The Phefeni Glamour Boys have the League and the Nedbank Cup in their sights and ‘Chincha Guluva’, concerned that the wheels could come off at this crucial stage, addressed the players to assist in relieving the pressure so the players can focus on the job at hand.
“I don’t know where you got that from, but the chairman did indeed sit us down as players and gave his thoughts about the current situation we find ourselves in,” Chiefs skipper Itumeleng Khune confirms.
“The most important thing is that we must be calm. It was just him sharing his thoughts to what happened in the past. There were instances where we lost the League with one point in the past,” he continues.
Khune, however, has assured the multitude of Chiefs fans that the team will live up to expectations.
“For us, it is 2012/13 and we are a different team, different players and we will make the Kaizer Chiefs family very proud.
“Even before he addressed us, we felt comfortable. We know what we have to do, but it is not going to be easy because teams are trying to avoid relegation and some want to get into the top eight, some want to win the League. So everyone in our team has upped his game,” Khune adds.
Chiefs have a three-point lead on the League table with two matches remaining, while they will meet SuperSport United for the Nedbank Cup Final on May 25 at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
