How cultivating a champion mentality has made Morena Ramoreboli’s job easy

Revered coach Morena Ramoreboli has highlighted how cultivating a champion mentality in his team has made his job easy at Jwaneng Galaxy.

The 42-year-old has been excelling in the Botswana Premier League, as he won the 2022/23 title.

Last week the revered coach, Morena Ramoreboli hogged the limelight after he stormed out of a CAF press conference. That was after a Moroccan journalist implied that Jwaneng Galaxy used black magic; ‘juju’ in their remarkable win over Wydad Casablanca.

Ramoreboli and his men shocked the Moroccan giants at home in a CAF Champions League Group B clash.

Thabang Sesinyi scored the priceless goal for the Jwaneng-based outfit, earning them the ‘giant slayer’ tag.

This, though was not the first time, they caused a major upset having eliminated Orlando Pirates from this edition in a heart-stopping encounter back in September.

They are set to host Simba SC of Tanzania on Saturday afternoon in what looks set to be a thriller. And Ramoreboli has highlighted how the champion mentality has helped him.

“It’s the Champions League, so we need to have a champion character and when we get character from your team, it’s very important to make sure they keep it. It’s what makes it easy,” said Ramoreboli.

“It is very important for you to do well. Despite the good tactics we had for the match [against Wydad Casablanca], the good preparation, mentally they were very strong.

“And we managed to get the very good result that needed. I hope we will keep this mentality in the next fixtures.”

On paper, Galaxy are easy to take as underdogs but on the field of play, they are holding their own against any team. 

In addition, Ramoreboli is a winner of the COSAFA Cup with the South African men’s national team; Bafana Bafaan as head coach.
