Ekstein On What Motivates Him At Kaizer Chiefs

Hendrick Ekstein Wants Nedbank Cup Progression For Kaizer Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 20, 2018 10:22 AM
Kaizer Chiefs’ Hendrick Ekstein says that seeing his Man of the Match trophies when he gets home is something that motivates him to be better.
The 27-year-old Amakhosi midfielder scored the winning goal over the weekend as Chiefs picked up a win over Platinum Stars, finding the back of the net in the Absa Premiership for the first time since September 2016.
Now, with the Glamour Boys gearing up for a must-win encounter with Free State Stars in the Nedbank Cup, ‘Pule’ knows that it won’t be easy for them to come away from Durban with a spot in the final.
He told the club’s official website, “It won’t be easy, but we will work hard to progress to the final. It’s our aim to win the Nedbank Cup. They are a tough team to play against. We only beat them recently thanks to a late goal in the 94th minute. It promises to be a competitive match, but we will be ready. 
“We enjoy playing in Durban. We usually get good support there. We want to make our supporters happy and grab this opportunity to reach a cup final with both hands. We will try our level best to win this trophy.”
Meanwhile, he also spoke of his efforts to improve himself, saying, “I put in extra work at training to help improve my finishing, usually with our assistant coach, Patrick Mabedi. I always see the (Man of the Match) trophies when entering the room at home. Seeing those trophies motivates me to work harder and win even more.”
Chiefs take on Stars at 20h15 tomorrow night.

Dia boya mo! After Mr Motsepe bought Sundowns, we went thruogh hell. I remember our president attending every game, only to return home disappointed. We changed coaches after coaches, buying players left/right/centre..but all bear no results! We were Chiefs daily bread, always lose every final against Chiefs. Today, Mr Motsepe is in the PROMISE LAND. I just wish players can reward him with another CAFCL trophy.

This guy has failed us at chiefs. I think its about time Ntshangase took your role in the field of play, He is new and has the same if not better abilities than you. Komphela benches Ntshangase and plays you, with his excuse that Ntshangase has no defensive abilities, but you and Ntshangase are the same nje. This Komphela smokes something serious, Ntshangase should be on the field tomorrow and you on the bench. Zuma must start the game along with Castro and Moon must be on the bench.
