Bloemfontein Celtic coach Veselin Jelusic hopes to add his name into the club’s record books by delivering a piece of silverware when his side lock horns with Bidvest Wits at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Saturday.
The Serbian wants to become only the fourth coach to guide the club to their fourth TKO title after Dave Roberts, Paul Dolezar and Clinton Larsen.
“Of course, it is my ambition to win this cup to repeat the feat of my predecessors. I’m counting on the high motivation of the players to help win this cup,” Jelusic told the media.
The experience gained en-route to the final will stand them in good stead given that they have shown the ability to grind out results so far in the competition.
“Cup experience in some players will be very important. Our team knows how to achieve good results so far,” Jelusic said.
Having exceeded expectations following his surprise appointment at the start of the campaign, Jelusic revealed that everyone associated with the club is working hard to ensure that Celtic beat the Students to the TKO title.
“It’s a new one in South Africa for me, but not an entirely new challenge regarding competition. Altogether, the players, technical team and management, as well as our supports, are working together to achieve this cup,” Jelusic said.
