Chiefs’ Zulu: It Was A Sad Thing To Go Through

Kaizer Chiefs left back Philani Zulu has explained how their postponed CAF Champions League clash against Wydad Casablanca has given them time to reflect as a team.

Amakhosi last played a game in the Nedbank Cup last 32 against GladAfrica Championship side Richards Bay, when they were beaten 2-1. They were due to travel to play Moroccan outfit Wydad Casablanca in a group stage clash over the past weekend, but the clash was postponed due to the Soweto giants being denied visas to enter the north African country. The game will be played in a different country.

Amakhosi have had more time to prepare for this afternoon’s DSTV Premiership clash against AmaZulu at FNB Stadium. The Soweto giants are in ninth place on 18 points going into the clash against Usuthu, who have been in good form since coach Benni McCarthy took over.

“Looking at how we got knocked out of the Nedbank Cup, it was a sad thing to go through. Now it’s up to us to pick up our feet and look forward to the next game against AmaZulu. It’s not going to be an easy game. They played on Sunday and they have the momentum going forward and we have not been playing since the previous game in the Nedbank Cup. It’s all up to us as players to keep our feet on the ground and our heads up high,” Zulu told the Chiefs media department.

“As much as it was a blunder not to play in the CAF, it gave us a bit more time to reflect on ourselves and prepare as a team because we needed that. Given the time that we had, we are looking good and we are looking forward to giving our best.”

The clash is scheduled for 15:00.
