Cape Town - New Free State Stars head coach Denis Lavagne has revealed that his tactical philosophy at the club will be based on an attacking brand of football.
Stars appointed the Frenchman to replace departed Italian coach Giovanni Solinas, who spent one season at the club.
Stars will be looking to compete in the top eight after Lavagne reportedly signed a three year deal.
"It's a big challenge to come and work in South Africa‚ which is a big league; a top league in Africa along those in Egypt‚ Morocco and Tunisia," Lavagne told Times Media Digital.
"So, for me it's a good challenge and I hope I will be able to deliver the results. I know [South African] teams that have competed in the Champions League and other African club competitions from my time working at Coton Sport and Etoile Sahel.
"The standard of the South African sides has always been high and the rest of Africa knows it is a strong league.
"I like my teams to play offensive football but you know you always have to adapt your convictions with the quality of your players.
"I wait to learn more about my new players before deciding how we will play. But if it is possible‚ it will be an offensive approach. You always have to adapt your approach."
