Last Ditch Effort For Cup: ‘Chiefs Might Have A Problem’

A former Kaizer Chiefs star believes that the Soweto giants may struggle to defeat TS Galaxy in their match this coming weekend.

Amakhosi will play against the high-flying National First Division side in their Nedbank Cup final at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.

Following some disappointing results for coach Ernst Middendorp’s side this season, Amakhosi could be shocked by Dan ‘Dance’ Malesela’s side, according to former Chiefs midfielder Junior Khanye. 

“Chiefs might have a problem against TS Galaxy because of their inconsistency. Dance is a very good coach and his team plays well. In fact, all the teams coached by Dance play very good football. Chiefs on the other hand rely on individual brilliance of certain players in order to win matches. I doubt them for the final. I’m still not convinced about how Chiefs play and I’m not scared to say it,” Khanye told the Siya crew.

According to the ex-youth international, Khama Billiat will be one of the players to look out for from the Soweto giants.

“Khama Billiat is the one who make Chiefs tick. Dance will have to plan around closing Khama down and half of the job will have been done. I know Dance isn’t the kind of a coach who likes to concern himself too much with the opponents, but he will have to have a plan for Khama,” added the 33-year-old.

Chiefs are still trying to come to terms with finishing the 2018/19 season outside the top eight bracket of the Absa Premiership log, following their 1-0 loss against Chippa United this past weekend.  

Middendorp has described Chiefs’ failure to qualify for the top eight as ‘a disaster’ and ‘a huge disappointment’ for the club.
