One Title, Four Favourites – ‘Chiefs Must Forget’

A former PSL striker has ruled out Kaizer Chiefs in the PSL title race as he believes that there are four other clubs in contention for this season’s championship. 

While Kaizer Chiefs’ head coach Ernst Middendorp remains hopeful that his side could still challenge for the Absa Premiership title this season, some believe the title is likely to be decided among the top four teams on the log.

James Mothibi, who made his debut in the professional ranks against Kaizer Chiefs when he started his career with African Wanderers in the 2001/02 season, is one of those who have ruled out seventh-placed Amakhosi from the title race.

“It’s tough but I think Wits have a 90% chance to take the league title. But it’s going to be tough. I have watched Wits’ matches and sometimes they are on and off, they are not consistent. They are like Highlands Park. Highlands Park play well but they are not consistent,” said Mothibi.

The Warrenton-born player believes that the title will be won between log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, Bidvest Wits, Orlando Pirates and Cape Town City.

“The league winner for this season will be between three teams and they are Wits, Sundowns and Pirates. But I give it to Pirates as the first possible winner. My number two is Sundowns, number three Wits and number four will be Cape Town City. Chiefs must forget about it,” added the ex-Orlando Pirates striker.
