Cape Town - Franklin Cale admits the arrival of Gordon Igesund at Highlands Park has allowed him to play with more creative freedom at the Premiership side.

The four time South African title winning coach was unveiled as the new Lions of the North head coach following the redeployment of Alan Freese into the club's development structures.

His arrival has started with a mixed bag of results; one league win over Chippa, two draws with Free State Stars and Maritzburg United and Saturday's 2-1 Telkom Knock Out loss to Orlando Pirates.

And with a mandate of survival for the former Bafana Bafana boss, Cale says the manager whom he played under as a teenager at Ajax Cape Town has made an immediate impact - despite their narrow loss.

"It's good to have coach Gordon here. I played under him when I was still a young boy," he told reporters after the game.

"The players are quite happy, the coach gives us our freedom to go out on the park and play good football.

"I am just a little bit disappointed, we could have won this game. In the first half we had six clear-cut chances, we didn't put them away.

"We are a professional side and if you are professional you must put those chances away. But yeah, I am happy for Pirates."
