Eight Chiefs Starlets Identified Ahead Of Cup Final
Kaizer Chiefs Have A Chance Of Silverware This Weekend
Arthur Zwane has heaped praise on his players as Kaizer Chiefs head into this weekend’s Multichoice Diski Shield final against Mamelodi Sundowns.
The Amakhosi’s MDC side go into this weekend’s Shield final having beaten the likes of Platinum Stars, Bidvest Wits, Orlando Pirates and, most recently, Bloemfontein Celtic in order to reach this stage, and will be full of confidence going into the showpiece event at Tembisa’s Makhulong Stadium.
Zwane, who helped mastermind their march to the final, has singled out eight of his players that have made it possible, telling the club’s official website, “We have spoken to the boys about the importance of winning this trophy. We do not have any doubt about winning the match on Saturday. We have respect for Sundowns. They are one of the best-structured development sides in the Reserves league. We are equal to the task though, we are going to use the same approach that we have employed in the games we have played so far.
“We have allowed the players to express themselves. I must commend the players for they have responded positively in all the games, mentally and otherwise. Yusuf Bunting was instrumental in terms of leading the goalscoring role. In fact, all the players came through. Itumeleng Shopane, Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya, Brylon Petersen, Given Thibedi and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, were all marvellous.
“The chemistry in the team is very strong and we are continuing to build them for the future. Tristan Moses and Njabulo Blom, the list goes on. We have a group of players that will be ready to take up first team responsibilities in the future.”
The match is scheduled to take place on Saturday at 15h00.
