Cape Town - Former Bloemfontein Celtic captain John Maduka has
given some advice to the Phunya Sele Sele players ahead of their Kaizer Chiefs
According to Celtic’s official website, Maduka says that he
recalls the old battles against Amakhosi in his playing days.
“Celtic’s game against Kaizer Chiefs have for years produced
sparkling performances and the atmosphere experienced even days before the game
forces players to be upbeat and ready to contest," Maduka said.
“I recall one cup game we played against them during the era
of Paul Dolezer as our coach.
“There was fierce battle on and off the field, after we
scored the winning goal their supporters started removing seats with anger and
clearly, they hate losing to us.”
Maduka agrees that this weekend’s game will be entertaining
and urges the Celtic players not to be afraid.
“The odds are stacked against us, looking at the stats but
the positive sprit reigning in our camp since the arrival of Serame Letsoaka
gives me confidence.
“My advice to our players is to relax and play their usually
pressing game without fear. Showing respect to a team like Chiefs will work
“Wishing them all the best for this must win encounter.”
Celtic hosts Chiefs at the Free State Stadium and the game
kicks-off at 15:00.
