Freese, who guided Dikwena to MTN8 honours a month ago but remains a caretaker boss, shares his early impressions of being in the hotseat in the latest KICK OFF magazine – out now!
"There were coaches at Platinum Stars before Cavin," Freese said.
The former mechanic added: "At our first meeting, rules were set and I told them nothing changes, and we've been working with mutual respect ever since.
"I'm happy that the senior players take it upon themselves to help the younger players, but I'm also happy that the younger players take their guidance."
Meanwhile, in-form midfielder Robert Ng'ambi, who already has six goals this campaign, credits Freese for valuing continuity.
"Allan has been smart in that he has come in and just continued with the same system that worked so well for us last season when Cavin was still here, " Ng'ambi said.
"Just because he is now the head coach, he hasn't found any need to confuse players by changing things just to prove that he is now in charge."
