SuperSport United skipper Ronwen Williams believes that his side is on the right track despite lacking a positive attitude at the beginning of the season.
The 28-year-old insists that it’s been tough in the sense that they haven’t played a competitive match in two weeks, but it gave them time to bond and gel together, as they had a few outings as a team and it brought more togetherness.
“Aside from our team buildings, training has been intense, we are using this time to load as we have many games coming in January so there will be no time to do much then,” Williams told the club’s official website.
The Bafana Bafana international revealed that the spirit is high as they won their last game, and the intensity in their 11 v 11 games has been very good and they can’t wait to play a competitive match again.
“That’s what we are about as a club, having a positive attitude at all times, we lacked that a bit in the beginning but we are slowly getting it back,” he adds.
“We are not far off from the pack, our game in hand takes us two points off the leaders, we set ourselves goals and we are on the right track, which should be motivation for us as players.”
Matsatsantsa’s shot-stopper admitted they are not expecting an easy game from Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday evening at Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium. He believes Amakhosi’s mentor Gavin Hunt was just unfortunate in his previous games in charge.
“Coming to the next league match against Kaizer Chiefs, Coach Gavin is straight forward, you know what you get with him, he is never satisfied and I like that attitude. He is a winner, he is obviously in an unfortunate situation at the moment, but he is a fighter and he’ll come out stronger,” says the SuperSport goalminder.
Williams also sent words of felicitations to the club legend Thabo September on his appointment as United’s second assistant coach to Kaitano Tembo.
“He deserves it, he is such a wonderful human being, always willing to help, he has played the game and won many titles so his experience will be vitally important and hopefully his success can rub off on the team. He is highly respected by the players, so his input will definitely not fall on deaf ears, he has done it so we can only learn from him,” he says in conclusion.
