What they are saying …

Posted: 26 August 2009 Time: 06:30

Coaches and players are having their say ahead of tonight’s full round of Premiership games, with Pirates coach Ruud Krol happy to be back on the field, Vlad Vermezovic remaining positive and Muhsin Ertugral anticipating some fireworks in the Cape.

GOLDEN ARROWS vs PLATINUM STARS Manqoba Mngqithi (Golden Arrows coach) “It’s going to be a tough game; Steve [Komphela] is a clever coach. He might come for a draw and that could make the game very tight. I foresee him defending deep; I don’t see him going all-out.”   David Vilakazi (Platinum Stars assistant coach) “They have good quality all over the pitch and this will be another extremely difficult game for us. But after the AmaZulu defeat last week, we need to start collecting points … we cannot afford to lose another match.”   KAIZER CHIEFS vs BIDVEST WITS Vladimir Vermezovic (Kaizer Chiefs coach) “We made mistakes against Ajax, but there were a lot of good things I saw. We scored three good goals and showed tremendous fighting spirit and I am happy with that. I am a positive person and am confident we will do well against Wits.”   Roger de Sa (Bidvest Wits coach) “We have to improve. Playing at Orlando Stadium will provide a tremendous atmosphere for my players and we are looking forward to the game.”   JOMO COSMOS vs BLACK ACES Jomo Sono (Jomo Cosmos coach) “Aces run a lot and we expect them to have five at the back. We will have to try and go down the flanks, but luckily we have some quick players. I’m happy with the way we’ve been playing; we’ve played some good football.”   Jonas Mabusela (Black Aces assistant coach) “This is going to be our toughest contest to date. Cosmos are physically tough opposition and we know them very well from our days in the First Division.”   MARITZBURG UNITED vs AMAZULU Gordon Igesund (Maritzburg United coach) “AmaZulu are a very good side and we won’t be reading too much into their loss to Golden Arrows at the weekend. We have made a very good start to the season; The guys are really fired up and I believe we will get a good result.”   Neil Tovey (AmaZulu coach) “We didn’t defend well enough [against Arrows]; it wasn’t a good defensive display over the two legs. Once again I had to come into the changeroom at half-time and scream at the players. We must learn to defend first and then build our game from there.”   MOROKA SWALLOWS vs ORLANDO PIRATES Zeca Marques (Moroka Swallows assistant coach) “The players need to change their mindset. They need to start thinking about winning matches when they wake up and not when they get onto the pitch. This was not the sort of start that our new coach Rainer Zobel wanted.”   Ruud Krol (Orlando Pirates coach) “It is nice to play again. Players always want to play and the break for the cup matches is not so nice. If you keep playing you can get into a rhythm and this is important for us.”   BLOEMFONTEIN CELTIC vs SUPERSPORT UNITED Owen da Gama (Bloemfontein Celtic coach) “I have been asked the question, ‘Would you prefer to play SuperSport United early in the season or later on?’. I would rather play them now, as it will give us a great opportunity to judge how far we have come since last season and show that we are ready for the new season.”   Gavin Hunt (SuperSport United coach) “It will be a tough game for us; it is never easy to go to the Free State. They have started the season well, but I am happy with the way we are playing.”   AJAX CAPE TOWN vs SANTOS Muhsin Ertugral (Ajax Cape Town coach) “The boys played their hearts out on Sunday [against Kaizer Chiefs], so it's going to be tough to get them back up for the Derby. It's not going to be easy, Santos are very physical and a organised team.”   Musa Otieno (Santos defender) “The Derby is one match you always aim to win because it doesn’t matter where we are in the League, if we beat Ajax we feel like we are the Kings of Cape Town. And after the disappointing result against Celtic, we need to show the fans that we can be successful this season.”    MAMELODI SUNDOWNS vs FREE STATE STARS Trott Moloto (Sundowns technical director) “Stars are a side that work hard collectively, but I'm impressed with the amount of work our coaching staff has put into the game. I'm sure it will be a more attacking performance from us.”   Duncan Lechesa (Free State Stars captain) “We haven’t been playing bad and have been creating a lot of chances, but luck has deserted us. It’s a must-win game against Sundowns – the worst result we can have is a draw.”

Is these kickoff error or what? It says Trott Moloto (Technical Director)... isn't that suppose to be Ted Dimitri's title? & if so what is Trott doing at sundowns? is he still a chief-scout because the last time I heard he was the advisor in the presidency... Any sundowns organiser as you call yourself with answers please ????
