Coach Mabhuti Khenyeza says all his focus is now at his new side, TS Galaxy Football Club campaigning in the GladAfrica Championship.
The KwaZulu Natal born mentor took the coaching reigns from Dan Malesela who was released by the club after a string of poor results.
Khenyeza won his first game in charge as his side beat TS Sporting 1-0 this past weekend.
“I give credit to my players for the victory because they worked really hard. They pushed beyond the limits, which was good. I give credit to them, because they are the ones who put in the boots, us, we’re just there to guide them, “said Khenyeza.
Just a few months ago Khenyeza was in the dugout at AmaZulu as an assistant to former coach Cavin Johnson who was fired after a poor run of results, and to now suspended AmaZulu coach Josef Vukušič.
Now he finds himself in charge at TS Galaxy in what is arguably the biggest challenge in his early career, but coach Mabhuti believes he is up to the challenge despite some people saying the Coaching job might have come a bit too soon for the Galaxy head man.
“Even me I will never decide on the career of someone else, I’m just worried about what is in front of me. I am fetching my life; I am dealing with that, “added Khenyeza.
The Kameelrivier side is now on 28 points after 22 games in the GladAfrica Championship, just 2 points shy of the 30 points they had after the same number of games last season. But Khenyeza says it will take time before the players are used to his own methods at the Club.
The coach also comments on the talks where it is alleged that he left AmaZulu without the blessing of the club.
“It’s going to take time, weeks and weeks. And we will see how we improve the side in some certain elements of the game.
“In football you can’t just change, no! With regards to that (AmaZulu) I will talk about TS Galaxy because I’m at Galaxy. I don’t talk about AmaZulu.
“AmaZulu are there in Durban and I am here in Joburg. Some other things, no, I don’t dwell on other things like AmaZulu, “concluded the Galaxy coach.
