Arrows get Brazilian trainer


Recently Arrows’ boss Mato Madlala pointed out that in an interview with that the club was looking at improving some sections in the club, including the physical conditioning of the players.

“It is important to bring in a late substitute because he makes a meaningful impact,” Manqoba Mngqithi chuckles.

Captain Kagiso Dikgacoi was full of praise of Parreira’s sessions.

“As you saw everyone is enjoying the sessions. You know at this time of the season, the legs can be heavy but Parreira’s training has helped ease tension a little,” he said.

The Brazilian is a cousin to departed Bafana Bafana coach Carlos Alberto Parreira. He has also worked for AmaZulu, being roped in by countryman Prof Julio Caesar Leal while he was coaching Usuthu last season.

Meanwhile, Mngqithi is optimistic of collecting maximum points in their Jomo Cosmos game in Orkney on Sunday. However, he discloses that he will have to do without suspended Musa Bilankulu and injured Papi Zothwane.
