Sead Ramovic switches attention to improving TS Galaxy’s league run

TS Galaxy’s DStv Premiership form deserves some attention, a fact coach Sead Ramovic has vowed to better in the coming days.

The Rockets are fresh from their Carling Knockout final defeat to Stellenbosch FC, but, even as their impressive run led them all the way to being among the last two cup teams standing, Galaxy’s league performances have been below par.

Ramovic, whose side are third from bottom on the log table, did not deny this when asked about the way forward.

"This is the dessert [Carling Knockout], but our main course should be the league, and this is where we have to do everything we can to reach our goal to be in the top eight spot," admitted Ramovic.

"And this goal is also not easy because you have fantastic teams in our league. We could make it easy for ourselves and tell you guys that our goal is to stay in the league.

"But I didn't come here to stay in the league; I came here to reach some goals, to get bigger and bigger and bigger, and you can only reach [that] if you put a lot of hard work, and have guys around you with a great attitude, and this is what we have.

"But it is a process and we are on the right track."

The Rockets will close off the year on 30 December by welcoming Chippa United to Mbombela Stadium, and a few days later the January transfer window opens. 

But Ramovic, who has consistently reminded the public that Galaxy sold seven players at the beginning of the season, said he was not thinking about any new additions. 

"We have a squad of 24 great guys and I don't think we have to invest so much in new guys because we will improve, we will reach our goal to be in a top eight spot again," he added.

"I believe in my squad, I like to give a lot of young guys a chance – I think we have six guys from our under-21 [DDC team] in our squad, and four players from the NFD [Motsepe Foundation Championship]."

Galaxy return to Durban on Saturday to face Golden Arrows – a team on a slippery slope following six straight losses under coach Mabhuti Khenyeza.
