Chiefs Jet Out To Botswana
Kaizer Chiefs Flew Out To Botswana Last Night
Kaizer Chiefs jetted out for Botswana last night ahead of this weekend’s friendly encounter against Township Rollers prior to the Carling Black Label Cup.
The Amakhosi take on their bitter rivals, Orlando Pirates, at FNB Stadium next weekend as their main warm-up game for the 2017/18 Absa Premiership season, however, they’re putting in the work beforehand too.
Steve Komphela’s side took a night flight to Francistown in Botswana last night to face Rollers on Saturday, with the Glamour Boys set to face Popa Popa on Saturday afternoon.
The game will be played at Francistown Stadium at 15h30, with Komphela still looking to solidify his starting XI for the upcoming season, and he is likely to give another run out to some of the club’s newest recruits.
Imminent arrival, Jonatan Philippe, touched down in South Africa this week ahead of an assessment at the club, however, did not travel with the team, and it is thought that some Chiefs players such as Joseph Molangoane, Brilliant Khuzwayo and Philani Zulu were also left behind due to passport issues, although that has not been confirmed.
Chiefs are set to get their season underway against Bloemfontein Celtic next month according to a provisional set of fixtures, and Komphela will be eager to figure out his best XI before that game arrives.
