Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp insists his
charges must keep working hard to improve despite enjoying a strong lead at the
top of the Absa Premiership.
Amakhosi are nine points clear of second-placed Mamelodi
Sundowns after the opening 13 games of the league campaign and Middendorp has
been impressed by the progress he has seen.
However, the German tactician insists there is still much
room for improvement.
"The players must get a lot of credit in addition, as
we have always benchmarked ourselves on our last performance," Middendorp
told the club's official website.
"We have not concentrated on any opponent but on
getting better every game, and we have done a good job thus far by continuous
self-improvement and we will look to continue doing so as we go forward."
Middendorp clinched a third consecutive Coach of the Month
award after overseeing his side's eighth consecutive win in the league and gave
credit to his backroom staff for the achievement.
"We are very fortunate that we have a very specialised
and professional technical team at the club, the group works well together and
complement one another," added Middendorp.
"All the members of the technical staff are experts in
their field, and they bring this to the team which has resulted in the success
that we have had."
