“We have to give the supporters hope by producing better performance. It is simple,” – Jose Riveiro said as quoted by Sowetan.

“We are not finding the goal as easy as we would like and that’s a handicap. But I’m busy with the problems that we have to make sure that we solve them.

“If we continue having all problems, then we are doing something wrong. I’m busy trying to help my players to win games and score more goals, but I’m not concerned.”
