Barker – A bit disappointed

AmaZulu coach Steve Barker is a bit disappointed in his team’s performance in the goalless draw with Platinum Stars on Wednesday night at the Princess Magogo Stadium.

Barker said he felt that his team did not give it their all, especially playing at home. But he says that he can’t really point to what exactly went wrong.

“It was a dog fight between two teams that needed points. I am not sure if it was the two week break, but we just did not give it our all.

“I am a bit disappointed because most of the game was played on their half. Once again players showed that they can still fight and you might never know how far this point could go at the end of the season,” said Barker.

Barker said he knew that the last four matches were not going to be easy and they are not playing in a perfect world.

“It’s not a perfect world and I knew that it was not going to be easy. There are three games to go. We are still positive that we can still escape the relegation zone and shall we find ourselves there, I am sure we will bounce back,” he said.

With three more games to go, Barker said he will be happy to finish on 32 or 33 points.

“My target is 32 or 33 points, I think that would be enough to save us from the relegation zone and we are battling with Swallows. We need to lift ourselves up on the Saturday match and also give some non regular players a chance to play,” he said.

    I commend the players and the technical staff, particularly, Steve for the way they have committed themselves in turning things around at amaZulu. We now have identity when it comes to build ups and the general techniques. Those ball playing skills are friendlier to the eye. Those playing identity is critical in the sense that they it can be used to determine whether a player to be recruited fits in the general set-up or not. If he can not familiarise himself the way amaZulu play,it does not matter how good he is, cannot be an asset to the team.

    I hope this club notices that Steve has has the ability to mould younger players into professionals. There are previous coaches who tried it, but the results were not forthcoming because the players were not ready. Please give him a chance, whether the club goes down or not.
