Abrahams tries to keep heads level



Chippa United coach Farouk Abrahams says he has been attempting to keep level heads in his camp ahead of their Absa Premiership derby against Ajax Cape Town on Friday.

“It’s a tough job to keep their heads from swelling but need to keep our feet on the ground,” he said as the club prepared to take on their city rivals at the Cape Town Stadium.

“I’ve been trying to get the players to play for their families and for themselves and to try and take as much pride as they can in what they do. You need to believe you can win every match,” he said.

Since taking over the former goalkeeper coach has seen Chippa to a win and two draws and lifted them out of the relegation zone.

‘Ours is a team with no outstanding individuals who can tear another team to pieces. It’s a collective effort. But we realise it won’t always be playing sailing all season. The wobbles will come but we need to stick to what we are good at,” he added.

Chippa won only their second match of the season on Tuesday when they beat Platinum Stars at the Athlone Stadium.

It lifted them to 10 points, one more than Ajax who have also won just two games this season.
