How Ncikazi Motivates Arrows
Posted: 1 March 2021
Lamontville Golden Arrows have had a great start to the 2021 DSTV Premiership season under the well-spoken and humble Mandla Ncikazi.
The Beautiful Game asked Ncikazi as to how does he pick up the lads’ mood after a rare defeat, and he said to us;
“It’s just that one my brother, I use positivity to motivate the team. We play their clips of previous matches; show how good they are, and a loss is a lesson, we lost in Cape Town, we came back and I think we won two matches, same scenario, use those examples.
“So after we lost 4-3; we came back, we beat Maritzburg United and Pirates, so this is the same scenario. We are still stronger, we are in fifth place (in the league), we will try to maintain the standard and accept that,” he concluded.
Abafana Bes’thende are currently sitting pretty on fifth spot with twenty eight points from sixteen outings, and a win against Baroka FC at home on Wednesday, it will most certainly confirm their status as a top eight club this season, allowing them to look forward to the MTN8 tournament next term.
