Kunene: I didn’t respect Chiefs ‘defence

Polokwane- Baroka FC midfielder Mxolisi Kunene said he was brave enough not to respect the Kaizer Chiefs defence which is why he managed to squeeze the ball into the back of the net following his tremendous run from half way through the field in their 2-all stalemate.

Baroka came from behind two times to level matters with the Amakhosi in an entertaining Absa Premiership clash played at the Peter Mokaba on Saturday. 

Substitute Kunene was on target, with a contender for a goal of the month, for the Limpopo based side alongside Sepana Letsoalo while Bernard Parker and Eric Mathoho scored for the Phefeni Glamour Boys.

Kunene said his coach, Kgoloko Thobejane, instructed him to run at the Amakhosi defenders when he came on in the second half and he did exactly that and the coach’s belief in him paid off. 

“The coach told me to play as a number 10 (left winger) when I came on,” insisted Kunene.

“He told me to take the ball and run at the Kaizer Chiefs players and that showed that he believes in me. I did exactly what he said and it worked out for me and the team.

“I was brave enough to take them on. I didn’t respect them because they play for Chiefs, no. I just did my best and the rest is history.”
