Nedbank Cup

Two-Time Nedbank Champ: “Chiefs Aim To Win It!”

Kaizer Chiefs defender, Ramahlwe Mphahlele, is no stranger to the Nedbank Cup having won it two times already, and he’s hoping for number three this year.
 
 
The 27-year-old is enjoying a solid first season with the Amakhosi since his move from Mamelodi Sundowns at the start of the season, and with just a couple months left of the campaign they are still in the running for two pieces of silverware.
 
Chiefs take on Acornbush United this afternoon, an ABC Motsepe League side that lost just one game all season, and none on home soil at Kabokweni Stadium.  
 
MacDonald Makhubedu’s side already have one Absa Premiership scalp this season after beating Cape Town City, and ‘Rama’ says that they will be given the respect they deserve.
 
He told Chiefs’ official website, “We have worked hard to prepare for this match. It is clear in the dressing room that we take the Nedbank Cup very seriously. It’s our aim to win it. That’s why we need to beat Acornbush to progress to the quarters.
 
“Make no mistake, we will treat them with respect. For 90 minutes it will be eleven-against-eleven. The status of the respective leagues we play in won’t matter.”
 
The defender, who won the Nedbank in 2009 with Moroka Swallows and 2015 with Sundowns, is pleased with the season so far, but wants to progress to the quarterfinals to keep their current run going.
 
“We have put ourselves in a good position by reaching this stage. We are in this round of 16 of the Nedbank Cup and in a fine log position, with only a three points deficit to the leader. I am happy as long as we win. We want to make our supporters happy and proud.
 
“I’ve heard a lot about Acornbush. There are many sources of information about them – they are a good team to play against. They only lost one league game this season, never losing at home.”
 
Acornbush host Chiefs at 15h00 today.
