NGEZI Platinum coach Cosmas “Tsano” Zulu has lauded the team work at the club as the hallmark of the success story that the club has achieved in its short time in the Premier League.
Buoyed by solid sponsorship from platinum miners Mimosa Mining Company, Ngezi Platinum are one of the best paying teams in the land and have the financial muscle to sign top players on the local market.
Zulu says true to the saying that money doesn’t buy success, at Ngezi they, instead, believe in team work to achieve their targets.
The veteran coach is an assistant to Head Coach Rodwell Dhlakama.
“We don’t believe in individual glory but working as a team to achieve our targets. Like any other ambitious club, we strive to be one of the best in the country, but that kind of success does not come from chasing individual grandeur.
“I see myself as part of a machine that needs collective efforts of other parts to function effectively,” said Zulu.
Known as Tsano in football circles, Zulu left Bulawayo with Dutch coach Erol Akbay to join Ngezi Platinum in December 2018.
The two had worked together at Highlanders for two seasons.
One year later Akbay was fired at Ngezi Platinum, but Zulu remained at the club.
How has the change of scenery from Bulawayo to Mhondoro affected him a as a coach?
“Nothing has changed really; I still conduct myself in a professional manner on and off the pitch. A coach must be able to work with anyone, in any part of the country and for any club without hindrances as long as he has integrity and respect for authority,” he said.Tur ma quunt, quaspic tecum
