NFD Focus: Murape Talks Spurs

In this week’s edition of Soccer-Laduma, issue number 847, newly appointed Witbank Spurs head coach, Shepherd Murape, talks about his sudden switch to the club - with the NFD Focus brought to you by Lucky Star.

Murape also talks about how he previously helped out at Spurs last season before going to help try and save Dynamos from relegation, as well as the fact that he is happy with the style of football his side is playing.

“We had a meeting with Warriors – things were agreed, there was a contract – but all of a suddent the court interdict arrived, so I said ‘I can’t hang around.’ Then when Themba Mafu, the new chairman of Spurs, who replaced the late Lot Ndlovu after he passed away in August, asked me to help them out, I agreed,” he said.

Murape also spoke about his one-month stint at the club, which has allowed him to settle quickly on his return.

“Yes, I was with Spurs for a month training these boys during the Afcon, so it’s not as if I am new. The good thing here is that players are together. Usually at clubs you’ll see different groups, but at Spurs they’re mostly youngsters from the same area, so they stick together.”

On the particular brand of football they are playing, he added, “So far I’m happy with our brand of football. I like my teams to play with a winning and attractive 4-5-1 style.”

For Murape’s full interview, check out the NFD Focus, brought to you by Lucky Star in edition 847.
