Baroka’s Team Spirit Glee’s Matsimela
Posted: 28 January 2021
DSTV Premiership side Baroka FC were recently unlucky to have only walked away with a point against Kaizer Chiefs after they conceded through a late own-goal.
Nonetheless, the club’s long-time assistant coach and now-turned Head Coach, Thoka Matsimela, says he is delighted by the team spirit displayed by his team, saying to The Beautiful Game;
“Ja I think it’s very very important for the team to be together; to fight for each other, so that is the spirit we want among ourselves, for us to move forward together.
“Because football is not about an individual, it’s all about working together, even that own goal, it doesn’t mean the boy is a bad player or he just scored it intentionally, it’s football, it happens.
“All of us we need to pick him up, we need to encourage him because we still need him, we can’t kill him because tomorrow we will still need him. So Baroka is a team that likes to work with each other,” he concluded
Bakgaga next face the resurgent Cape Town City FC at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday afternoon, hoping for three vital points that will ease the pressure off the players and the technical team respectively.
