Tsotetsi: Challenging Season For Chiefs And Pirates

Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Mokete Tsotetsi is expecting an entertaining Soweto Derby this weekend, this despite him viewing the 2020/21 campaign as one of the most challenging seasons for both Amakhosi and Orlando Pirates.

Following their respective 1-1 draws on Tuesday against TS Galaxy and Baroka respectively, Pirates and Chiefs will be going at each other at Orlando Stadium on Saturday in the fight for three points to try and reduce the gap with Mamelodi Sundowns at the top of the DStv Premiership log, though Tsotetsi believes that the eagerly awaited clash could end in a stalemate.

“This is one of the more challenging seasons for both Chiefs and Pirates. But it is more challenging to Kaizer Chiefs because they didn’t start well and so far, haven’t done well than we expected them to due to the circumstances that they are facing as the new coach can’t add new faces in the team. He is working with the players that he has. But the wins that the team got recently were well-deserved wins because I think gradually, they will turn the corner with time and patience,” said Tsotetsi.

“On the other hand, if you remember at how Pirates started, there was a time when the coach (Josef Zinnbauer) was away (for family reasons) and the assistant coach Fadlu (Davids) was the one in charge. The coach came back and there was a little bit of improvement in their performances but now they seem to have dropped again. For both teams, it is challenging times because they are dropping points when we are expecting them to gain points. They haven’t found their feet. I can’t say for sure who is better than who, but you must remember that we are now going to the big one and it is different from the rest of the games. It’s big for both teams. The players will raise their game and will want to work harder. It’s going to be an interesting one, but I foresee a draw,” the former centre-back told the Siya crew.
