Amakhosi are on a record-breaking season, having already collected 66 points with two games still to go, which is the most number of points since the league went to 16 sides in 2002.
“We had already won the league before facing Mamelodi Sundowns last week. That game, however, showed that we still have energy left.” That’s what Kaizer Chiefs captain Tefu Mashamaite stresses ahead of Wednesday evening’s Absa Premiership clash against Bidvest Wits at the FNB Stadium (kick-off at 19:30).
“Wits are a great team to join as a youngster,” the defender reflects. “There is a culture of development, of promoting youngsters from the academy to the first team.”
“On the other hand, at Chiefs, the intensity and the ambition to win trophies are much more hard core. The Amakhosi are more business like,” Mashamaite continues, “winning trophies is a must and everything at the Village is geared towards achieving this.”
This season, Chiefs have collected two more trophies, the MTN8 and the Absa Premiership title.
With two league games to go, there is a possibility that Amakhosi can still reach 72 points, which will be an enormous amount to have collected from 30 games.
If Chiefs beat Wits tomorrow, they will move to 21 wins for the season, which will be another record since the league went to 16 clubs.
