:See what Chiefs winger said about Middendorp, when they face their former coach.

Kaizer Chiefs winger: "We Are Aware Of Middendorp Threat".

Kgaogelo Sekgota, a Kaizer Chiefs winger, has emphasized that his club is fully aware of the threat that Ernst Middendorp and his team pose when they face off against the former Amakhosi coach.

After suffering an injury earlier in the season, the 24-year-old was forced to miss some time, but he returned in the final three games of the season for the Chiefs.


In addition to having more time to get back into shape during the international break, he also disclosed how his team has prepared for their match against Maritzburg on Tuesday night.


In a statement released by the club's media department, Sekgota said, "We took a little time off during the break, but we've been back at training for a few days and are completely focused on the next game."


"Our preparation was not significantly hampered by the absence of other players because they were training with the national teams," explains the lightning-quick Sekgota.


"We also maintained in touch with some of the people who were representing us, and we were completely behind them in terms of our support and our hopes that they would perform well. "


The players and coaches are relieved to have them back in the fold, and everyone can now concentrate on the upcoming encounter.


Furthermore, Sekgota referred to the danger that Middendorp and his team pose, pointing out that the German would be in command of the Glamour Boys for the 2018-2020 season.


As he said, "We have been preparing for Maritzburg and are well aware that their coach may know a little bit about our team because he was here two seasons ago."

"Maritzburg will not be easy to beat, and they have not been an easy team to beat while playing at home in the past." They have also had a shaky start to the season, therefore they are aiming for the highest number of points possible.


The fact that they will want to start picking up points so that they can move away from the bottom half of the table is something we are aware of. We're also looking for the three points so that we can progress up the log table a little bit more. It's going to be a difficult game."

After ten games, the Chiefs are in sixth place on the log with 15 points, while Maritzburg are in eleventh place, four points below them in the standings.

The Team of Choice will take on Amakhosi on Sunday at 17:30 at the Harry Gwala Stadium in Johannesburg.
