“I t’s a tough one for Jack­son. The sit­u­a­tion he finds hi mself in is a goal­keeper chal­lenge, not just an iso­lated in cident. This is not his first time go­ing through this thhough – he has been there be­fore, and he knows that hee has to go through this be­fore he bounces back again. Ass a goal­keeper coach, when you have four ex­pe­ri­enced gooal­keep­ers like Pi­rates does, you have to man­age thheir heads as well. Mamelodi Sundowns is in the saame sit­u­a­tion be­cause they have three in­ter­na­tional goal­keep­ers­goal­keep­ers. You have to make them be­lieve and these are things that we al­ways went through as play­ers. I re­mem­ber when Rowen Fer­nan­dez joined as the num­ber one goal­keeper from Wits, it was the hard­est mo­ment. Be­ing num­ber two to Brian Baloyi, it was un­fore­see­able when was he go­ing to get his chance, but these are things you have to work with.”
