But he is unable to sit on the bench while he awaits his work permit.

Kopo says there is a massive difference brought by the former Zambia international striker and other staff members.

“Collins has been working with the attackers a lot. We gave him time to work with the strikers,” said Kopo.

“We have also brought in Mandla Mabena, it is the first time that he sits on the bench, also a legend for the club. Because we need to put our heads together, it’s not about me.

“Pretoria Caillies is way bigger than me so Collins has definitely contributed positively, unfortunately, he is not able to sit on the bench because his work permit is taking long,” he explained.

“Hence we have also brought in Mandla because sometimes in the heat of the game, my attention gets drawn to other things and you need to have a person that’s paying attention to the game.

“But I think in the last three games also, compliments to myself, I have been really calm. I have been trying to be calm, so Collins is doing good and we hope that Mandla also can contribute positively to the team.”

“Pretoria Callies is much bigger than us, it needs everybody at this club. e saw great unity last week when we played Hungry Lions despite the draw.

“What I saw was the Pretoria Callies that is United and that is what we need going forward and I think once that runs into the players we will be able to sneak in a couple of positive results,” he concluded.
