Bloemfontein Celtic goalkeeper Patrick Tignyemb says his side are ready to continue fighting for results and also help coach Serame Letsoaka stay with Phunya Sele Sele.
Celtic recorded a memorable midweek 3-1 victory over Mamelodi Sundowns, breaking the Brazilians’ 18-match unbeaten record in the process.
It was Celtic’s first win after a barren seven match winless spell as the pressure mounted on coach, yet Tignyemb – who has played down allegations linking him to the recent match-fixing scandal – says his side will keep fighting to help the team regain their image while giving their coach their full support.
“We fighting for the coach,” he tells KickOff.com. “He came here to help the team. It was difficult for him and it was also difficult for us.”
Celtic sit 12th in the Absa Premiership standings, just ten points above bottom-placed Martizburg United who have two games in hand, and Tignyemb is determined his side will give their all for a strong end to the season.
“We will keep fighting,” he said. “We are happy with the result against Sundowns.
“We knew that we will turn the corner and we shall continue fighting.”
Celtic face Golden Arrows in their next PSL fixture next month.
