"I Will Never Tolerate Unwillingness Or Even The Apathy Of Only One Player”, Botswana Giants Coach Rodolfo Zapata
Gaborone United coach, Rodolfo Zapata told Mmegi Sport that the club is facing some challenges but that does not stop them from aiming high.
He said the financial situation remains a headache for Botswana Giants. The Argentinian revealed that the side did not have proper pre-season training. “It is not going to be easy but I believe in my players. I am extremely confident that we can make a substantial contribution based on my past accomplishment with GU,” he said.
Zapata took charge when GU was 12th but managed to steer them to a fifth place finish. He said the intention is to walk away with the league and Mascom Top 8 honours.
"Rolo" Zapata said their goals are high but achievable. He said the challenges that the club is facing are a motivation. “The tougher the game, the more adverse the circumstances, the more excited I get. I love competing and testing my coaching skills and my passion for winning against others,” he said.
“I have to admit that in a team, there are some players who will not perform well. But I will never tolerate unwillingness, the lack of a positive attitude, the lack of interest, or even the apathy of only one player,” stressed Zapata.
