Terrence Dzvukamanja has warned his former club Ngezi Platinum Stars that they need to improve in some departments for them to be able to challenge honour in the 2019 season.

The forward now plays for Bidvest Wits in South Africa and was on target during a practice match played on Tuesday against Ngezi.

Dzvukamanja told NewsDay after the game that he has picked areas his former team will need to improve to achieve league success.

“They need to work on defending set-pieces; they don’t pay much attention to their blind side. They only concentrate on where the ball is coming from, so they should work on that aspect,” Dzvukamanja warned.

“Their attack is also not very effective. They enjoy passing the ball around unnecessarily. They should try to score goals always, and be result oriented. They can try the one direct route, three passes and score a goal.

“It could be better that way. It’s useless to make 54 passes and then you conceded.”

Ngezi finished second last season and will be hoping to do better in this coming campaign under new coach Erol Akbay.
