Cape Town - Free State Stars forward Ayanda Nkosi has backed Bradley Carnell to do well as Giovanni Solinas' successor.

The Italian stepped down after less than six months in charge of the club, having taken over in December 2015.

Nkosi believes Bradley, who served as an assistant to Solinas, will be a perfect fit for the job.

"Coach Bradley would be a perfect choice because it would be a continuation of the work we've been doing," he told KickOff.

"I feel it's consistency that separates top teams from the smaller ones, and that's why I feel it would be a player-perfect fit.

"It's really sad but understandable. I will miss the freedom he gave us as players. He spoke to us yesterday when we had our end-of-year meeting."

The 23-year-old attacker enjoyed regular game-time under Solinas, and is confident he can continue his first-team duties, regardless of who takes over the reins in Bethlehem.

"No I don't think so because whoever comes in would review the team and see who and what he may need," he added.

"I think I've done enough to be wanted by any coach in the country. And if not, only working harder and doing better would help me out with that," Nkosi concluded.
