We got rid of lazy players - Sead Ramovic

TS Galaxy coach Sead Ramovic has attributed their form this season to the work ethic within the group, insisting “lazy” players were offloaded.

The Rockets beat SuperSport United 1-0 at the weekend to climb up to fifth place and are eyeing a Top 8 finish in the DStv Premiership.

Ramovic revealed the secret behind what many will view as a successful campaign.

"The drive is that my team, they got this kind of winning mentality now in the group. We got a lot of players in our group that has this great attitude, character, that want to improve, that want to win and we sorted out lazy players, that's the truth," Ramovic said.

Despite owner Tim Sukazi selling some of their best assets to Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs, the Serbian mentor believes they’ve made some big strides even with the reshuffle.

Ramovic argues that included getting rid of the bad apples.

"We had a couple of them, that maybe start to complain to the media but that's the truth. We don't have the time and I don't have the time because we don't speak the same language with lazy people. I'm not worried about it," he added.

Galaxy also reached the final of the Carling Black Label Cup in December, losing on penalties to Stellenbosch FC and will face Chippa United in the quarterfinals of the Nedbank Cup on Sunday.

The coach expects this run of good results to help them see out the remaining nine league matches.

"And this is the secret, hard work always beats talent, hard work beats a lot of things and this is the truth, nothing else. We train hard, we prepare ourselves, we are 24 hours preparing for everything just to make our dream come true and this is the truth."
