Baroka Coach: We Are No Longer Giant Killers

Baroka FC coach Wedson Nyirenda says the team should no longer be called “giant killers” because they are now giants themselves.

The Limpopo outfit advanced to their first-ever Telkom Knockout final after defeating Bidvest Wits 1-0 on Sunday afternoon.

Baroka have no eliminated Wits and Mamelodi Sundowns, and Nyirenda feels they should no longer be considered giant killers.

“It feels great to be in the final for the first time in my life as a PSL coach. It’s something very good. We’re very excited but I think that excitement should end today so that we can start thinking about other things. Otherwise it was a great game,” Nyirenda told SuperSport after the match.

“We did what we had to do which is to manage the game after the goal. It was not easy you could see how they were rotating the ball. All that we have planned has worked. We knew that their strength was set-pieces [and] their wing play and we closed those things. So it did not work for them.

“The things that we are doing with the boys at training are working. The boys are so disciplined at the back. They have something to prove. It is the best thing about our team. Everyone wants to prove something.

“We’re no longer to be called giant killers but we are now giants,” he said.
