Mathoho: We're Ready To Defend Our Pride And The Badge

Ahead of Kaizer Chiefs’ match away to Bloemfontein Celtic on Wednesday, Amakhosi defender Eric Mathoho is feeling fresh and ready for the PSL to resume.

Mathoho said that the experience he had at the African Cup of Nations in Equatorial will stand him in good stead for the rest of the season.

Mathoho said there is a still a long way to go until the end of the season, but he is confident that Chiefs will remain professional and go onto win the league.

“I am fresh and looking forward to combine well with my teammates to continue where we left off before the break,” Mathoho told the Kaizer Chiefs website.

“We learned a lot of things at the Afcon. Playing against overseas-based and experienced players was an eye-opener, which will come handy in the domestic league and cup matches.”

“I had good moments at Celtic but now I am a Glamour Boy. Celtic is not a so-called small team. They have the backing of their passionate supporters.”

“It is still a long way to go to the last game. We take each game as it comes. Celtic will look at breaking our momentum, but they will find us ready to defend our pride and the badge.

“We are professionals, we have to go on and perform on the field, and the rest is just a state of mind that we will be able to deal with.”

Chiefs meet Celtic on Wednesday evening at 19h30.
