“I know tactics are there, but a football game was played tonight. That’s what we need. Sometimes we praise 0-0 and give credit to 0-0, but I would love to see 2-2, I would love to see 3-3 ,I would love see 4-3, I would like to see 5-3. That’s how football should be played.”
“Aces played beautiful football; you see he [Muhsin Ertugral] doesn’t park the bus, Mushin attacks. Mpumalanga Black Aces is a very good team.”
