Speaking to the media after the game, the Dutch mentor who has coached in the Netherlands, Turkey, China and Portugal, was asked for his assessment on South African football. 

“It is difficult to answer after two games; I cannot give an overall message…” he said told the media on Saturday evening.

“I liked the crowd on the opposite side (in City’s stands), they were really entertaining and really supporting, so sometimes you have less people who really support than a lot of people who are whistling, so I like the attitude but I agree that there are not a lot of spectators. 

“But I also understood that when you play Kaizer Chiefs there are a lot of visitors,” he added.
