KHENYEZA: IMPORTANT TO SET A POSITIVE TONE
     
   
 

As a former striker, Maritzburg United assistant coach Mabhuti Khenyeza understands well the vital importance of confidence and self-belief in the game of football.
     
 

 

The well-travelled former Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns marksman arrived at the Team of Choice last month to assist newly-appointed head coach Muhsin Ertugral.

 

Still only 36-years-old, Khenyeza is expected to form a tight bond with the players, and has a potentially crucial role to play in terms of motivating and instilling confidence in the Maritzburg camp as the KwaZulu-Natal capital club.

 

This as they go into the last four months of the season needing to turn around a poor run of form and climb to safety on the league table.

 

For now though, they will leave the concerns of the Absa Premiership behind them as they get geared up for Sunday afternoon’s Nedbank Cup last 32 encounter with Witbank Spurs at the Puma Rugby Stadium (3.30pm kick-off).

 

Like the rest of the Maritzburg contingent, Khenyeza will likely be feeling the pressure to get back to winning ways as soon as possible and to steady the United ship.

 

As he explains though, it’s important to set a positive tone and to inspire confidence within the players.

 

“As a leader you can’t fall apart, what will the players do? You wake up every day and face the players, and you need to come up with a solution,” Khenyeza said.

 

“You need to lead, you need to find ways to get the team to be better. If you are going to dwell on what happened yesterday, you won’t progress. You have to think, what next, because you are facing a new game. You have to encourage the players and get the best out of them, because you need them.”
