Eibar Coach Praises Thembi Kgatlana’s Consistent Efforts

by | Feb 18, 2021

Banyana Banyana international footballer, Thembi Kgatlana, has received praises from SD Eibar head coach, Ike Dorronsoro, for her continuous outstanding performances.

Kgatlana scored her ninth goal in 18 appearances in a 2-1 defeat against Granadilla Tenerife on Saturday, 13 February 2021.

The 24-year-old’s consistent performances have placed her as a pivotal player in the team.

“She [Thembi Kgatlana] is the benchmark player for us,” said Dorronsoro,

“There’s a lot of talk about her and I think that’s good for both her and the team. She is a benchmark player not only because of the goals she scores.

“She is a player who is not selfish, who squeezes, who works a lot without the ball.”

Kgatlana will hope to continue her impressive form in front of goal when Eibar take on Levante in their next fixture after the international break on 7 March.
