Polokwane - Despite their poor start to the 2014/15 Absa Premiership campaign, Polokwane City head coach Kostadin Papic vowed to keep the Limpopo-based team in top flight football.The Serbian tactician joined Rise and Shine following the departure of Boebie Solomons earlier in the month.City are currently flirting with relegation and sit second from bottom on the overall PSL log, but the former Orlando Pirates mentor is optimistic that his side will finish the season out of the relegation zone. “Bill Clinton” admitted that his main ambition is to avoid the PSL and NFD promotion/relegation playoffs which his club managed to overcome in the off-season. “It’s so far so good for me here at the club,’’ said Papic. “The club is looking very promising. I am quite impressed with their efforts to be honest with you. “The players need to adapt with the new system that I will introduce. I must recognise the quality that they have. “My main objective here is to help the club to avoid relegation and to also make sure we don’t take part in the playoffs as it was the case last season.”City played to a 2-all stalemate at home against the struggling AmaZulu in Papic’s first match in charge two weeks ago. Their next game will be against the reigning champions Mamelodi Sundowns at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday. Kick-off is at 15:00.
