Kaitano Tembo was fired by SuperSport United only a week ago. Former goalkeeper Andre Arendse has since been appointed as the man in charge for the remainder of the campaign.
This is a role which he holds dearly and cherishes.
“This is a massive honour for me because I’ve got a rich history with the club.” He told the club media.
“I’ve won league titles with the club, and I know what it takes as a player what one has to put in in order to get success. But the players are on the right track mind in terms of what we need to put into every single game going into the rest of their season out, and that for me is going to be critical.” He added.
“The remaining matches are certainly not the easiest and that is with all due respect to those teams because every single team will pose a different challenge to us. There is also added challenge of playing away in some of these games and the travel that we need to undertake to get to these venues, but it is the same for every team.
“The only thing I did say to the players is that the pressure is on for a top eight finish. The club speaks about this pride history that we have with consecutive top eight finishes over the years, but our ambition must be more than that.
“We have the capabilities. We certainly have the ability to finish as high as we possibly can up the big table this season.
“We mustn’t get carried away with the result we picked up against Chiefs because the next game is just that, we’ve got to tackle that as they come,” he spoke.
