Stellenbosch XI: Awaiting
This afternoon’s DStv Premiership match begins at 15:30. The match is broadcast live on SuperSport PSL. The match WILL NOT be shown on SABC.
I’m simply collaborating with the club’s administration to assemble the finest possible team. The coach of the Orlando Pirates told Sowetan.
“A number is merely a number. I must adjust to working with this number. I am pleased to do that.
“It’s complicated because we’re trying to make all the players feel the same, but we only have a limited amount of time to practice and share minutes.
“However, this is part of my responsibilities at Orlando Pirates. It is difficult to choose, or to decide which item is number one.
“I’ve worked with other European clubs with smaller squads, more experienced squads, and less players. You must adjust yourself.
I’m learning a lot this season about how to keep everyone as involved in the process as feasible, given the size of the team.
