“You promised to win the league and make a continental ticket last season, but you failed to accomplish it despite our motivation for you,” he told the players.
“We must lift a trophy this season because we are tired of staying at home and not travelling to Mozambique or Tunisia and you know what this means.
“No more Father Christmas because we have been treating you fine since August 2011, when we came on board but you have not repaid us and we are not happy about this.
“Though you are doing well, that is not enough, you have to turn around the club by ensuring we play international football next year. We have the players to do this.”
He challenged the players further, “Win us continental ticket either through the Federations Cup or the league and see what we will do for you, that is what we expect from you. If you finish well, we will do what will surprise you, what has never happened in the history of the team, you will receive. I promise you that.”
