Kaizer Chiefs legend Frank Makua says he is impressed with Stuart Baxter’s side’s form so far this season, although he has pointed out that the league is a marathon.
The Amakhosi sit on top of the Absa Premiership table, having collected 21 points from the seven games played so far. They will be turning their attention to the Telkom Knockout competition, but have surely sent a message across to the other 15 clubs that they are keen to reclaim the league title, which was won by Mamelodi Sundowns next season.
Makua, who joined Chiefs in 1995 and left five years later for Ria Stars, says he is impressed with the collective effort being shown by the team.
“They are on a good run. I think they are sending a message out, but the league is a marathon. It’s still early. Seven games, 21 points... that’s a morale boost. The guys will be even more motivated if they win in the Telkom Knockout on the weekend. It’s not gonna be easy, but they are willing to fight," he revealed.
Makua went on, "They play as a collective, from defence right up to the striking department. They are not easy to penetrate, as they are solid in defence. The communication between Tefu Mashamaite and Erick Mathoho is very nice to see. Siboniso Gaxa and Tsepo Masilela are doing well. They attack and defend with the same pace,” said Makua.
