“Here we have 23 players and you need to understand the strengths and weaknesses of each one of them. And when you play it, you have to remind her of her strengths and try as hard as you can not to remind her of her weaknesses.
“Tshego can score goals at any time. He might not give you what Victor Letswalo will give you in sprinting into spaces and all that, like Iqraam Rayners [also can]but laughter is the finale.
“You need to play in areas where Tshego can score goals. And again, we have to be honest, he was a bit rusty because at club level he wasn’t getting enough minutes.
“At Sekhukhune, he didn’t play much, so he needed people who would say to him, ‘Tshego, you’re good when you do this, go do this.’ If you checked when he came in, we said go and stay between the outfielders.
“Any ball that went down there, he was available to take it and score.”
