Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs communications manager Vina Maphosa believes the club will be competitive despite having no coach ahead of the Shell Cup against Mamelodi Sundowns.

Chiefs are yet to appoint a new man in charge for 2018/19 after previous mentor Steve Komphela stepped down towards the end of the last campaign.

Interim manager Patrick Mabedi remains in charge as Amakhosi continue to search for a new man to take over at Naturena on a permanent basis.

As such, it appears the Glamour Boys will face Downs on 21 July in the inaugural pre-season competition with Mabedi still at the helm.

Nonetheless, Maphosa maintains that this will not be an issue and the side have enough in the leadership department to defeat the Brazilians.

"Coming to the pitch, we know that it is a national question, once you find a matter becoming a national question, you must know that the team is very huge,” he said as quoted by Soccer Laduma website.

"Chiefs is very high at every corner. I mean old and young, at bus stops, at taverns and even at churches, the pastors, the preachers are asking about the Chiefs coach.

"That shows the importance of the brand and the importance of the club, just let me not waste your time to mention that, be it a coach, be it a Patrick Mabedi, Chiefs will be led, and Chiefs will contest, will compete on the day."
