’m far from a thousand games as a manager, but I’m not doing too bad hey?”
