“Chiefs Have The Quality For The Double"
Joseph Molangoane Thinks Kaizer Chiefs Can Win The Absa Premiership & Nedbank Cup
Despite being seven points behind Mamelodi Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs’ Joseph Molangoane thinks the Amakhosi can still win a league and cup double.
The Glamour Boys take on Cape Town City this weekend in a must-win game at FNB, and were drawn against Stellenbosch FC in the Nedbank Cup as they chase a spot in the quarterfinals.
He told the media on Thursday, “We have quality in the team to get both. I don’t see anything stopping us. We can go there and fight, but what matters is each game as it comes. If we win our remaining 10 games in the league and the four left in the Nedbank, then we have a chance.”
Meanwhile, regarding their Nedbank opponents, ‘Tight’ thinks that it will be a different game to last year, when they knocked out the National First Division with a 3-0 victory.
He said, “I am happy with the draw, but you know it’s a difficult one. We played Stellenbosch last season and it was difficult, but we managed to get a victory.
“Now things have changed (since the last game) and we don’t know what’s happening there. It’s difficult, but we need to soldier on and you know we need a trophy. The technical team and players know how important it is. We won against Arrows and now we need to come up with a plan for Stellenbosch. We have to fight.”
A victory over City tomorrow could help Chiefs close the gap on Masandawana, but with only 10 games left to play it will be a big ask for Steve Komphela’s side to catch the leaders.
