Malesela – We Set Ourselves Standards

TS Galaxy Head Coach Dan Malesela says his team aims to get maximum points when they take on Cape Town City at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday.

Galaxy are currently 11th on the DSTV Premiership table, and after a good start to their league campaign, have lost their last two successive games, against Stellenbosch and Mamelodi Sundowns.

Malesela says it is important to get their season back on track, as he doesn’t want the team to start getting desperate.

“It is a lot of pressure, we don’t want to get in to a situation of desperation. We don’t want to be desperate. We set ourselves standards. It sad that we should be somewhere with points and we are not yet there. It puts a lot of pressure, I can tell you that. We have to get maximum points in the last game of the year,” Malesela told the club’s website.

 “As long as we continue playing and we are persistent on playing, moving the ball and do it positively so by moving it with intention. We will then get results.”

“Sometimes we move the ball and it is  looking good and the next thing we slow down and we stop it. That doesn’t do any hurt to the opponents. To be honest, Sundowns was beginning to tire a bit in the last 10 minutes of the first half and even now late in the game. But we let them out of the hook.”

“We are somewhere 80%. On a day where we try and simplify things, we can even come to 100%. At times, players turn to get too desperate and that is not healthy. That’s why I don’t want us to go a goal down in matches because it puts a lot of pressure on the players and we don’t need that.”
