SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo has revealed that he has enjoyed the fortune of working under a supportive CEO.
Tembo was appointed SuperSport head coach in 2018 before later winning the MTN8 Cup as well as keeping the club a top six side.
“I am no different to any other coach. In this industry, it is a job that is results-based,” the 50-year-old Tembo told the club’s media.
“I am lucky to have someone like our CEO, Stanley Matthews, who has groomed me from the beginning, even when I was playing. I have gone through all the processes of being a coach.
“I have coached the U17s, U19s, I have been an assistant coach, and coached the reserve team. It has been a huge journey for me and I still take it one day at a time. That is key for my development.
With the club surprisingly spending less despite the big financial muscle it enjoys, Tembo and his team have enjoyed success with a young squad.
“We are taking a different direction where we need to give an opportunity to our young players coming from the development and MDC [MultiChoice Diski Challenge], but still need to be competitive.
“As much as I have been given time to build a team, we are also expected to deliver, that is the nature of the job,” he added.
SuperSport will restart post lockdown football against Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday.
