Kaizer Chiefs legend Brian Baloyi has issued a message to the club’s senior players regarding their CAF Champions League journey this season.
The man affectionately known as ‘Spider Man’ for his incredible reflexes during his playing days where he endeared himself to the Chiefs faith, has joined the rally behind Amakhosi, who are on the verge of qualifying for the Champions League semi-final, thanks to their 4-0 first leg victory over Simba SC.
With Chiefs set to do duty in Tanzania this weekend, the Amakhosi legend has sent a message to the club’s players to perform out of their shell to attain continental glory.
“I am a fan of this phenomenal club and I still wear my Kaizer Chiefs tracksuit with pride. We have been taking flak on the streets in recent years and we’ve been suffering. But this is an opportunity for the players to forget their problems," Baloyi told Chiefs’ media department.
"This is the chance for the senior players in the team to rally everyone around the cause and for the players to come out of their shell and to perform. As a footballer there are two things you want. You want to excel for your national team, and you want to excel for your club and the CAF Champions League is the ultimate honour and achievement at continental club level,” he added.
Chiefs announced their traveling squad, that will do duty at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium on Saturday. Kick off is scheduled for 15:00.
