Mpumalanga Black Aces new Argentinean coach, Rodolfo Zapata is determined steer the team back on calmer waters.
“I am building a winning team and setting higher standards and i am happy that my players are reacting well to those standards. When we return we can see progress and do well in the league and avoid relegation,” he added.
Having recently joined the side – now based in Johannesburg – the mid-December, the 45 year old coach has rejuvenated his men to work more as a unit and brought more hunger of success to the team. “I have short and long term goals for Black Aces as a team, for both Technical staff and players. We ended off well last season so it’s up to the players to continue that form”.
Currently lying 15th in the National First Division, Zapata said he is not concerned
about the current log standings. “I am very proud to be in an organisation like Black Aces FC, I have been here for a very short time and i think theres light at the end of the tunnel. I know we not in a good position, but i have no doubt that we are heading in the right direction both long term and short term and that we will climb up the log”.
Born in Buenos Aires formerly a goalkeeper in his time, Rolo Zapata has drawn similarities in styles between Argentinean and South African football. “Both countries have the passion for football and a desire to give their level best to express themselves on the field”.
With no matches taking place due to the Orange AFCON, the Aces mentor says he will use this time to sharpen his charges. “We head back to training today, we are going to train three times per day, the guys already got a holiday fitness program which they should have used during the holiday, and then we going to play a few friendly games. It’s a new year and players are fresh and we want to achieve a lot this year.”
