Sekhukhune United coach Brandon Truter has clarified his comments about considering his future at the club.
Truter told the media in Polokwane after their 1-0 loss to Golden Arrows that he was considering his future. It was not clear what prompted the comments at the time but the former AmaZulu coach did not hold back his frustrations.
“This is what I am thinking at the moment. I am really considering my future because we need a conducive environment for the team to grow. At this moment I am not the happiest and I am a bit emotionally charged and I think that is [the end of] my interview guys at the moment,” said Truter last Thursday.
Truter was in the dugout when Sekhukhune played to a 0-0 draw against Polokwane City at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday.
BRANDON TRUTER REFLECTS ON HIS SURPRISE COMMENTS
“I am still here, yes I am still here,” he told journalists.
“Look yeah it was a bit emotional, like I said, you understand? But we have to understand that all coaches go through that, what I said,” said Truter reflecting on Thursday’s remarks.
“All coaches go through it, it’s just that I voiced it, some coaches don’t speak about it. We get challenged, we get dissected, we get so many opinions. So yeah, it’s just something that I voiced so it’s nothing to worry about.”
TOUGH CAF ASSIGNMENT AHEAD FOR SEKHUKHUNE UNITED
Truter has also reacted to the CAF Confederation Cup draw, which sees them in Group D alongside Berkane [Morocco], Noirs [Congo] and Stade Malien [Mali].
“Brazzaville Congo, yeah it’s a tough one. It’s teams that have been there, yes we have a trip to Mali as well and a trip to Morocco. So it’s a lot of travelling, just going to DRC last week took a lot out of us. So we have to balance it. Our squad is not the biggest, the suspensions and the injuries as well. So we have to manage it and pick our battles very carefully.”
