Katza: I Enjoyed Kicking Them

Ricardo Katza is in the building, and he has answered your questions! Today, he discusses his back-to-back league titles with SuperSport United, his current involvement in the beautiful game, and his defending techniques.

What kept you guys going for those three back-to-back league titles, because it seemed as though you were untouchable yet you had no big-name players? – Gura

Ricardo Katza: Gura, my bra. We had a desire to win from the training grounds, we use to fight to win even the smallest of games, defenders never wanted to concede goals and strikers always wanted to score... there were no friends on the field so it was a constant drive to want to achieve with no big-name players. 

Are there any chances of you coaching soccer in the future? – SeaGate4 

RK: I'm currently coaching at SuperSport United Youth Academy. The highest level I want to coach at for now is the MDC or with an SA national junior team, U17, U20 or U23 (this is my goal).  

Are you still involved in the beautiful game? – Zoh lahn

RK: Yes, Zoh Iahn, I am and I'm loving the fact that I can work with kids and see them growing into confident, strong, young men, not just on the field but also off in their personal lives. 

Who is your current best player in the PSL, and why? – wangz39

RK: My favourite player is Daine Klate. Since the first time I played with him in 2004, he has been working hard on his game. When I look at him now in 2016, I see the same hunger and drive he had then. His consistency makes me sit up and admire him, not just as a footballer but a close friend in football. I know if I walk on the field now and he's there at a set-piece, I will score because I know where he will put the ball.

You played against some of the trickiest players in the PSL, and as a defender there was no way they wouldn't come for you. When you faced the likes of Jabu Pule, Steve Lekoelea, Junior Khanye and Mkhanyiseli Siwahla, what was your secret to stopping them? – Matome_Kay

RK: My secret is, go hard and strong but clean. I did this the first time they faced me so that when they came again, they knew my intentions. Dominate your opponent early so you have the upper hand. However, those players you mentioned, Matome Kay, were some of the best our country has produced, and I enjoyed kicking them!

Stay tuned to Supporters Club as Katza will soon answer the rest of your questions!
