Igesund Happy With His Squad
As the final squad for 2013 Afcon, coach Gordon Igesund believes he has a well balanced group of players ahead of the important tournament. The former Moroka Swallows coach said that he had to mix youth and experience to have a well balanced team.
He told Soccer-Laduma that they will be working on tactics and techniques for the team going forward.
"I have to be honest with you, we have a well balanced team. I have over 10 players who are 25 years older and below, but at the same time I have players who are experienced in the national colours.
"I have players who can play in different positions. In the past camps we didn't really work on the whole team as we didn't know which players will be in the final team. Now that we have the 23 member squad we will see what formation we can play against each opposition. But what makes me happy and proud is that we have a well balanced squad for the Afcon tournament," the four time PSL title winning coach said.
