Butler geared up for Dikwena’s season opener
Platinum Stars coach Peter Butler will lead Dikwena in his first ever match in the PSL against Maritzburg United at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace this coming Sunday afternoon.
With Dikwena having made no less than 10 signings so far ahead of the new season, expectations will be high on Butler and his team. Butler, who joined Dikwena recently, has promised that his men will be competitive.
“I think the mandate is plain and simple. I think the mandate is to be as competitive as possible as you can. We would love to finish in the top eight – anything better than that will be icing on the cake,” Butler told the press during Dikwena’s media open day on Wednesday.
Maritzburg are not going to be a walk in the park. They are a troublesome side. Butler will want to get his men to play as a team. The coach wants his men to be confident when they take to the pitch.
“I am a players’ coach and always have been. I had a good working relationship with players and rebuilt the Botswana team. I have developed a good relationship with players here. They have a great work ethic and they just have to start believing in themselves,” said Butler, the former Botswana national team coach.
While a number of players will play under Butler for the first time in a competitive match, one player – Thabang Sesinyi will be under Butler’s tutelage for a second stint. The Botswana international striker played under Butler during the coach’s tenure at the Zebras. Sesinyi has played 15 times and scored twice for the Zebras.
“I played for almost a year under his coaching. It makes it easy for me because the coach is someone I have worked with before. I am looking forward to doing well and helping the team to do well this season,” said Sesinyi.
Kickoff is at 3pm.
