Butler hits ground running
Platinum Stars coach Peter Butler took charge of his first training session at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Campus on Tuesday afternoon.

Before the training session, Butler met with the players to explain his way of doing things.

“I have seen quite a few of games and I have watched your DVDs. There are a lot of good players in this team. There’s a lot of potential. I am looking forward to working with you and most importantly realizing the potential of some of the younger players bringing them into the fold,” Butler told the players.

Butler is a firm believer in mixing experience and youth. He promised to give youngsters a chance to prove themselves next season. The former Botswana national team coach says he will make sure that players improve.

“I have worked in Botswana, where we built a strong solid young team. I gave a lot of youngsters a chance. I believe in clean slate. I believe in giving everybody an opportunity to show what they can do. I believe in discipline. My philosophy is that if you play on Saturday, you do everything right from Monday to Friday and Saturday takes care of itself. In general I find that works. I believe that individually, collectively, we can all go forward and we can all be successful. I am not going to promise you anything I can’t deliver. In training, we will always strive for quality and not quantity,” said Butler.
Dikwena chairman Cliff Ramoroa expressed confidence in Butler and what he has in store for the club.

“It was the coach’s first day. He was introduced to all staff including the players. The coach is looking to improve the team and he has their cooperation. I believe that this will be a good season. It will be another level for the team. We are aiming to go to another level. The players are excited with the coach and they believe they will go to another level,” said Ramoroa.

Dikwena\'s next assignment is a CAF Confederation Cup encounter against Mbabane Swallows at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace this coming Saturday.
