City Get Chiefs Backing Amid Horror Streak

They may have won just five games since April of last year, but Cape Town City have the backing of Ernst Middendorp after Kaizer Chiefs put them to the sword over the weekend.

Amakhosi extended their lead at the top of the Absa Premiership as they put three goals past Jan Olde Riekerink’s side, a result that saw them overtake both their scoring tally and points tally for 2018/19 after just 17 games.

Despite their convincing result against the Citizens, Middendorp has backed the Mother City side to turn things around soon, calling them ‘a bunch of good players’.

Speaking to the club’s official website, “A soccer game is 80% mental… We were on top of it, I could feel it. We were more confident and stronger mentally than the position. We were not sublime in our play, but there was no point where I felt we could lose this game.

“This is the kind of strength we need to compete and stay on top. The opposition is very skilful I must say. Not Kermit Erasmus alone, they are a bunch of good players. They just need more confidence to get results. They will soon start to pick up points, I think.”
