Motaung eager for epic clash

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs marketing director Jessica Motaung insists Wednesday night's Premiership clash with Mamelodi Sundowns won't be about revenge.

This, after Sundowns humbled Chiefs 4-1 two weeks ago at Loftus Versveld to dump the Soweto giants out of the MTN8 Cup.

The Amakhosi have since rebounded from their mauling to the Brazilians, with the Glamour Boys having kicked off their new Premier Soccer League campaign in fine fashion last Saturday.

Stuart Baxter's charges ran rough-shod over AmaZulu in Durban last weekend, as Chiefs striker Bernard Parker helped himself to four goals in their 6-0 thrashing of Usuthu.

Motaung, whose brother Bobby was one of three men arrested in connection with a multi-million rand fraud case earlier this week, believes next week's midweek clash has an historic status in South African football.

"The game against Mamelodi Sundowns is a massive game for everyone associated with the Club. The game is about pride and also reclaiming our glory," she said in an official club statement.

"The game is less about our defeat in the MTN8. The game did leave scars on our hearts but we have moved on and now we look at keeping the momentum following our comprehensive win against AmaZulu.

"Games between the two sides have always been exciting affairs since the days of Jeff Butler and Screamer Tshabalala calling shots in the touchline while the likes of Donald Khuse and Ernest Mtawali were thrilling fans with their artistry on the pitch.

"The likes of Shane McGregor, Bennet Masinga left a mark with their goal scoring prowess and the banter between the Louis Tshoakane and Alex Shokoane ahead of the games can never be forgotten.

"Sundowns will be the first to admit that we have an edge against them due to our superior record against them but we all know that records before these games go out the window.

"The mood in the camp is high and we are ready to welcome Mamelodi Sundowns."
