“The season wasn’t good, and it is quite embarrassing to be honest, wherever we go, people are laughing at us but we take the criticism and turn it in to positives for next season so that we can work hard,” Katsande said.
“Sometimes criticism can make you a better person and I am sure we are going to sharpen our swords and come back stronger and try to avoid being a laughing stock.
“This is more than an easy game, we are coming back from (the) off-season and we need to check our fitness and combinations and you know the history of this two clubs, there is no friendly match, it is always competitive, we always treat it with respect and give our best,” he added.
