Links On The Rise In Denmark
Gift Links has been working hard to improve his game at Danish club Aarhus Gymanstikforening (while also been keeping an eye on the movements of some of his former coaches).
AGF are currently in the top three of the Danish league, and Links, who is now in his second season at the club, has been in good form this year, helping the club challenge at the top.
Speaking to Rob Delport in Edition 7 of iDiski Times, Links says it’s been okay so far this season.
“Yeah, happy with my form because I’ve been doing well, grabbing some goals and assists, and yeah we will see where we can improve in our next games,” Links told iDiski Times.
“I have improved a lot. Especially with my defensive work. Because when I first came to Denmark, I was struggling a bit with that. But now I have improved a lot, and can go up and down!”
Links has also been keeping tabs on his former coaches who have been moving around the world.
It was Cavin Johnson who first promoted Links at Platinum Stars, and Johnson is now Pitso Mosimane’s assistant at Al Ahly. Links of course had a stint in Egypt, playing for Al-Assyouty Sport.
“Obviously I’m happy, for both of them [Johnson and Mosimane], because they are really top coaches, and I think they’ll really have a good time that side because they are coaching the best team in Africa, and they’ll succeed for sure.”
He’s also seen his former Cape Town City coaches, Benni McCarthy and Vasili Manousakis join up at AmaZulu.
“Yeah, I’ve been following them [McCarthy and Manousakis], and they really doing good so far, and I’m happy that coach Benni is back again. I spoke to them both after they went to AmaZulu to congratulate them. But the only thing that made me sad was that Mateo decided to leave City too!”
