But with that tag comes its own pressure of expectation from fans, especially as Chiefs have not won South Africa’s most prestigious cup competition since 2006.
“I have made this point before the game against Polokwane City, that we are only concerned about Chiefs’ plans,” Gaxa said. “We play for Chiefs and our focus is on doing the job the Chiefs’ way. United FC is not in the semis by default they are a professional outfit and we will treat them as such.”
United FC have had a fine season in the NFD, being dubbed the ‘Barcelona’ of the second tier for the fine football they play.
It sets up a fascinating first-ever meeting between the two clubs and one that United FC coach Dan Malesela is eagerly looking forward too. He is just interested in his side putting in a good performance though and showing the country their skills.
The much anticipated game dubbed ‘David vs Goliath’ by some media is billed for 20:15 kickoff.
