Dikgacoi sets sights high


Not only is Dikgacoi looking forward to adding more national caps to his belt tonight when South Africa take on Ghana in an international friendly in Bloemfontein, but also winning medals with his team Golden Arrows this season, starting with the Telkom Knockout tournament which begins this weekend.

Speaking to Kickoff.com at the Bafana camp yesterday, Dikgacoi said whilst his current focus was on helping his country beat Ghana tonight, he will also be happy if Abafana Bes’thende put one over Kaizer Chiefs in the Telkom Knockout in Durban on Saturday.

“We have been performing well over the past few seasons, but always end up empty-handed. Now we are desperate to end the drought and put some silverware in our cabinet.”

“Right now, I’m fully focused on the game against the Black Stars, and only after that will I start to think about the game on Saturday.

“I am sure my teammates at Arrows are already looking forward to the game against Chiefs on Saturday and I am confident that we will continue to do the same job we did against Sundowns recently.”

The Brandfort-born midfielder, who has been on trial with English Premiership side Fulham this season, has already scored goals against Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns this season.

Kaizer Chiefs coach Muhsin Ertugral has already predicted an exciting game against Arrows.

“Both teams are playing clean, offensive football and I am already looking forward to an exciting game on Saturday.”

Ertugral told KickOff.com that defender Dominic Isaacs, signed from Ajax Cape Town a few months ago, and striker Kaizer Motaung, Junior, have yet to recover from their injuries.
