Fransman getting a feel for things
After spending the last four years in Israel with Maccabi Netanya and Hapoel Tel Aviv, the former Moroka Swallows player has returned to South Africa in order to replace the departed Morgan Gould.
“So far so good. We are three days in and things are going well, but I’m not going to get a real feel for the team and the conditions until the season actually kicks-off,” said Fransman on Metro FM on Wednesday night.
The pressure for Fransman to perform will be there from the fans, but he is looking forward to working under the tutelage of Gavin Hunt again, and admits he is a coach that does not accept second best and neither does the team.
“He (Hunt) is a familiar coach to me from Swallows and it is good to be working with Gavin again.
“We an ambitious squad – I have picked that up in three days. I think we going to have a real good go at it this year.
“Gavin is really enthusiastic and he wants to win everything. He made it clear we play to win,” concluded the 29-year-old.
