Katza happy with SuperSport’s display

SuperSport United skipper Ricardo Katza was very happy with his team’s performance in their 3-1 routing of Platinum Stars in an Absa Premiership match on Wednesday night.

”We could have scored more,” Katza said. ”We enjoyed the game and our confidence grew as we scored.”

Mozambique international Elias Pelembe, Morgan Gould and South Africa international Katlego Mashego scored for the defending league champs, while Luis Renteria netted for the hosts.

”The game started off slowly as we tried to suss them out. They made a few mistakes in defence and we punished them,” he said. ”But I think we deserved the win as we played to the best of our ability and got them on a bad night.”

Stars skipper Stanley Kgatla echoed his counterpart’s sentiments.

”Against a team like SuperSport you cannot afford to make mistakes,” the visibly upset Kgatla said, ”but we did and they scored.

”I can’t blame any of the players for not performing as we were all not up to the challenge. I cannot say why though, it was just not our night. At training everything was good, but tonight [Wednesday] we just could not apply ourselves.”

SuperSport are on top of the log together with Thanda Royal Zulu. Both teams have six points from their two outings. — Sapa
