Why Chiefs Need A Break...

Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt has explained why his side will need a break after this weekend’s Soweto Derby.
Amakhosi played to a goalless draw with Angolan outfit Petro de Luanda in a CAF Champions League group C clash, moving to five points after four matches. Chiefs will host Wydad Casablanca in their next match and then travel to Guinea to face Horoya.

This weekend they face Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates for the fourth time this season, having already been on the losing side three times to the Buccaneers.

“Obviously, disappointed. But you have to take a lot of things into consideration. I think the team did. I think we’ve been going now for a good few months. We’ve got to get through the weekend and then we need a break, you could. We’ve got one last push for the weekend and then we’ve got a FIFA break and I think that’s going to help us just to revive a bit. You can see that there’s mental fatigue because of all the playing up and down and around. But they gave me their all. The most important thing is that they are fighting and they are doing their best. You can’t fault the players,” Hunt told media after the game in Luanda.

Chiefs have done fairly well in the Champions League and Hunt believes they’ve only had one bad game, which was against Wydad in Burkina Faso, a game they lost 4-0.
“We possibly going to need a win and a draw. It might get us win. We’ve got Wydad (at home) and Horoya away, which is obviously not going to be easy as well. I think all in all, we’ve had one bad result, even in the preliminary games. So, we’ve done okay if you look at the results. (There’s) only one bad game out of so many. We’ve had some good battling performances.”
