Chiefs target 'next level'
Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs will be looking to take things "to the next level" when they resume their chase for the PSL title on Wednesday.
Amakhosi start the second-half of the Premiership campaign in
third place and resume hostilities against Jomo Cosmos in midweek before
hosting Soweto rivals Moroka Swallows on Saturday.
The Glamour Boys have been back in training since January 16, and
marketing director Jessica Motaung feels the team are primed to bring
the glory days back to Naturena.
"This is a new year with new energy and we aim to be taking
things to the next level this second half of the season," Motaung,
daughter of Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung, told the club's official
"The game against our rivals (Swallows) at FNB Stadium in Soweto
will, without a doubt, invoke memories of some of the historic clashes
between the two sides including the thrilling 5-5 draw in the 80s
famously known as the 'way of life'. The operations team has been
working hard and it is now all systems go.
"The club has turned 42 this year and we are quite delighted to
reach this milestone. We have exciting marketing activations that are in
store for the fans this year."
Meanwhile, team manager Bobby Motaung reiterated his sister's
views and says the entire club are ready to hit the ground running.
"We are delighted to have finalized contracts of the players during the January transfer window," he added.
"It was our priority to make sure that we retain the squad as it is and only added young Brian Abbas Amidu.
"We have a plan and we are on track with all our plans to
challenge for league honours this season. This is a belief that I share
with the executive chairman Kaizer Motaung, technical team, players and
everyone associated with the club."
