September: I Spent An Hour Cutting My Dreads

Thabo September is in the building, and is answering your questions! Today, he discusses staying at SSU for so long, cutting his dreads, and how Baxter differs from the other coaches.

Thabo, what made you play for SSU for so long? Because the last time we saw something like this was the time of Thabo Mooki. – Abednigo kgoete

Thabo September: When I made my move from Bush Bucks, I had to choose between SuperSport, Orlando Pirates and Maritzburg United. I chose SuperSport because I was sold the idea of a family by Stan Matthews, it was a really good environment. I really believe that I wouldn't find what I have at SuperSport at any other clubs. I am happy and my family is happy, so I never saw the need to move.

Thabo, why did you cut your dreads? – gmoselana

TS: I think it was growth. It was time for a change. I felt dreads were fine at the time, but something needed to change for me to take it beyond football. I spent an hour or more at the salon cutting my dreads.

Thabo, what are your plans after football? – Zolani_Chosi

TS: Well, I've got a couple of businesses, but I would still be involved in football, coaching the young players at SuperSport and all over the country. But I have a few companies and I would like to spend my time giving back to South Africa as much as she's given to me.

How is Baxter as a coach, compared to Cavin Johnson and Gordon Igesund? – Lapo_Molebatsi

TS: Baxter is the only European coach to have coached me! But they are all very professional coaches who love the game. With Baxter, I think he has a clear idea of what he wants the team to be like. With Cavin, we would play a certain game, we would have to go to the other side of the field quicker and stay on the attacking side. With Gordon, it was more of a slow build-up and then up the tempo when we got to the final third. So they all have their own special methods. Baxter has his method and I think it works, you can see that by the results and through what he did with Kaizer Chiefs.

Stay tuned to Supporters Club for the remainder of this interview!
