Mkhatshwa – Let my work do the talking for me

In a game where everyone jumps at an opportunity to hog the spotlight, it is surprising to come across someone like Mbombela United coach, Vusi Mkhatshwa.

The soft spoken Mkhatshwa has taken the unfancied Nelspruit based team to third in the NFD standings and his team is currently one of the favourites for the championship in South Africa’s second tier league.

Speaking to The Citizen yesterday, Mkhatshwa said he is not one for talking, but believes his work should do the talking for him.

“I am fairly new in this division (the NFD) and not many people know me, so I would rather my work speak for me not the other way around. I do not want to be in newspapers talking about football when people have no proof of my work,” said Mkhatshwa.

Mbombela had a slow start to their campaign losing two and drawing one in their first three games of the season, but have since turned it around and climbed up to third.

Mkhatshwa will tomorrow guide his charges against a resurgent Vasco Da Gama with the hope of continuing on their impressive from the first round. Looking at Da Gama’s league position, one would predict an easy outing for the Nelspruit lads, but Cape Town team have woken form their slumber and are slowly climbing up the log and could be a tricky opponent for Mkhatshwa’s men.
