April’s Coach Of The Month On His Position And Young SA Coaches

Fadlu Davids has an exemplary record as coach of Maritzburg United across his three stints as interim, however, he is not talking about a permanent post yet.
 
 
The 35-year-old has spent the years since his retirement learning from the likes of Ernst Middendorp and undergoing coaching courses to improve his knowledge, however, has remained modest despite his success on the sidelines.
 
Having worked as an assistant to both Middendorp and Roger de Sa this season, Davids boasts a better point return than either of them up to now and has lost just three of the games that he has taken charge of in the last two years.
 
Now, having clinched the Coach of the Month award for April, Davids is taking aim at clinching a top eight place for the Team of Choice but is not being drawn into commenting about what could happen when the season comes to an end. 
 
 
He told the media today, “I don’t comment about (the) interim head coach or whatever it is, I’m leaving it until the end of the season.”
 
Meanwhile, the former Platinum Stars man believes that some young coaches in the country aren’t working hard enough to put themselves in successful positions. He said, “I think it’s important that young coaches are given an opportunity in South Africa, but on the same hand young coaches with potential have to empower themselves. They have to aim to be the best.
 
“A lot of the time coaches want recognition without putting in the work and at the end of the day, yes, we should be given opportunities. But we should also empower ourselves and set ourselves to the same standards that are set overseas. If we raise that bar then things will improve and South African football as a whole will improve.”
