C.A.R TRIP NICE

The trip was really nice; we went to Turkey first then Central African Republic.

It was my first time to see people supporting their country like that; very hostile to opponents. Their stadium is twice bigger than our national stadium. The food was nice. The food was the normal African diet of fish, chicken and rice.

NEVER STRANDED

I hear there were a lot of rumours at home about our trip; the truth is that we were never stranded.

It is only that we were at the airport longer than expected, but we still had our rest and accommodation prepared. It is not like we slept at the airport.
Morale high

Forget our past results; we are now up against our neighbours on Saturday. We want to fight like in our own derbies and rivalries in the league. Morale is too high in camp and players want to fight for the country. We want points and of course with a few new players around this is not the same team.

FIRED COACH

With Pitso Mosimane fired as Bafana Bafana coach we are faced with a difficult task ahead of us.

This is actually a disadvantage to us. Maybe our plan was based on the past play of that team and this change may mean may have to change our plans. Players normally fight very hard to impress new coaches so we will see and guard against that.

SUPPORT US

I know there are a lot of Batswana who support South African teams even more than local ones.

I wish to appeal to all Batswana to practice patriotism in this game and rally behind this team of the nation. We will not disappoint the few locals coming to the stadia to support us in fact we appreciate them.

HUNGRY FOR THE LEAGUE

Oh yes we beat Rollers this past weekend minus a lot of us and vice versa.

The issue here is that I am hungry for local league action but it is up to the coach to decide whether I will play after the Zebras or not. I will do what he wants but I hear the coach says he still want eight goals from both Mara and myself.

ALL KASI DEAR

All Kasi have decided to be my personal sponsors for the two year duration i will spend at Platinum FC in Zimbabwe.

This is a very good and the first of its kind in the country. I will be marketing a local brand away from home. They will be supplying me with sneakers, tracksuits, rain coat, t-shirts and any other piece of clothing they manufacture.
