Kwem targets trophies at TS Galaxy

TS Galaxy’s new signing Augustine Kwem is not worried about individual accolades.

The Nigerian joined the Rockets last month from Chippa United on a two-year deal.

Kwem doesn’t want to put too much pressure over his shoulder.

“It is always about the badge that you play for. It is all about the brand that you work for. The target is to help the team finish as high as possible on the log and get the cup under our name. Any other accolades or individual achievement comes secondary for me. The primary aim is to finish as high as possible,” Kwem explained.

He has been in pre-season with the club for the past four weeks.

“The adaptation is nice, especially coming from the chairman (Tim Sukazi) and the players. I feel warmly welcomed here,” he added.

The club announced the signing of Kwem towards the end of last season.

“The chairman is a nice person at first. The club has quality players and a solid technical team that is made up of coach Owen Da Gama and Shaun Bartlett, the legend of the game. The infrastructure is good. There are many positives that made me join TS Galaxy,” Kwem stated.

His season overlapped as he was involved in the Play-offs with Chippa.

“I didn’t get as much rest as I would have liked to because I was busy with the play-offs. It is my job, I can’t give excuses based on rest. I had an opportunity to visit my family back in Nigeria. Even if it was for five days, it means a lot. For now, it is back to work, there’s no time for rest,” Kwem detailed.

The Rockets will lock horns against Kaizer Chiefs in the opening game of the season at the splendid Mbombela Stadium on the

“I’ll give my all in the field of play. We hope to see the supporters back cheering us at the stadium. When we score, we want to celebrate in front. We just hope that this phase of Covid-19 will pass. We will give them a good show.” Kwem concluded.
