Speaking to the club’s website, TS Galaxy captain and goalkeeper, Ludwe Mpakumpaku said the club was punching above their weight and are remain hungry for success. Mpakumpaku said they were not worried about facing anyone on the continent as they were a highly determined club with a young squad that is eager to do well.
“So far we have done well in the Confederations Cup. We have surprised a lot of people I don’t think there is a team we want to avoid because we are confident in our style of play. Any team that we face will be given a run for their money because we are a confident and very hard-working club” said Mpakumpaku.
The Rockets will not be in action this weekend due to the FIFA break but resume their domestic fixtures on Wednesday, 16 October against Moroka Swallows in a Glad Africa Championship encounter at Dobsonville Stadium.
