NGEZI Platinum coach Erol Akbay says players are still learning his way of football as countdown to the 2019 season continues.
Akbay, who recently joined the Mhondoro-Ngezi based side, believes the team can do better.
The Dutchman is known for possession football, as seen during his spell with Highlanders
Ngezi are currently touring South Africa as part of their pre-season campaign as they seek to dethrone FC Platinum.
“We can be much better, few things that already there, but what we have to do is do be better in approach, how we have to attack and how we have to defend.
“When you have to defend they are still missing something and when you have to attack you see that all the time wrong players at the wrong time or wrong moments, wrong sides,” Akbay said recently after playing Bidvest Wits.
The transfer period has seen high profile exits at the Baobab with the likes of Godknows Murwira, Walter Mukanga and Clive Augusto all ditching the club.
Akbay still has to come up with a good team as he said he won’t blame himself for not giving players a chance.
“I give everyone enough game time to prove themselves, to surprise me so that I don’t blame myself.
“The tactical part is not coming up for few weeks now,” he said.
Players such as Liberty Chakoroma, Donald Teguru, Frank Mukarati and Xolisani Moyo are expected to form the backbone of Akbay’s team.
The gaffer has already signaled his intentions to win the league, which is expected of him as he hopes to hit the ground running and go all the way.
