Mpumalanga Black Aces coach, Muhsin Ertugral, is aware that Kaizer Chiefs are cup specialists but is confident of his side’s capabilities.
Aces will welcome the Amakhosi to the Mbombela Stadium on Saturday with proceedings set for 18h00.
Ertugral expects a tough game from the renowned cup kings of South Africa, but is not worried about historical facts and is confident his side has the ability to cause an upset on the day.
The former Chiefs coach also made mention of his relationship with current Amakhosi mentor, Steve Komphela, indicating that their friendship will be put to one side for the day.
“Yes, I know Kaizer Chiefs and I know that they are cup specialists but, in this game, history won’t work,” Ertugral told Soccer Laduma.
“I will be happy to face Steve and I know he will also be happy to face me, but we will put our friendship aside and do work for our teams.
“It’s a cup game and a once-off. We have to win to stand a chance of winning the trophy as well.”
