Thanda coach, Roger Palmgren tells snl24.com/kickoff that he has not been impressed by the level of commitment shown by Ngobese at training, culminating in his omission from the team that played against Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus Stadium in Pretoria yesterday.
“I have not been impressed with Scara’s commitment hence he was not part of the team that played against Sundowns. He is failing to run at training. Serge (Djiehoua) had the same problem at training, showing laziness in running. I put him aside in the last few games and told him to work hard.
“He has come on well and shown commitment and that’s why he played yesterday. This is the same thing I expect from Scara. He has to show me commitment at training before I consider him for selection.”
Meanwhile Palmgren, despite seeing his side suffer two defeats in less than a week is confident that his team will not be relegated at the end of the season.
“Sundowns were better than us, especially in the first half, but we came back a little bit stronger in the second half. They were lucky to be saved by the keeper on three occasions. Despite the results today, I am still optimistic that we will not go down,” Palmgren says.
