RULANI ON ZWANE COMMENTS AHEAD OF CHIEFS CLASH
Arthur Zwane stated that his Kaizer Chiefs team will enter their match against Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday without fear, to which Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena has answered.
As a result of Sundowns' 1-0 loss to TS Galaxy and the Amakhosi's convincing 3-0 victory over Maritzburg United on Tuesday, Chiefs actually enter the match ahead of the defending champions.
After two games in the 2022–23 season, both teams currently have three points and will face one another in the third round's featured match.
Prior to the game, Zwane had claimed that the Chiefs will try to outplay their opponents and have no fear of any team in the league. Mokwena later acknowledged that this statement just served to demonstrate the rivals' altered mindset.
When questioned by the iDiski Times about Zwane's remarks, he responded, "I only say that they think they are a big team and properly so."
The profile of big teams never changes. They continually adjust to different situations, but they never alter their profiles. Therefore, I would argue that he is correct in his assessment.
Additionally, Mokwena said that anticipation for the match on Saturday is palpable and that he believes it will be a spectacle.
“It’s going to be quite interesting. But I think fixture in itself has always presented that type of spectacle,” he added.
“I think you even see with the numbers in the media room how much excitement there is from the general public and the football lovers. And that’s how it should be.
“In big football nations, the big football clubs drive the interest, they drive the passion and the play from a technical perspective.”
Sundowns will face the Glamour Boys at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria at 15:00.
