Doc: That’s Championship Mentality Right There!

SportPesa ambassador, Doctor Khumalo is back in the Clubhouse column as he continues to share his views on what is happening in the world of football. This week, he welcomes everyone back as the local league in Mzansi got off to a flying start.

The Bafana Bafana legend pointed out his previous discussion on the importance of collecting maximum points before the Christmas break and applauded the clubs that managed to do so.

“Remember what I have been talking about in this column, collecting as many points as possible before the Christmas break. Look at how those who managed to get their job done have fared so far and how their good work has influenced their position on the log compared to those who didn’t.

“Wits have been consistent and I’m just going to mention two of the points I discussed towards the end of the year, which I thought were imperative. I’m talking about consistency and collecting as many points as possible. When you do that, even away from home, then you know you’re up to something. That’s championship mentality right there! You don’t just go to Goble Park and come back with maximum points. If teams aren’t noticing it, by the time they catch a wake-up, Wits will be gone soon because they’re quietly collecting points and stretching their lead. I’m telling you, there’s something I’ve seen about this Wits team. With 33 points from 16 games, it is going to be a case of ‘catch us if you can’.

“Yes, Mamelodi Sundowns are also making a strong comeback with games in hand, but you’d rather have points than games in hand.

“When you look at the chasing pack, they’ve not really been consistent because they’ve dropped points where they shouldn’t have. That’s the last thing you want to do at this stage of the season. You don’t want to lose ground with the log leaders because it gives them a breathing space.”

Khumalo went on to talk about the planning that needs to be set for the second round of the season.
