Arubi: Gaborone United is a good side

Washington Arubi, believes that Supersport United experience will come handy when they take on Gaborone United in the CAF Confederation Cup.

The first leg of the preliminary round will take place at the Botswana National Stadium on Saturday evening.

“Remember we have an experienced technical team, we have a great coach in Gavin Hunt and also Andre Arendse who has played crucial games for Bafana Bafana away from home,” the player told Supersport United website.

“So I cannot pre-empt what advice we have been getting from the technical team ahead of a crucial encounter but I am sure it’s definitely something that is helpful towards the big game on Saturday night.

“Playing away from home alone is not easy, away from your fans, the travelling and change of climate is definitely not in our advantage.

“So, having to adapt to the environment can be a challenge as well especially for new players who don’t have experience to play on the continent.

“But this is where some of us who have the experience come in handy to steady the ship and make sure we sail to safety and come out with a positive result.

The veteran goalkeeper joined Supersport United at the beginning of the season from Marumo Gallants.

The Zimbabwean international shared his thoughts on what Supersport United need to do in order to eliminate their opponents.

“What I know about Gaborone United, if I’m not mistaken they were runners-up in their league last season, so it means they are a good side. “We must treat this one like a Cup final and fight for a positive result because coming second in a 16-team league is not an easy one.”
