“The coach has made it clear what he expects from us,” Troost-Ekong told Hive Live Extra.
“That’s the biggest thing. He also talks to the players. People see him as a serious person, but he speaks to the players and he keeps everyone in the loop about what he’s doing.
“If you’ve played well and yet are rotated, he gives you the heads up and that helps so there are no surprises. We have lots of competition and everyone is fighting to do well when they get the chance.”
