"We didn't have much time to be looking and trying to find a new relationship elsewhere. Then we said perhaps the devil we know could just be better than the devil we don't know.

"We want a coach who understands this club, the history of this club, and most importantly who will play the kind of football that talks to the talent that this country has.

"As TS Galaxy I think our mandate is very clear to us, we have communicated amongst ourselves on what is it that we need to achieve, however, we know that our bar has been set very high.

"We went to CAF and represented the club proudly as champions, not because we were runners-up [in the Nedbank Cup Final]. So therefore once you have that kind of accomplishment, fortunately or unfortunately the world expects nothing but excellence from you.

"So we are coming out there to compete or to meet that expectation or even to better it. We will come out there and redefine the landscape of South African football."
