Ncikazi: Coaches Are Nothing Without Players

Lamontville Golden Arrows coach Mandla Ncikazi has dedicated his first ever recognition in the PSL awards to the players and KwaZulu-Natal.

Ncikazi has transformed Abafana Bes'thende into a force to be reckoned with, and has led to a nomination for PSL coach of the season award.

Reacting to the nomination, the coach praised his players as he feels without them he would not be receiving such recognition.

"Let me take this opportunity to thank the acknowledgment of our team perfomance this season through my nomination, players performances make good coaches," Ncikazi said, via the club's media department. 

"I feel honoured and blessed to be amongst hardworking, honest and good players. I want to thank each and everyone of them with reservation for their good work, they've created their own history within the club and South African football."

"I can't ask for more as a coach, it a great feeling. I'm fulfilled with a great growth within the team and their recognition in various forms. The biggest joy in this season nomination in the coaching category is the touch of KZN in it. 

"Whether it Benni or Manqoba, the common dominator is KZN and eThekwini. I just wish and hope this is a beginning of good in our teams. The standard of DStv Premiership keeps on growing and next season will be challenging.

"Congratulations to all the nominees in all categories and all the winners. I want to thank all the coaches in the league for their sportsmanship and professionalism portrayed throughout the season, irrespective of results," he added.
