Marques Eyes NFD Title
Santos Head Coach Zeka Marques has outlined his intentions for the season ahead following his first session in charge of the People's Team. The former Black Leopards and Moroka Swallows coach, who was unveiled to the players last Thursday, spent the morning putting his new squad through their paces, this after running the rule over the players during an extended session on Saturday morning. Speaking to thepeoplesteam.co.za after training on Monday, Marques said he had settled in well to Cape Town life, despite the freezing weather conditions, and is looking forward to putting his season plans in place. He said: "The settling down has been made very easy through the Chairman, his family and his wife, Malika, who have all helped make the transition easy. "They have been there for me since I have arrived." He added: "Working with the players has been easy as well; and with the technical staff. Keith (America) and Ayyoob (Gester) know the environment so they have also been invaluable in helping me settle so quickly." The 53-year-old continued: "I have been pleasantly surprised with the quality in the squad. I think the solutions are to be found within the club, and we can put a nice team together with the players already in the system." Santos have already played a number of friendly matches but Marques says they will continue to play pre-season games as he works towards narrowing down his side. "We play a few more friendly games that will give me a good chance to assess the players. If we feel we are short in a few areas we will still have enough time to go out and look. But we�ve got 34 players and some of them are very versatile." Outlining his plans for the upcoming National First Division season, the new man at the help explained: "We are here to win the league, and that is our main objective. "But we still need to sit down and discuss what else we can focus on. The Nedbank Cup is another avenue for us to focus on. We�ve got to be open-minded and there is no reason why we cant compete for the Nedbank Cup. "My philosophy is about possession, about intensity, and aggression while trying to score goals and playing entertaining, good football. "Creating a vision is important, with the right team dynamics and the right chemistry "If we get that right then we could end up surprising a few people this season." By Trevor Kramer

Marques: Belief is key
Santos Football Club Head Coach Zeca Marques says a winning mentality will be key to his side's promotion hopes and goals this season. The People's Team boss, who officially takes up his new post at the club on Monday, was introduced to the players and Santos staff on Thursday morning, where he outlined his vision for the upcoming campaign. Crucial to the former Black Leopards coach's plans will be to install an unshakable belief in the hearts and minds of his players. After being presented by club Chairman Mr Allie, Mr Marques said: "It is a great privilege for me to be a part of this club. It is a club I have admired for many years." He added: "I have come here with a vision but it can't be my vision alone, and our success depends on each other. "Together, just looking around this room at the players in this squad, we can make a difference. "I am very excited to begin working with you and with my technical team." Marques added: "Nothing would give me greater pleasure than taking this club back to the PSL. "And it is my job to install the belief and confidence in the players that it is possible."

Marques is new Santos Head Coach
Santos Football Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Zeca Marques as the club's new Head Coach.
