Different pressure for De Sa

2015-04-11 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Roger De Sa has revealed that the pressure of coaching Ajax Cape Town is completely different from his time at Orlando Pirates.

In an exclusive interview with Sport24, De Sa admitted that life at Ajax is much different from his stint at the Soweto club despite similar routines in coaching.

“There are different pressures which come with each job. Some clubs expect you to win every game and other directors will only expect you to win half your games,” said the Urban Warriors mentor.

“Obviously then the ammunition you’re given is totally different. However, I believe that being a coach in a professional environment is the same all over. I had a fantastic stint at Pirates and am grateful for my time there, but I’m still coaching a football team who are ambitious.”
