Lentjies: Performance is not important


Chippa United will visit Tshakuma Tsha Madzivhandila at Old Peter Mokaba Stadium with one thing on their mind, a victory to move them away from the relegation zone.

The Chilli Boys are on 15th position on the Dstv Premiership log and a victory will take them to 28 points with one match to go in the league.

Veteran midfielder Kurt Lentjies believes his side should focus on getting the results tomorrow.

“We’ve had a couple of days to work with the coach (Lehlohonolo Seema), so it’s good for us. We have this time to understand his philosophy and the way he wants to play,” said Lentjies.

“Obviously performance is not much important, the results is important than anything else.

“The only plan is obviously to get three points you know, we know the situation, we know where we find ourselves. For the next two games we have two cup finals coming ahead.

“But let’s focus on TTM first, obviously with a good result whether we are playing home or away, we need to win at all costs,” said Lentjies.

The Cape Town-born player is not focused on his individual performance as he wants to help the team avoid relegation.

“Now is not about personal goals and glory, it’s just about the team and it has always been like that for me.

“I don’t look at my performance I’d rather look at how I can make my team better, from an individual point of view.

“For me it’s to be influential in the team and with players that we have that’s the only thing that’s important to me, getting the three points,” added Lentjies.
