JOHANNESBURG – Owen da Gama credits team spirit and everyone pulling their weight for Highlands Park’s early success that sees them 90 minutes away from being MTN8 champions.
The Lions of the North will take on SuperSport United in the MTN8 final on October 5 at Orlando Stadium.
“First and foremost, we have athletes in our team,” Da Gama said. “I hear people on the radio and print media saying that we run and we are the fittest team. That’s just one piece of the puzzle.
All the credit must go to our biokineticist (Simone Conley), everything is scientifically done. She must get the credit. The analysts and the coaches must also get the credit. We work hard. We really work hard.
Yes, there are coaches who more intelligent than us and coaches who are more handsome than us, I don’t believe that but anyhow, at the end of the day there are few coaches who work as hard as we do. The hard work is coming through, we work as a collective.”
