Molekwa Remains Optimistic At Rise And Shine

Polokwane City interim coach Bernard Molekwa remains optimistic that his side will turn the corner despite losing 6 games in a row. 


Molekwa, who took over the reigns from axed head coach Zlatko Krmpotic, got his tenure off to a Rocky start this weekend when Rise and Shine suffered a 1-0 defeat against their Limpopo rivals Baroka in an Absa Premiership encounter played at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.


“I believe things will change when we return from the international break,” said Molekwa. 


“We played well on Saturday despite the defeat. We could have won if it was not for their goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze who made a lot of saves. I am positive that we will turn the corner if we continue with the form we displayed on Saturday.


“I have been in charge of this team before and I know what is expected from me. I am looking forward to this challenge until the club appoint a new coach.


“I am happy we are going into this break. It will help us a lot. We have a number of players who are injured and it will give them time to recover before our next league game. We will also work on our mistakes.”
