Heric: I’m Working On Their Mentality
Posted: 13 May 2021
DSTV Premiership side Chippa United FC got a valuable point yesterday against Black Leopards who look to be on their way to the GladAfrica Championship next season.
The Chilli Boys’ Head Coach, Vladislav Heric, exclusively tells The Beautiful Game what he had to work on since arriving in Eastern Cape a fortnight ago, saying;
“The first aspects of football that you need to jump into when you try to rescue the club is the mental point. So, we started working on the mental point of the players. I was honest to the players and straight, I spoke to them and told them what is the task (hand). Because some of them they were not aware in this situation that we are.
“With the sixteen (16) years I’ve been here, it has helped me to probably be prepared on certain points if I may say it like that. But definitely the technical team has given be proper data, good feedback about the players and performances.
“So we managed to motivate the players and they changed the mentality and they understand that their fighting for themselves and for better performances,” he concluded.
Chippa will need to start picking up maximum points in their remaining fixtures against Bloemfontein Celtic at home, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivandhila in Venda, before wrapping up their season with a date against SuperSport United at home on the fifth of June.
