Former Keeper’s Advice For Chiefs Title Fight

Kaizer Chiefs will face off with Mamelodi Sundowns on Thursday, August 27 in one of thr biggest encounters in their title race. 

The Soweto giants lead the Absa Premiership log by three points over second-placed Sundowns and a win tomorrow will put a comfortable lead between the two sides. 

Amakhosi have four-matches left of the 2019/20 campaign, though the encounter on Thursday evening is one of the biggest deciders on who lifts the trophy come the end of the season.

Speaking on Chiefs’ official website, former Chiefs and Sundowns goalkeeper, Brian Baloyi shared some advice to the Amakhosi team.

“The players should encourage each other. The boys are all staying in the bio-bubble, the Biological Safe Environment (BSE), because of the Covid-19 epidemic. They should try to shut out the outside world. Also forget about social media, at least until the last game of the season. The players have each other. They should stay positive, be together and form a strong unit," he said.

“It promises to be a tough match.

“However, I am sure that all the players, even those not playing, are aware about the situation we are in. We have the opportunity to win a major trophy in our 50th anniversary year. It’s something that doesn’t present itself every day. That’s why it’s so important that the players go into Thursday’s game with a positive mindset because they have the chance to write themselves into the club’s history books.

“The players should stop listening to and reading about any criticism coming their way. Chiefs have a very good team and it’s up to the senior players to talk with their teammates, especially the younger ones to let them know how special they are,” he said.

The top-of-the-table clash between the two title challengers will get underway at 18h00 on Thursday, August 27.
