BAROKA FC’s young midfielder, Bennet Bobete, is impressed with the new techniques and tactical awareness brought about by their new coach Kgoloko Thobejane at training this week.

Thobejane was elevated back to head coaching role on Sunday, replacing Thoka Matsemela as Bakgaga mentor, while the latter was demoted to lead the club’s DStv Diski Challenge team.

After spending a few days with Thobejane at training, Bobete has seen a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel with the Limpopo-based outfit coach at helm.

“Thobejane is a good coach and everyone is happy to have him in the team,” said the 20-year-old star.

“He (Thobejane) knows what is expected from him and the good thing is that he has coached in the Premiership before.

“I have been impressed with his tactics at training. I see the team doing well in our coming games and moving from the position we are in.

“He is friendly and brings along lots of vibe at training. I am sure his record speaks for him.

“He given us great knowledge of football.”

The Ga-Mothibe born player was promoted to the first team this season and wasted no time to impress.

Bobete, under Matsemela, played five league matches for Baroka and netted one goal.

“This is my first season in the PSL and I can say I am still learning,” he explained.

“I’ve learnt lot from coach Matsemela and now is the time to learn from Thobejane.”

Baroka travel to Durban to face Golden Arrows in a must-win league encounter for Thobejane and his lads at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Sunday (3.30pm).
