Tim Sukazi: ‘I said it even before we kicked the ball’ this season

TS Galaxy chairman Tim Sukazi has recalled his remarks about the club’s targets this season, saying they have already accomplished them before the final match-day.

The Rockets have been a revelation this year. They reached the Carling Knockout Cup final, ultimately falling to Stellenbosch FC on penalties. 

This marked their first cup final since their 2019 Nedbank Cup victory over Kaizer Chiefs.

At the season’s outset, Sukazi declared a “compulsory” goal of finishing within the top eight, aiming to improve upon their 10th-place finish last season. 

With three games remaining, they’ve already secured a top-eight spot and currently sit fifth with 40 points after 27 games.

He expressed pride in the players, technical team and all the staff of the club.


“At the start of the season, I was asked as to what are our aims for the season were,” Sukazi told FARPost.

“My answer was that we have been a club that has been improving year in and year out. And last season seeing that we had ended in position 10, I said finishing [within the top eight] is compulsory for us.

“I said it before we kicked the ball at the start of the season.

“So, you and I now know that has been achieved with three games to go. So I think we have now achieved our goals.

“It is one thing to talk about goals when they have happened but these are the goals I had spoken about them.

“I’m personally proud of the work by the players, by the technical team, administration staff and everyone at the club.

“Had it not been for their application and work towards the goals, we wouldn’t be here.”

TS Galaxy’s next task is a league match against Orlando Pirates on Saturday, 18 May at Mbombela Stadium. The match is scheduled to kick off at 3 pm.
