Masilela: Our Plan Stays The Same Whether Or Not Rakhale Plays

Kaizer Chiefs defender, Tsepo Masilela, says the Amakhosi will not change their game plan even if Orlando Pirates midfielder, Thabo Rakhale, is to make the starting line-up.

'Jomo' has only started four of the Buccaneers' seven league games so far this season and was left out of the matchday squad completely for Bucs' league encounter with Golden Arrows on Wednesday, which they lost 2-0.

Masilela has indicated that Chiefs are not too concerned about whether or not Rakhale plays in the Soweto Derby this Saturday and are concentrating on the Pirates team as a whole.

“This is a team sport and it’s not about one player. As Kaizer Chiefs, we play as a team so when we face Orlando Pirates on Saturday, we won’t be thinking of one player but Pirates as a team.

“I can’t talk about the form of Pirates’ players because we are thinking about what we can do as a team on the day to make sure we collect the three points.

“Whether Thabo Rakhale plays or not, our plan for the game will be the same on Saturday.”
