Kaizer Chiefs eye Carling Knockout Cup glory
Kaizer Chiefs will return to action this evening when they host AmaZulu FC in the first round of the inaugural Carling Knockout Cup.
The Glamour Boys will be eyeing the newly formed tournament as the ideal opportunity to end their lengthy trophy drought.
Molefi Ntseki’s side were dumped out of the MTN8 cup at the semi-final stage but all focus now turns to the Knockout Cup.
AmaZulu seek revenge
Standing in their way is an AmaZulu side looking for revenge.
Pablo Franco’s side were beaten 3-0 by the Amakhosi in their league fixture earlier in the season and Franco is out to restore some pride to the club.
Today’s Carling Knockout Cup round of 16 clash at the FNB Stadium gets underway at 19:00 SAST.
The match will NOT be broadcasted on SABC’s regular channels however SuperSport PSL will be televising the game.
Ntseki on the pressure
Kaizer Chiefs head coach Molefi Ntseki has opened up on the pressure he is under to deliver success.
“I think we started this season with so much pressure, especially coming from the previous seasons, not only from last season,” Ntseki said.
“Yes, the pressure comes from yesterday, not necessarily today.
But that’s because of the history of the club, the background of the club.
“But when you take this position, you have to know that there’ll be pressure and I welcome that.”
