New Polokwane City coach Jozef Vukusic says he knows the kind of players he is going to work with in the coming season.
The Slovakian was appointed as City coach on Wednesday, replacing Bernard Molekwa who is now going to be an assistant coach.
Vukusic says he is excited to work with the players he has been given as he aims to improve the team. Rise and Shine finished in 12th place last season and will be looking to improve in the coming season.
“I like the challenge. It is interesting to come to South Africa from Europe to coach these kind of players,” Vukusic told the media at his unveiling.
“I know that African players have a lot of potential but there is a lot of space to improve them. I take this opportunity like my role, my challenge to progress the players and improve them and progress the whole club.
“We have our objectives to work for the long-term and to do the project for the whole club from the first team to the development.”
Vukusic previously coached in South Africa during his time with FC Cape Town in the National First Division from 2010 to 2012.
“When I heard that there is a possibility to coach here, I checked the team. I watched some videos. I know the players, they are very good.
“Now we will get new players, we will need to put everything together.
“I know the results from last season and results from the season before. I would think how I better the results once I start working with the players. What I want is the players to play on their potential.
“I'm sure that if they can achieve that, they will have good results.”
