Isaacs hits the ground running as coach

Dominic Isaacs says he is satisfied with his first season as a head coach and plans to use the last six remaining games to make sure Cape Umoya United stay in the National First Division.

United were at the bottom of the table when the former Kaizer Chiefs defender took over from shareholder Roger De Sa in December, but has sinced moved up to 11th on the standings.

Isaacs’ contract with the Cape Town based side will finish at the end of the season, but there’s an option to renew.

“Yeah, it’s been okay. I’m enjoying it,” Isaacs tells

“It’s what I always wanted it to be, to be involved in the game after playing football for such a long time. I felt that I could offer a lot you know. It’s something that I wanted and I am striving on.

“I just built on the foundation that the previous coach has laid. It was a matter of them believing in themselves and then working a little bit hard, doing much more.

“Being good wasn’t good enough for me, I wanted more. As you can see the team has improved. I also need to give credit to the management and also my backroom staff, they’ve worked extremely hard.

Despite moving up the table, Isaacs knows that they cannot be complacent.
