Freese: The party is over

Telkom Knockout

Freese and his players did themselves proud when they beat Orlando Pirates 3-1 on penalties to lift up the MTN8 trophy – plus an R8-million cheque.

Freese tells that his mind is now on the next tournament – the Telkom Knockout, which kick off this week.

“The party is over,” Freese says. “I will give my players a rest on Monday and we are back on Tuesday to prepare for the next Telkom Cup game against Maritzburg United on Sunday.”

The Dikwena coach says he will warn his players against complacency after their success so early in the season.

“We will sit down and talk about it with the players. It is important to stay grounded after the success in the MTN8 tournament.”

Freese appealed to the people in the North West Province to come in big numbers to support them in the League.

“I was happy to see some travelling supporters in Durban on Saturday,” he says. “The King [Kgosi Leruo Molotlegi] was also there to support us.

“We would like to see more people from the province coming in big numbers to support the team.”
