Ramovic Expresses Disappointment Missing Out On Top 4

TS Galaxy head coach Sead Ramovic admits that their last game of the season was an anti-climax as they couldn’t clinch a top four place and qualify for the CAF Inter-Club competition.

Galaxy lost 1-0 to Polokwane City at the old Peter Mokaba Stadium on the final day of the campaign and could only finish in sixth position equal on 44 points with SuperSport United behind them. Ramovic says he is happy that they made the top 8, something they dreamt of at the start of the season.

However, Ramovic hopes his charges learnt hard lessons this season that they have to be consistent in every way for them to achieve what they want.

“Of course it’s a little bit disappointing because we couldn’t reach or stay in the top four spot,” Ramovic  answered an iDiski Times question.

“And I can’t change myself because I don’t like to lose games just like a lot of other coaches. All in all if we sum up the season it was amazing. If somebody would ask us before the season started where we lost seven key players if we would be happy in the end at number six, I think we would have said yes absolutely because if we can reach number six it will be an amazing year. And this is how it was.

“We were at the Cup final, yes we lost painfully but it was also an experience where you can grow all of us.

“Now you were on number four, you lost you are number six yes it is painful but you grow. It’s again a beautiful experience for my players. If the pressure is on you have to bring the same effort, the same attitude. You have to be mentally strong you have to show up and I think this is where we missed it today.”

The Rockets will face Stellenbosch in the MTN8 quarter-finals next season after Stellies finished third.
