TS Galaxy coach – Dan Malesela has made it known that he is not feeling sorry for now being able to get Mothobi Mvala when the deal to oversea Highlands Park’s top-flight status was done
On Tuesday, Malesela told SA Football Journalists Association (Safja) media conference that he is not a coach that put his belief in ready-made players and he prefers to work with the players he has and does not find interest in other club’s players.
“I am not a coach who wishes for a particular player,” said Malesela.
“You get them it’s okay, you don’t get them you find someone else. I am not one to say ‘ey, I like that player.’ I do not like players, I want performers. I don’t like or have favourites. That is why I don’t have this association with a particular agent who can say ‘we have an association with you, and we will supply you with the players.”
“I look at what would suit the bulk of the players that are there and it he fits, then yes. I am not one to say, ‘I want that striker, I want that…’. I don’t think there is anyone we missed,” he explained.
He further said:
“So, it’s not about our history before. I am done with this thing of moving with players because sometimes they take advantage. I am now very selective of who I take with me because I need a strong mentality more. What you can give us is a technicality. It must be someone with the ambition to achieve things. It must be someone with a dream of retiring properly, not someone who is enjoying the now. I want someone who wants to get into business (after retiring) and build it.”
