Hendrick ’Pule’ Ekstein has revealed how he will spend the day on Saturday as his former club Kaizer Chiefs will be playing their Nedbank Cup final against TS Galaxy at Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The 28-year-old Bekkersdal-born player contributed in three of Chiefs’ Nedbank Cup matches with his performances this season – against Tornado FC, The Magic FC and Cape Town City – before he had his contract terminated by the Soweto giants three weeks ago.

The midfield ace was one of the goalscorers as Amakhosi impressively beat the Citizens 2-0 in their quarter-final match at the Mbombela Stadium in March.  

“I could say that I am healed now, but the whole thing will come up again on the 18th when I see amajita (the guys) celebrating. One thing I will tell myself will be, ‘Yes, they are playing in the final and I was supposed to be there, but at the end of the day I played my part. Yes, I’m not there, and God knows why I’m not there It’s not about me or Bobby, God knows why’,” Ekstein told the Siya crew.

As confirmed by the Premier Soccer League at the end of last month already, tickets for the eagerly-awaited match were sold out less than 24 hours after ticket sales opened.

“I’m not sure where I will be watching the game. It will either be at home or where I stay. It could be anywhere, I won’t have a problem, but I won’t be going to the stadium. But it should be where there will be other people as I don’t like being alone,” added Ekstein. 

Meanwhile, Chiefs will aim to beat their opponents from the National First Division to the top prize and to reward the management and supporters with a trophy this season.
