Cape Town - SuperSport United head coach Eric Tinkler
remains defiant that he is the best man to lead the club despite a poor run of
form that culminated in a 4-1 loss to Wits on Saturday.
United have won just once in 2018 while losing
three and drawing once. Currently Matsatsantsa are flirting with the relegation
zone with just a four-point gap between themselves and the drop zone.
"I am not going to create any miracles. I am a
person who has a lot of belief in my ability," speaking to reporters, the former Bafana Bafana midfielder said.
"I am a hard worker. I have never
given up on challenges in my life and I don’t plan to start now.
"We are in this situation and we can
get ourselves out, nobody is going to help us.
"The only way we can do that is
by lifting ourselves and motivating ourselves to come and perform for the next
game and every game from now is going to be a fight."
Some fans called for Tinkler to resign
after the hammering at the Lucas Moripe Stadium last Saturday, although the
47-year-old understands their frustrations.
He concluded: "It is only normal and I
would feel the same way. Fans must understand we feel just as bad if not worse.
"We are professional sportsmen, we
don’t like losing but it is part and parcel of the game and I can’t blame them
(the fans) for feeling that way."
