“We knew that from watching videos and getting data that the team has improved a lot within the three weeks,” Mokwena told his club’s official website.

“It is not always easy to give a team your footprint as a coach particularly within the short period of time that he has done it.

“We knew we had to play very strong, when we didn’t have possession of the ball we had to work a little bit to keep compact and deny them spaces behind us. Maybe at certain moments in the first half, we dropped off too early.

“We were better in the second half where we induced a little bit of pressure and pressed a bit higher. We are satisfied with the result.”
