Unsettling times for Baroka, says club captain

Cape Town - Baroka FC captain Olaleng Shaku has conceded that the regular change of coaches is making survival all the more difficult.

With ten matches to play this season, the top-flight rookies are rooted to the foot of the league table, four points adrift of safety.

Milton Dlamini and Kgoloko Thobejane are currently co-coaching the team following the suspension of Jacob Sakala, who had taken over from Thobejane just a couple of months ago.

Shandu admits it's not an ideal situation to have so much chopping and changing going on.

"He (Dlamini) is a good coach who knows his game but he joins us at a critical stage of the season and my concern is that we have many young and inexperienced players who may be confused by the constant changes in the technical team," Shandu told the SowetanLIVE.

"Not so long ago we had coach Jacob Sakala who coached for only two matches‚ then Kgoloko returned briefly and now we have another coach.

"For us senior players we understand and we can deal with the changes but for younger players it could be unsettling.

"We will guide them so that we get through this phase and save this team that has given us so much‚" he added.

Next up for the struggling Limpopo team is a home clash with high-flying Kaizer Chiefs.

Shandu is hoping that Baroka can continue their good run against Chiefs - in three previous games, the Limpopo side have drawn 0-0 with Amakhosi in the league, beaten them on penalties in a friendly encounter, and also recorded a 2-1 shock win in the Nedbank Cup six years ago.

"Chiefs have not beaten us in an official match before and hopefully that will be more motivation.

"I know it is history that counts for nothing or little but we can use it to get the better of them."
