Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs team manager Bobby Motaung has warned the club's
supporters to wait until the PSL trophy is in the trophy cabinet before
starting any celebrations.
According to the Football411 website, Amakhosi are seven points clear at the top of the standings with

of people were saying we were buying too many defenders. The very same
defenders have been in and out of the team because of injuries, so
imagine if we didn't go out to strengthen this department.
"We knew it was going to be difficult based on our experience in this game and we made sure we are covered," Motaung added.
