Phala Backs Johnson's Youth Focus

SuperSport United winger, Thuso Phala, is happy with the arrival of younger players who are set to bolster the Matsatsantsa squad ahead of the 2014/15 PSL season.

Speaking to the Siya crew, the 28-year-old speedster concurred with Cavin Johnson’s youth policy. 

“The coach is a firm favourite of youth. Last season we were one of the youngest teams. This is great for continuity and it shows the coach is thinking long-term,” said Phala.

“Young players are hungry and ambitious and that’s what they have brought into the squad. It’s great to have Andile Fikizolo and Lerato Manzini settling in the team. Andile trains like he’s been here for a while which is good for him. A lot is expected from him and Lerato.” 

“Last season we didn’t win a single trophy and that’s something we want to correct in the upcoming season, but I don’t want to put pressure on the team, for now we are enjoying our pre-season and looking forward to our first fixture in August which will be against Wits away from home,” concluded Phala.
