We have a plan to combat Shalulile – Da Gama
“You’ve got to plan for Peter Shalulile. He proved last season that he is the best. He single handedly won games for Mamelodi Sundowns, scoring in 1-0 and 2-0 wins.” TS Galaxy head coach Owen Da Gama said.
“Sundowns are the type of team that once they score the first goal, it motivates them and it gives them so much encouragement and it is not easy to come back against them. We understand his qualities and whether we can stop him or not, it is a different question but we will certainly give it our best shot and we will work very hard. From a tactical perspective, we will need to get this one right.
“I’ve got a serious selection problem of my own with the strikers because any two of them can play – unfortunately Kwem had a bit of an injury last week but he is back now. The new players have got to find their feet, they need to understand how we play and we have to understand how best to utilise their strengths in the team. It is all a process but it is a very nice headache to have against Mamelodi Sundowns.”
