Chiefs Aim For Fifth Macufe Cup

Kaizer Chiefs will be looking to claim the Macufe Cup for the fifth time when they take on Bloemfontein Celtic on October 13.

The Amakhosi won the inaugural Macufe Cup tournament in 2004, going on to claim victory in 2005, 2009 and 2011.

However, last season it was Siwelele who claimed the trophy, beating the Glamour Boys 4-3 at Free State Stadium in October of last year.

While Celtic will be keen to retain the silverware this time around, Stuart Baxter will be just as eager to claim the trophy for the first time.

The game will see the two sides meet once again at Free State Stadium, where Chiefs fans could get the first glimpse of their new signing, Ivan Bukenya.

Speaking to Chiefs’ official website, their football manager Bobby Motaung explained that fans may well see Bukenya in action.

He said, “Macufe is an opportunity for our players to play in a competitive match during the Fifa week. It is good for the players because they have an opportunity to express themselves as witnessed by a high scoring rate in the past.

“The coach will use the platform to sample different combinations. Last year Tsepo Masilela made his debut at the Macufe and depending on the Coach, the fans might see Ivan Bukenya for the first time in this game.”

Clinton Larsen and Baxter have already come up against each other once in the PSL this season, but there were no goals as the match ended 0-0.
