Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs legend and striker Pollen Ndlanya says that his former club will want to win the MTN8 Cup at all costs ahead of the second leg of the MTN8 semi-final against Bloemfontein Celtic.

The Amakhosi veteran said he knows coach Clinton Larsen very well and knows he is a good coach who strives on improving the quality of his team with every game they play.

“Amakhosi will want to win this by all costs,” he told Sport24.

“I know Clint, I played with him and he is a very good coach. 

“I know for sure he wants to improve in most areas and you can see that. 

“He obviously has a different approach and he will be very cautious when taking on Chiefs; and it’s not easy to play away. 

“He will come in with a strong defensive side who will try to cause trouble for the opposition. 

“He has got some quality players and not undermining his side at all, even with these new and young players he has brought it. 

Ndlanya said though that he is just hoping for a good game with lots of goals and wished both sides the best of luck. 

“I just want to wish both sides good luck as it won’t be easy but it will be an interesting match to watch. 

“I am crossing fingers to see a lot of goals from either team but I still say Chiefs has this one; I know how they are with cup games because I played for them and they are very dominant on the field with this."

Amakhosi meet Phunya Sele Sele at the FNB stadium for the second leg of the MTN8 semi-finals.

Kick-off set for 20:15
