Mugeyi joy at first win



Chippa United completed a comprehensive 3-1 victory over Black Leopards on Sunday, just their third win of the season.

It is a positive sign for coach Wilfred Mugeyi in just his second match in charge after becoming Chippa’s fifth coach this season during the break for the Africa Cup of Nations.

The former Ajax Cape Town assistant coach hopeful the team can kick-on.

Was it joy or relief to get the victory over Black Leopards on Sunday, your first points in the job?

I would say joy, in the short time that I have been here I have seen that we have a very good group of players that I believe can achieve good things. We played well and were positive in our approach to the game and that contributed greatly to the win.

You must be pleased too that your team came under some pressure in that game but did not wilt?

Yes, I think we dropped off a bit in the second half and that allowed Leopards to come back at us after we had a two goal lead. Then they scored and I think that gave the players a fright. Thankfully we scored a third and took the points. It was a good performance overall.

You have BidVest Wits next on Wednesday, a tough game?

Very tough, every match is difficult at this level and we know that. But we have fight and we will be prepared for the match. What we need is a run of good results, not just a win here or there. The players know that and I believe they are motivated.

You have taken a chance on Masibusane Zongo and he repaid you against Leopards. Can you get his career back on track?

I hope so, he is such a great talent that we have to try. I have spoken to him a lot and he understands what is wanted from him and what we expect. He put in a brilliance performance against Leopards and what we need to see is that level week in week out. His fitness levels are not where they should be, but that will come with the more he plays.
