Johannesburg - Despite their poor start to the 2015 calendar year in the Absa Premiership, Kaizer Chiefs manager Bobby Motaung says the Phefeni Glamour Boys are not feeling any pressure of surrendering their title for the second consecutive season to Mamelodi Sundowns.
The Soweto giants are yet to record a victory, let alone find the back of the net in the league since resuming from the festive break which led to their first defeat of the season to SuperSport United last week.
Motaung told Sport24 in an exclusive interview on Tuesday that their loss to Matsatsantsa did not dent their fourth PSL title ambitions as they are still at the summit of the log.
“At the moment we are focusing on the CAF Champions league,” Motaung told Sport24.
“We are playing in Botswana this weekend, that’s where we are focusing on now.
“But I can attest to you my brother that there is no pressure at all within our camp.
“How can we feel under pressure were as we are leading the log by so many points?
“Yes we have lost to SuperSport United recently in the league, that’s the nature of football, you win some and you lose some.
“But we can’t be discouraged by just one loss, so please call me after the derby maybe things would be different then.
“But for now we there is no pressure on Kaizer Chiefs.”
Chiefs are currently leading joint second-placed Sundowns and Wits by 10 points. The Brazilians do however have a game in hand.
It remains to be seen if the Amakhosi will hold on to their lead and clinch the 2014/15 Absa Premiership crown.
