Kaizer Chiefs Village once again opened the door ahead of their Nedbank Cup. They are waiting for their last 16 fixture this weekend against Highlands Park. The tickets are already sold out so if you are not one of the lucky ones to get it, you can still follow it via live stream on Saturday afternoon at 15:00 o’clock.
The major topic was their recent struggle in the Premier Soccer League title race and the cup. Coach Middendorp stated that the fuss which was made about their loss to Maritzburg United wasn’t made by their loyal fans. The fans see how far the team has gotten this season. The Golden Boys dropped down to four points lead after Mamelodi Sundowns managed to move into the second place.
Kaizer Chiefs are in the longest trophy drought
As Sundowns won the catch-up fixture against Bloemfontein Celtic on Wednesday, Chiefs got more reasons to worry. However, the German coach still insists that their current position is still something to be proud of. He said that regardless of whether they go all the way to claim the championship, his team is still a success considering their performance in the past few years.
The club still has a dark cloud over themselves as they are holding the worst trophy drought ever. For five seasons the team was slacking off and wasting their potential talent. The players are now thirsty to make a step closer to the title and hopefully, that is what we will see this weekend.
Ernst Middendorp is lucky to have a clean bill of health ahead of the following fixture. The only player that will sit this out is Joseph Molangoane.
