Cape Town - After watching his side beat Bidvest Wits in the Telkom Knockout over the weekend, Free State Stars head coach Ernst Middendorp believes is side is capable of beating anyone.
Ea Lla Koto upset the form books over the weekend by claiming a surprise 1-0 win over the Clever Boys to advance to the quarter final of the Telkom Knockout.
While some managers may have balked at the seemingly tough draw against Mamelodi Sundowns in the next round, Middendorp has gone the other way, saying their win over Wits proves they can beat any team in the country.
His confidence comes from more than just the win at the weekend however; he remains unbeaten at the club since being appointed in August, claiming three wins from the four games he has been in charge.
"I am very confident in this team, if not arrogant, that we can beat any team that is put in front of us," Middendorp told the official PSL website.
"I would like to give a huge compliment to the team the players showed great commitment to get us this win and for that I am happy.
"We have a number of youngsters who have shown hunger and a will to win. The players have really stepped up for us to get this. I will be smiling all the way to the quarter-finals," he concluded.
