Coach Urges PSL Berth For Tuks Playmaker

UL coach, Burney Mampshika, insists PSL clubs should be queuing up to sign UP-Tuks playmaker Jeremiah Nkwana.
 
The classy number 10 produced an outstanding performance to help Tukkies produce a morale boosting 5-1 victory over tournament newcomers UL on Monday night.
 
Despite seeing his team slump to their third defeat, Mampshika heaped praise on the title holders’ attacking midfielder, saying he has the quality to play for any team in South Africa’s top tier.
 
“They (UP-Tuks) have many good players, but the number 10 stood out for me. The way he played last night, he could easily play for any team in the PSL. They should sign him before it’s too late,” he said.
 
Mampshika admitted UL were beaten by the better team on the night and feels his players have a lot of hard work to do if they still want to be successful in Varsity Football this season.
 
“I don’t know what went wrong because we also had our chances. They were just better than us last night. All credit to them. It seemed they wanted the win the more. Maybe it was because they lost so badly to UJ the week before. I don’t know.
 
“We’ve never lost by such a large margin, so it hurts but it’s not over for us yet. If we can get three wins, maybe four, then we’re still in it. We are not out of the race yet,” he said.
 
The disgruntled coach said it is vital for UL to win their remaining fixtures in Varsity Football. Next week they travel to Cape Town to face UWC. The match should provide the Limpopo students with a tough challenge after the Cape side bagged their first win when they outclassed NMMU-Madibaz 2-1 in Port Elizabeth on Monday.
 
“We have to remain focused and get the win in Cape Town. It will be all or nothing and then hopefully we can use the momentum to progress,” Mampshika said.
 
Mampshika says he will be working hard to iron out some of the weaknesses in his team this week as they look to lift their spirits after a dismal start to their debut season in Varsity Football.
