Bidvest Wits defender Thomas Sweswe has told Goal that they are happy to have finished the season inside the top four teams, and he believes that the future of Wits is looking great ahead of the 2013/2014 season.
Sweswe wants his teammates to improve on their last season performance, and he understands that setting attainable goals is important.
“I think we did well as a team. We wanted to finish in the top four and we achieved that. I would like to believe that we have laid a good foundation for us going into the new season,” Sweswe told Goal.

The Zimbabwean defender believes that Wits can go as far as winning the PSL title next season, as he mentioned the importance of working under Gavin Hunt.
He also complimented the Bidvest Wits management for signing Hunt from SuperSport United, and he believes that the three-time PSL winning coach will succeed at the Johannesburg-based club.
“After our last season’s performance, I think we can go as far as lifting the PSL title next season. We have a new coach (Gavin Hunt) and the management has done a great job by signing him from SuperSport United. The foundation is there and we just have to build on it,” he said.

Sweswe is not fazed by the prospect of working under the new coach having previously worked with Antonio Habas and Clive Barker since he joined Wits, and he promised that he will quickly adapt to Gavin Hunt’s style of play.
“As a professional player, I would need to adapt quickly. Having coach Hunt in the team is a blessing, because he has achieved a lot with SuperSport. He certainly brings that winning mentality in the team,” said Sweswe.
Like any other professional player, Sweswe has set himself targets ahead of the new season, and one of them is to play as many games as possible.
“I would like to play as many games as last season, and of course to help my team win trophies, because we haven’t been doing well in cup competitions,” added Sweswe.
