Former Kaizer Chiefs striker, Shane ‘Maketane’ McGregor, is relishing the opportunity to play against some of the greats of the club he supports, but admits there will be no favours on the field.
A team of Chiefs legends take on their Liverpool counterparts at the Moses Mabhida Stadium this weekend as some of the greatest players to play for the two clubs lock horns.

Players such as John Barnes, Robbie Fowler, Doctor Khumalo and Lucas Radebe will take part in the game and Durban fans will be treated to an experience that doesn’t come around too often.
There were more tickets released for the game recently due to popular demand, and the organisers are hoping that a big crowd will pack into Moses Mabhida.
Speaking to the Amakhosi’s official website McGregor said, “I have been a big Liverpool supporter all my life. I am looking forward to playing against my favourite team. On the field there will be no support. That is how it is in football, you get onto the pitch to compete and win games.
“The supporters will be treated to a fun filled game. This is going to be enjoyment to the spectators. I hope this will be the start and hopefully we can get more games going to help keep the supporters interested in soccer. The supporters will have an opportunity to watch the ‘old men’ and how football used to be played.”
Tickets for the game are still available from Computicket. The match starts at 14h00 on Saturday.
