Former Black Leopards striker Coxwell 'Magic' Ratshivhadelo has warned the club's management not to destabilise the team by making many signings or changing the head coach Joel Masutha.
Lidoda Duvha will be playing Absa Premiership football again next season after a five-year absence following their victory in the promotion/relegation play-offs.
"I think I was so impressed and I'm still excited, it has been long," Ratshivhadelo tells KickOff.com.
"Funnily enough I was watching the game alone in my room, so I was like celebrating on my own, alone wearing my old t-shirt. It's just that normally I don't drink, I was just jumping around.
"I think as for buying the players they don't need to go for a shopping spree. I think they got capable players who can cope with the situation of the PSL, like we did when we got promoted.
"So I don't really think they need anything, if they can just get maybe four or five quality players. I'm not talking about the rejects from other teams, I mean quality players. They need two good defenders and maybe one striker and two midfielders, that will do. As for the goalkeeper, I think as time goes he will be good. Obviously goalkeepers are exposed by defenders."
Magic advises his ex-employers not to put themselves under pressure by trying to challenge for everything in their first season but to prioritise retaining the club's status.
"I think they must not push themselves to win anything, they must fight to keep the status. And [in the past] chopping and changing of coaches was the main downfall."
