Themba Zwane: Kaizer Chiefs Are Still A Strong Side
Mamelodi Sundowns’ Themba Zwane says that the Brazilians are expecting a tough encounter against Kaizer Chiefs despite the Soweto giants' current inconsistent form in the Absa Premiership.
Sundowns will lock horns with Amakhosi at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Tuesday, October 17 when the Absa Premiership returns to action following the FIFA break.
Apart from the encounter being one of the most anticipated spectacles in the Premier Soccer League, both sides will be determined to gain the three points to better their form in the Absa Premiership and advance further up the league standings.
Speaking to Sundowns’ media coordinator, Thulani Thuswa, Bafana Bafana international, Zwane says that each individual in the team is motivated for the encounter, adding that Chiefs are still a tough side to come up against, despite their inconsistent run of form in the current 2017/18 campaign.
“I think we are all motivated, obviously, when we play a big game, the is no need for anyone to tell us or to motivate us, we all switch on because big games motivate each and every player, each and every player wants to play that game so we are motivated, we are ready for the game. A home game and a big game and hopefully we would like to see our supporters come in numbers,” Zwane said.
“Yes they are still a strong side, games are not the same, you won’t judge them by their previous games because you never know what to expect when you play against them. It is a big game and they are also motivated and also looking forward to playing this game so it is going to be a tough game. But, we are ready for everything.”
On what Sundowns can expect from the Soweto giants on the day, Zwane said, “They are going to come at us because they also need the win and they are going to be fighting and trying to get goals, but we know how to handle those things.”
