Papic, who is known to be uncompromising on his brand of

of credit that they got for their league exploits.
"First of all, congratulations to Kaizer Chiefs; in my
opinion they deserve to win the League," said Papic on Wednesday night.
Rise and Shine suffered a heavy defeat against Amakhosi on
Wednesday night but Papic was not in the least bit perturbed by the outcome
because Chiefs are currently the best team in the country at the moment.
"From the beginning they started very well. They break

"We came here to spoil the party, but we are enjoying

"They have two defeats so far, which is if you look at
the history of PSL. The team which wins the league is either they lost two or

others. They definitely deserve to win the league long time ago.
"It is good for a big club in the country like Chiefs
to win the League three matches before the end."
