Nedbank Cup

Mathoho Reflects On Trophyless Amakhosi Years

Erick Mathoho says that Kaizer Chiefs need to win the Nedbank Cup this season as the club draws closer to extending their barren run to three whole years.
 
 
The Glamour Boys haven’t gotten their hands on a single major trophy since winning the Absa Premiership in 2015, missing out on two league titles, three MTN8 trophies, three Telkom Knockout trophies and two Nedbank trophies.
 
Now, with the Amakhosi looking to overcome their first hurdle in this year’s edition – Golden Arrows – ‘Tower’ knows that it won’t be easy for them at FNB Stadium this weekend.
 
He told the club’s official website, “Cup games are different… Unlike a league match, only one team progresses to the next round. You win or you go out. It won’t be an easy game against Arrows. They are a hard team to beat, which means that we will need to come out fighting. 
 
 
“We haven’t won a cup in nearly three years. So this has to be ours. There is, however, still a long road to go and we have to treat each game as a final.”
 
But he’s hoping to go all the way down that road, especially having tasted Nedbank glory in 2013.
 
“It’s the dream of every footballer to play in a cup final”, he said. “We beat SuperSport United thanks to a goal in extra-time from Bernard Parker. It gave me an amazing feeling, it was awesome.”
 
Chiefs host Arrows at 15h30 on Sunday afternoon.
