Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs legend Robson Muchichwa admits he isn't feeling very confident about his former team's chances in the upcoming Soweto derby against Orlando Pirates.
Muchichwa is backing Pirates to come out on top in Saturday's massive clash at FNB Stadium because they currently boast the better side.
"Yeah no, it's a big one man, it's a big one," he told KickOff website.
"But one is worried because one team, one side is not doing well. Yeah, I'm just worried about that. You know football is a funny game, you understand mfethu [my brother]? Because now it's another game and anything can happen, you understand? Because no one can predict ukuthi uzowina [you are going to win]. But yeah, it's a funny game, anything can be possible.
"I think for me it's not up to the coach [for Chiefs to get a win], not up to the management, it's up to the players now, they need to pull up their socks. They need to know why they are there. They need to die for the team, double up the effort because at the end of the day you can continue chasing coaches, pointing to the management.
"You know to be there signed by Kaizer Chiefs, only to put that signature... that's an honour for you as a player and when you go to the pitch you need to go and die. It's a team with a huge history behind it so it's so difficult to maintain that history.
"For me it's a challenge for these young boys, they need to maintain that thing, it has been happening for years now. I think at the moment when we talk of Pirates they've got a team, when we talk of Chiefs yes they've got a team, they are going to disturb some of the teams in the league this and that... they will never win a league. That's not a team to win a league for me."
Kick-off is at 15:30 on Saturday at FNB Stadium.
