Premier League

Akpeyi disclose how he is feeling

The 35-year-old disclosed that he has counted himself fortunate to earn a starting position for Kaizer Chiefs in seven straight top-flight matches.

The Kaizer Chiefs goal-scorer Daniel Akpeyi has admitted he does not believe he is the current first choice for the Premier Soccer League (PSL) giants.

The 35-year-old Nigerian custodian has managed to play seven straight matches for Chiefs in the top-flight this season, against Maritzburg United in their last league assignment, he kept his 50th PSL clean sheet.

When the new season kicked off, the first four games saw Chiefs prefer either Bruce Bvuma or Brandon Peterson but he has been the first choice since then.

Akpeyi has now admitted he always considers himself fortunate to be playing these days despite Chiefs having a solid goalkeeping department which also includes veteran custodian Itumeleng Khune.

"If someone would tell me that I am the No.1 keeper, I would ask him to rephrase that. I am just one of the four great keepers at the club who's been given opportunities of late. We have a solid goalkeeping department". Said Akpeyi.
