Bloemfontein Celtic willing to sacrifice for Nedbank Cup this season
Siwelele may have financial issues but that does not ruin their chances of lifting the trophy in the few following weeks.
Bloemfontein Celtic will face Baroka FC in the semi-finals next week as the season recommences. Celtic will be sharing Tucks Stadium with Stellenbosch FC as their home turf.
According to Kick-off’s Kumbulani Konco, Celtic’s executive officer said they prefer not to be too excited about their opening match as they keep preparing themselves on the training pitch.
He also stated that Lehlohonolo Seema left for Chippa United, so Phunya Sele Sele is working with new coaches which is John Maduka and Abram Nteo.
Konco highlighted that their focus is on doing whatever it takes to win the first game and the rest will follow. “Nedbank is a tough competition and we wouldn’t want to talk about it now” Konco added.
Konco said the players are happy about getting back to the pitch they have been itching to, “we are very excited”. Adding Konco.
Celtic will be sharing the pitch in Tshwane as their home venue but Konco seemed unbothered about that, he says it does not matter where are they are playing, sacrifices must be made.
“We’ve played there before we won, drew and lost. We have done everything there. We will have to be comfortable with the situation” said Konco.
