“I think overall we managed to keep all our key players with us, it’s important to have continuity to not start from [scratch] this season and if we lose one or two players it’s part of the process.

“It’s normal. I’m happy to have worked with Terrence for one year and I’m wishing him all the best for the future [at SuperSport United]”
