Absa Premiership

Hadebe: Chiefs have to beat AmaZulu

2018-03-16 14:48

Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs young defender Teenage Hadebe says that beating AmaZulu in Saturday's Premiership encounter is important in order to make up for losing to Orlando Pirates.

The 22-year-old has become a regular starter under coach Steve Komphela during the second half of the campaign in particular, with the Zimbabwe international making 12 appearances while contributing to eight clean sheets. 

Nonetheless, the player feels he has adjusted to life in the league and is focused on winning.

He told the club's official website: "The intensity of the game is much higher in South Africa compared to Zimbabwe, it’s faster as well, so I had to adapt in the beginning, but I am happy that I keep on improving with every match. 

"As a defender, you never want to concede goals, and we are frustrated if we do. But the most important priority is that we win." 

Speaking about the clash with Usuthu this weekend at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, he added: "They have a good side, however, we are still disappointed with the Pirates defeat, despite our win over Stellenbosch FC last week. 

"We want to make it up to our supporters and that means that we will have to beat AmaZulu."
