Former Kaizer Chiefs striker, Mark Williams, feels that there is no way Amakhosi will throw away their title in the same fashion they did last season, claiming “it will be a miracle if so…”
The striker, who played for the club between 1996-97, sat down with Fan Park’s editor, Rossella Marrai, to discuss a number of topics that have taken place so far this season.
In his first topic of discussion, Williams touched on the final six games of the league campaign and believes that the title is destined to move to Naturena this year.
“You look at the teams now… Some are fighting to stay out of relegation, some are fighting for the top eight and obviously are hoping that Chiefs will lose and keep losing, so to put a little bit more pressure,” said Williams.
“You look back at last year, at the way they [Sundowns] won it [Absa Premiership], it was because of Kaizer Chiefs’ mistakes. I think they have learnt from that, but do as they may, Sundowns were the champions.
“I think it is all up to Kaizer Chiefs. I put my money on them at the beginning of the year… The way everyone was talking about that train that was moving – who was going to stop that train?
“You found that SuperSport was the first team to stop that train, but it is still there for Chiefs to win. I don’t see them losing it and I think they can win it comfortably.”
The 48-year-old concluded by saying a miracle will be needed for Sundowns to win the title two seasons in a row…
“Thursday’s game against AmaZulu were very important three points. They need to lose three games now and I don’t see them doing that. It will be a miracle if so…”
