Johannesburg - SuperSport United striker Dino Ndlovu reveals that the tactical change brought in by Gordon Igesund was an easy switch.

Read: Igesund pleased with progress

Igesund began his reign at Matsatsantsa following the axing of Cavin Johnson who had led United to a bad start in the Absa Premiership.

The former Bafana Bafana coach [Igesund] denied that he will take any coaching position until his contract with SAFA expired and a few days later the four time PSL winner (Manning Rangers, Orlando Pirates, Santos and Mamelodi Sundowns) was unveiled as the new SuperSport head coach.

According to Soccer Laduma, Ndlovu praises Igesund's impact made especially on him now that he is scoring goals again.

“It’s been so far so good under Coach Gordon. A big percentage of the team already knew him from the national team, and for us he’s more than a coach, he’s like a father figure for us,” said Ndlovu

The 24-year-old opened the scoring against Bloemfontein Celtic in a 3-0 win which was his first goal since February.

“It was not a weight on my shoulders as such, but it is my job to score goals, so it’s good to get back scoring again."

United’s next league game will be against their Pretoria rivals, University of Pretoria, on 18 October.

In the meantime, they will switch their focus to their Telkom Knockout clash against Free State Stars on Saturday, October 4 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
