Roger Sikhakhane says that Kaizer Chiefs winger, William Twala, won't be phased with the pressure when coming up against his former team, Orlando Pirates, in the Soweto Derby.
The former Chippa United coach spoke to Soccer Laduma about the prospects of the Soweto Derby and more in particular discussing the role Twala will play - if afforded the opportunity.
“Look, he is a player who doesn’t care about the pressure and loves to get the job done. He takes his career seriously and I think if he gets a chance on Saturday he will do well. Since I’ve coached him from our days in the NFD, he’s never disappointed me,” he said.
Sikhakhane worked with Twala during his days as Chippa United coach and holds the pacy winger in high regard, stating that he is fearless when coming up against opponents.
“Players are generally ‘on and off’ – good in one game and poor in the next – and that’s natural, but I can say that in 90 percent of our games he did well. He is not scared of anyone he’s faced with,” he added
The former coach added that Twala should look to play his normal game in Saturday’s league encounter between the two Soweto giants.
“It’s a big stage for him, but I’d advise him to play his normal game. Yes, he’s at Chiefs now, which is a different environment to Chippa United, but he can adapt,” Sikhakhane concluded.
