The Glamour Boys, who will celebrate their 50th birthday in January, are currently top of the Absa Premiership table, flying high on confidence and preparing for an exciting clash with Cape Town City, but that’s just the first of several challenges in the coming weeks. 

Chiefs face City in the Telkom Knockout on Saturday, but also have a big game against Mamelodi Sundowns coming up before the end of the month, and then a vital Soweto Derby encounter with Orlando Pirartes in early November.

Head coach, Ernst Middendorp, star player, Khama Billiat, and new recruit, Yagan Sasman, will all play a big role in whether Chiefs’ half-century year can see the end of their trophy drought, and all three were quoted by the PSL’s official Twitter account at today’s media day at Naturena, discussing Chiefs’ current situation and the TKO clash ahead of them at the weekend.

Middendorp is eager for success against City, and knows what is expected, saying, "We will do everything to go to the next round. We have to continue doing well to get the supporters back in the stands. Kaizer Chiefs is a big club..." 

Billiat, who put in a fine performance in the Shell Helix Ultra Cup over the weekend, said, “Credit must go to the technical team and all the players. We are all happy to be here and we are working hard everyday to do well for the club."

Chiefs and City lock horns at 15h00 on Saturday afternoon.
