Da Gama on the acquisition of Sanoka


TS Galaxy mentor Owen Da Gama has reflected on the January transfer window period, having only made one signing.

The 59-year-old coach joined the Mpumalanga-based outfit last month replacing Zipho Dlangalala, who struggled to find a winning combination.

Galaxy managed to capture the signature of defender Pogiso Sanoka from Maritzburg United on a two-year deal.

Da Gama explains that they have brought in the 28-year-old to bolster their defence as the team lost some of the key players to injuries. He went on to say it was going to be unfair to bring players for the sake of it.

“I had to come in and give everybody an opportunity. When I arrived there were some injuries. Given Msimango was out injured. We were looking to see if we can strengthen that area,” Da Gama told the club’s official site.

“There were also still other players like Figo (Justice Figuareido) that were out with injuries. Karabo Tshepe is another one who was out with an injury. They haven’t even featured as yet. It was going to be unfair to bring players for the sake of just bringing out players.”

In four league matches that Da Gama has been in charge of, the Rockets have recorded two victories, one defeat and drew one.

“We’ve got to take what we have here and make the most out of it. We need to give everyone a chance,” he says in his closing remarks.
