Nale Applauds Barker

Mpumalanga Black Aces winger, Abia Nale, says AmaZayoni coach, Clive Barker, has instilled a tradition of discipline that has helped the team’s cause so far this season.

"Since arriving at AmaZayoni, I have learnt a lot under the tutelage of the astute coach Clive Barker, who always encourages us as players to play to our potential and instilled a tradition if you like, of playing a very good brand of attacking football,” Nale told the official Aces website.

Nale added that playing under the 1996 Afcon winning coach is an experience any player can dream of.

"He is one of the best coaches ever to come out of this country. He always makes you feel that you’re the best player in your department or position and that does wonders for our confidence. Even if you are not playing as regularly as you would like, you always have a sense that my turn will come soon as he constantly engages with us players on a one-on-one sessions," commented Nale.

Meanwhile, the former Kaizer Chiefs winger said he was enjoying his football all over again after joining AmaZayoni on loan from Chiefs at the beginning of the season.

"I’m very much thankful to both the management and the technical team for giving me an opportunity to do what I love, which is playing regular football. As long as I am in the team making a valuable contribution then I am happy. That’s all you can ask for as a player, to be in the team and playing consistently.

"I have played less football in the past year or so and I also struggled with injuries in the process for the better part of the first round, however, I’m very happy to be back again playing regularly. As a player there is nothing you can cherish more than being on the field of play and showcasing your skills," concluded Nale.

Aces will play Platinum Stars at Mbombela Stadium on Friday night.
