Soweto Derby

“For Chiefs It 3 points To The Title But For Us…”

Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs will lock horns this weekend in the most anticipated fixture of the 2019/20 campaign.

The Bucs will play the host to top of the log Amakhosi on Saturday at the FNB Stadium and despite the two coaches playing down any title talk, both sides are in the race for the number one spot.

“All the clubs (at the top) have the chance for the title but the best chances is for Kaizer Chiefs,” Zinnbauer told the media at the Soweto derby press conference.

While the German mentor rules out title talk, his side is raring to go for this weekend’s clash.

“We see this in the training session, they are very hot and hungry, when I say stop it is finished – they say no coach, we want to play, give me a free kick or give me a corner or whatever and they are special, they have focus on the derby but always the next game; for us as coaches, the next game is important.”

“It is a special game for me too, but you don’t get more points here – you have a chance for three points and nothing more. I am a coach I am not a player, I am the coach and I focus on the result while the player focuses on the game.”

“Like Ernst said – you don’t have a chance in the game to say – hey go on the other side, they won’t hear. So we prepare the team before and then you have a little chance at half time. It is a special game for the players, but for the coaches – for Ernst, it is three points for the title and for us, it is three points for the improvement, a little education – it is experience for us,” he added.
