Morena Ramoreboli hails CAF CL impact on Jwaneng Galaxy

SA’s very own Morena Ramoreboli says their participation in the CAF Champions League this season helped Jwaneng Galaxy in edging closer to another league title.

The 43-year-old coach is five matches away from defending the Botswana Premier League with Galaxy currently five points clear at the summit.

Ramoreboli hailed the impact of their involvement in the continental competition, where they were eliminated in the group stages.

"It's a very, very competitive league but I think, to be honest the experience and the knowledge we gained during the CAF Champions League games has helped us a lot because we have always been able to come back, we have always been trying to be a better team in terms of our performance," Ramoreboli said.

Galaxy finished bottom of the table below group winners ASEC Mimosas, Simba and Wydad Casablanca after six matches and securing the Botswana Premier League will guarantee Galaxy return to rub shoulders with the best on the continent.

Ramoreboli insists this is the only way to improve the squad.

"Whatever we are going through, it's what Mamelodi Sundowns maybe Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates have gone through. You need to be a regular competitor in this tournament or in the CAF Champions League for you to do well. You don't participate twice and expect to perform like people who have been there before. The Simbas of this world, a Yanga, they've been through whatever that we've been through so the experience you're gaining in this CAF Champions League is so important," he added.
