Johannesburg - Despite their recent poor form which resulted in the team failing to get the required results, Bloemfontein Celtic head coach Serame Letsoaka says that he does not regret joining Phunya Sele Sele and he believes that the only thing missing from his charges is capitalising from their goal scoring opportunities.

The 52-year-old mentor resigned from Lamontville Golden Arrows to replace Clinton Larsen at Celtic last December and has found the going much tougher than he anticipated at the City of Roses.

When Larsen departed from Celtic, they were placed 6th on the log and now they find themselves at the bottom half of the log table, occupying a 12th spot.

“No not at all, I don’t regret coming here (To Celtic),” Letsoaka told reporters in a post-match press conference on Saturday.

“This is a good working environment and I like here, we are just going through a rough patch at the moment but we’ll pull through.

“There are quality players here in this team, the only thing that we need to do is to find the back of the net because the team has been playing good football since I took over.

“But in football playing well means nothing if you are not getting the three points and at this stage we are just not getting those points.”
