Kaizer Chiefs will soon announce their final pre-season schedule, and it seems that outside of the Carling Black Label Cup, there will be no significant friendlies.
Though some might be troubled by this, especially with Sundowns headed to Australia and the Ivory Coast in the pre-season, we should trust Coach Baxter's decision.
The Carling Black Label Cup is unlike any other off-season match, with a high level of competition between two of the biggest clubs in the land. And look how far Pirates got in the CAF last season: we will be competing against one of the best clubs the continent has to offer.
Though there may not be many high-profile exhibition matches, expect Amakhosi to take a special opportunity this pre-season to regroup and prepare to win back the league next season.
