Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Tsepo Masilela has warned the
Amakhosi that the race for the league title is not over until the fat lady
Chiefs currently lead Sundowns by 10 points with 10 wins
from their opening 12 matches. But Masilela, who now plies his trade with
AmaZulu, recalls in the 2013/2014 season that the Amakhosi led the Brazilians
by the same amount of points but still let the title slip from their grasp.
“I have experience in what I have to say about the PSL
title. You cannot just celebrate because Chiefs know they are followed by
Sundowns on the log table,” Masilela told Isolezwe.
“If I remember very well during the 2013/14 season, we led
Sundowns with the same number of points, but things changed towards the last
game of the season where we failed to lift the title – Sundowns eventually won
“The fans cannot just start to celebrate because there are
so many games to play until the end of the season.
“Sundowns are always a threat if they are behind the log
leaders. Everybody was thinking Chiefs will win the title but Sundowns
surprised many and won it," added the 34-year-old.
Amakhosi are back in action this weekend against
Bloemfontein Celtic at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
Kick-off is at 20:00 on Saturday.
