TS Galaxy president Tim Sukazi has explained why the club hired Owen Da Gama to be their head coach following the sacking of Dan Malesela.
“We are delighted in announcing Owen Da Gama as the Head Coach of TS Galaxy Football Club,” Sukazi told the club’s official website.
“Owen is a seasoned coach who has lots of experience in the local game. Most importantly, Owen has a good understanding of the bulk of our current squad after having worked with them at Highlands Park.
“As a club, we took the view that we would be best placed with a coach who has experience in the local game as the season is already on the run and there is no time to orientate a coach who has never coached in DStv Premiership.
“Given where we are in the season, we wanted someone who will hit the ground running from the onset. The fact that coach Owen has worked with most of our current crop of players gave him a notch. Unfortunately, there are not too many coaches out there who tick these two critical boxes.”
