Ever Ready Rama: Chiefs Are Still League Contenders

Ramahlwe Mphahlele Says It's Good To Be Back For Kaizer Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 15, 2018 09:42 AM

Ramahlwe Mphahlele was happy to get back on the field, playing for Kaizer Chiefs over the weekend. He made his return following a long injury layoff.

The 28-year-old picked up a knee injury back in August that required surgery, and he has spent the last few months making sure that he made a full recovery in order to get back to his best.

Having sat on the bench for the last few games, ‘Rama’ was given a starting berth in the Nedbank Cup, repaying Steve Komphela for his faith by helping them to a 3-0 win over Golden Arrows.

Speaking to Chiefs’ official website after the game, he said, “It felt good to be back. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy as Joseph Molangoane has been in top form.

“Football has taught me so many lessons and one is to be permanently on my toes. I didn’t know beforehand that I would play against Arrows, but a player needs to be ever ready.

“I had to get used to the new formation in the first half, however the coach spoke with me during the half-time break and he gave me the licence to join in attack if that was safe to do so.”

Now, as they turn their attentions to Cape Town City this weekend, Mphahlele knows that they have to win if they’re to keep their title ambitions alive.

He said, “It will be tough, but we need the three points to stay in contention for the league title. We just need to play as a team. We are still very much contenders for the league title.”

Chiefs host City on Saturday night at 20h15.

MMMMM Money can make you everything, i didn't know that sundowns is bigger than the Mighty Amakhosi. I thought the big club is determined by the sales (Receipts)and the achievements. The last time I checked sundowns has only achieved to sign a lot of experienced players that have not achieved anything much for the club. Even the players have noticed that money cannot make them happier than being given game time, Rama has thaught of stability as well as the future when he moved to Naturena. I think Rama is wiser and had a best choice when I look ahead in terms of future. Look at Mr Cool Thabo Ntethe where is he now? He is asking to be released. Sundowns once wanted to sign Shabba I think in 2012/2013 i bet you if he went there he would'nt be playing soccer at all. Or he'll be playing at ABC Motsepe like Lerato Shanbangu. What happened to Ngele after he left platinum stars? I bet on Manyisa and Lebese I don't wish them bad but in the next two seasons to come they'll bench warmers.

Supporting Chiefs in this generation is more like burning oneself because no matter the love you have for the team, hurtfontein is guaranteed yearly.

Motaung didn't want to lose traveling money knowing that FAU is weak against African teams.

Motaung: Kaizer Chiefs will participate in the Caf Champions League By Ernest Makhaya AmaKhosi chairman Kaizer Motaung has assured the nation that the team will participate in the Caf Champions League next year Kaizer Chiefs boss Kaizer Motaung has promised that AmaKhosi will represent the country in the next edition of the Caf Champions League. The newly crowned PSL champions were initially thought to be planning to boycott the Africa's biggest club competition. Read more on: Tovey: No team deserved the league more than Kaizer Chiefs  "We will definitely play in the Caf Champions League, for the pride of the nation we have to," said Motaung Senior during a live TV interview on Thursday night. Despite the challenges that come with participating in the Caf Champions League especially when playing away from home, Motaung is confident that Chiefs could withstand them. Read more on: Interview with Jimmy Tau However, he wants Caf to eradicate all  the negatives that influence African football so badly, as he mulled over what happened to Pirates in Lubumbashi. "Surely there are things that need to be rectified by Caf. We heard what Pirates went through in DRC and those are some of the things that need to be attended to," added Motaung. With Motaung confirming their participation in the African Champions League next year, it will be Chiefs' first competitive Caf competition since their withdrawal from Caf Confederation Cup that came with a four-year suspension back in 2005. Hehe hehe
