Cape Town - Polokwane City coach, Kosta Papic, is one of only four of foreign-born coaches left in the PSL but he has rejected the title of ‘foreign coach’ in a chat with Sport24.

Along with Papic only Tuks’ Sammy Troughton, Free State Stars’ Kinnah Phiri and Mpumalanga Black Aces’ Muhsin Ertugral were born outside of South Africa but the coach of Rise and Shine has said that the football one plays, and not one’s nationality, should be the focus.

“It is not necessary to talk about foreign or local coaches it is necessary to talk about the results they are going to get,” Papic told Sport24.

“Personally, I don’t feel that I am a foreign coach at all I am just from another country but my heart and everything is here.

“It is either you are good or you are not, that is all.

“The style of every coach is different, whether he is local or foreign.

“If the club hires a foreign coach he must bring something new to the country.”
