Katsande Believes Chiefs Will Bounce Back
Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Willard Katsande is confident the team will respond positively after their recent MTN8 disappointment.
Amakhosi were beaten 1-0 in the MTN8 final by Ajax Cape Town at the weekend and will be looking to bounce back immediately with a win over Tuks on Wednesday.
“Champions always bounce back,” Katsande told the official Kazier Chiefs website.
“We respect Tuks. They are a good side, but we will be ready.”
“However, we have learnt from our mistakes and our focus is now on defending our Absa Premiership trophy. Unlike a cup, which is a sprint, the league is a marathon.”
Katsande added that he was delighted with the Chiefs supporters, who have shown that they stand behind their team no matter what.
“Our supporters were great,” he continued.
“They never booed us. Instead, they gave us full support until after the game, despite the disappointing result. That’s also why we want to come up with a positive result on Wednesday. We want to reward our fans for always being behind us. They give us so much motivation and they always inspire us to do better.”
