Kaizer Chiefs Cach Ernst Middendorp says that his team is not playing to their full potential yet. E believes that there is much room for improvement here. Kaizer Chiefs are currently on the top of the PSL log table and through to the Telkom Knockout quarter-finals. The Glamour Boys will play Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday, having a psychological advantage over them after beating the Brazillian 4-2 in the Shell Helix Ultra Cup two weeks ago.
However, Middendorp is still doing everything to keep his players’ feet on the ground so they don’t get too confident. He is above everything, taking a balanced perspective on things. “From my side, in particular, you will never see me running with the Shell Helix Cup through the stadium and celebrating or anything like it. You will never see me disappointed or showing whatever emotion when we are not getting the results. I always do my best to take things balanced.” – Middendorp said.
Middendorp is not keen to showing emotion
“At this moment, everything is about progress and performance. I want to do my best to repeat it because we still have minutes and periods in the game where we have to push ourselves and be better. We have to be more professional, show a real performance where you can say that you are dominating the entire field. There is still a lot of work for us that needs to be done. I think it doesn’t depend on the Telkom Cup or on the Premier Soccer League (PSL or Absa Premiership), Macufe Cup or Shell Helix Cup. These are just games we have to play and in each and every one of them, you have to win and be successful. Especially with a team like Kaizer Chiefs, you have to do your best even while playing against Moroka Swallows on the training ground here.”
“If you don’t win, you are already in a messy situation. That is the mentality and attitude we are trying to pump into the mindset of every single person in the team and brand in particular since we started the pre-season on 25th June.” Hurry up and download betway app south africa so you can place your bet before the match.
