KwaZulu Natal ABC Motsepe League side Asande FC coach Siyabonga Khanyile is not worried about other teams who want to gain promotion to the GladAfrica Championship as they are new in the second division of South African football.
The club from Uthongathi did not start well in the league, but they are starting to collect maximum points.
Khanyile’s charges won their last two matches and the former Golden Arrows defender believes things are starting to fall into place.
He told FARPost that their goal this season is to maintain their status in the league and everything else will take care of itself. “Our aim is to stay in the league and not get relegated, if we can be in the top four we can be happy, but if we go to the playoffs it will be a bonus but we won’t put pressure on ourselves because we are still new in this league, so it’s just to maintain and let the players get used to this league,” said Khanyile.
He added: “We have a lot of quality it’s just that we have to improve more on tactical movement going forward and defending but we have a very good team, very young players so they still have energy they will last the whole season and we have enough depth on the bench.”
He also believes there is much room for improvement for his side as they want to stake their claim in the ABC Motsepe League. “I think we need to improve our methods and principles of training. We must make sure that each and every training session players learn something, we must not conduct a session whereby maybe we are dealing with physical components, we have to be more tactical even technically they must improve because everything starts with the technique.
“If the technique is not good then you will struggle in the game,” concluded Khanyile.
