Mugeyi joins WSU coaching staff

BY SUPPLIED - JULY 13, 2015

William Mugeyi, a name synonymous with Eastern Cape soccer, has agreed to share his vast experience with the WSU coaching staff as technical advisor during this season’s Varsity Football challenge.

The former Zimbabwean international and Bush Bucks left back’s tactical and technical expertise could prove significant as WSU aims to cause a few upsets on their way to a “fairy-tale” season – qualifying for the knockouts.

“I trust that I can contribute to developing and strengthening the team in terms of the other crucial aspects of the game that require brains rather than brawn. My part will be largely to impart the tactical and technical facets to the team’s game,” says Mugeyi.

WSU head coach Alfred Kuchou welcomed the news, adding that Mugeyi would help bolster the squad in terms of confidence and game awareness.

He said the players would also feed off the professionalism and intensity he brings.

“William’s addition further signifies to the players to how serious a task we have ahead of us, and how important a tournament this is. We won’t be there to make up numbers – we will be competing,” says Kuchou.

Mugeyi will be watched with keen interest as WSU took on his much-beloved Bush Bucks in two friendly games on Friday 10 July last week as part of the institution’s training camp.

This is where he started laying the pieces to a foundation built on a footballing astuteness that will see the team dismantle any opposition.

“It was the perfect time for me to assess the team with just a few days to go before they take to the field in their opener,” says Mugeyi.

WSU opens its account by hosting Northwest University (NWU) at the Mthatha Campus on Monday 20 July.
