No Italy trip for Kaizer Chiefs

Absa Premiership and Nedbank cup Champions Kaizer Chiefs will not go to Italy for their pre-season tour

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter confirmed to Isolezwe that his club will not travel, just a few days after the AmaKhosi told Goal that the trip was in the hands of the club coach.

"It is true, we will not be going to Italy anymore. We will do our preparations here in South Africa. We will use different types of competitions to prepare ourselves so that by the time comes, we are ready to defend the league title and the competition title," said Baxter.

Kaizer Chiefs is now expected to play in the Gauteng Cup which they will be defending and then the Carling Black Label against Orlando Pirates on the 27th of July.

In the MTN Cup they will battle with University of Pretoria who they have never beaten in their history so far. Baxter said they are looking forward to this tournament.

"It is not going to be an easy encounter since Tuks have always given us a challenge. I will never forget how we were eliminated from this competition."
