Philani Zulu of Kaizer Chiefs FC has spoken out on how it feels to have their CAF Champions League fixture against Wydad Casablanca postponed.
Chiefs were due to travel to Morocco during the weekend to face Morocco side Wydad Casablanca, but the clash was postponed due to fear of the Covid-19 variant.
“Looking at how we got knocked out of the Nedbank Cup, it was a sad thing to go through. Now it is up to us to pick up our feet and look forward to the next game against AmaZulu. It is not going to be an easy game.
They played on Sunday and they have the momentum going forward and we have not been playing since the previous game in the Nedbank Cup. It’s all up to us as players to keep our feet on the ground and our heads up high,” Zulu told the Chiefs media department.
“As much as it was a blunder not to play in the CAF, it gave us a bit more time to reflect on ourselves and prepare as a team because we needed that. Given the time that we had, we are looking good and we are looking forward to giving our best.”
Chiefs still do not know where their fixture will be played while they must play their second CAF game against Horoya on the 23 February.
