Kaitano: It’s About Keeping Faith
Posted: 16 February 2021
SuperSport United recently won their league game against hoodoo side Cape Town City FC 2-1, their first victory against them in eight clashes.
Prior to that, Matsatsantsa had lost two games in succession; 1-0 to TTM in the Nedbank Cup and 2-1 to Bloemfontein Celtics, but Kaitano Tembo tells The Beautiful Game that he never lost faith, saying to us;
“Yeah Karabo (laughs), it’s a very good question. We don’t wanna try and have doubts in the players’ minds because we are bound to lose matches, it’s always about believing…keeping faith in what we do. We always going to have situations where things might notwork but you know, but having faith in our abilities and our structure.
“We are trying to instill a mindset of not giving up in our players’ minds you know, there is still a long way. I think the second round has just started, so there is still a long way and there is still a lot of football to be played.
“We are still going to lose matches as well and it’s about how we learn from our mistakes in previous matches Karabo,” concluded Kaitano.
Tembo’s side are firmly in contention of the DSTV Premiership as their out of cup competitions and their sole focus is on the league.
Selebalo Karabo Phasha.
