The former Bafana Bafana tactician was appointed Cavin
Johnson's successor at Matsatsantsa and has already led the Pretoria giants to
title glory after seeing off Platinum Stars in the Telkom Knockout final.
United will, however, have to put that success to the back
of their minds when they travel to reigning Premiership champions and bitter
Tshwane rivals Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday, with the impetus now being on
cutting down the 13-point gap between themselves and current runaway leaders
And Williams, who saved an extra-time penalty in this
weekend's Ziwa Mo success over Dikwena, is confident that the team can put
their full trust in Igesund, who has four top-flight titles under his belt with
four different teams.
"We know that we have a very great, experienced coach
in Gordon (Igesund),” Williams told Football411.
“He's experienced enough to know how to get us ready for the
game against Sundowns on Wednesday.
"Furthermore, we also know the game is significant
because the league (title) remains our ultimate goal.
"When he (Igesund) took over, he told us that our
target is the league and even though we are 13 points behind them (Chiefs) we
still have belief that we will catch up with them, because he's told us so.
"He told us that Chiefs still have to play the (CAF)
Champions League and they will still slip up, we believe so because he knows
all about this league and so we know that even though it's a derby (against
Sundowns) and it won't be easy, we are gunning for three points.
"That's just how much we've learnt to trust him and
believe everything he says."
