“This is our home game and I think it is important for us to win every time we play at home. FNB Stadium has been our home and for us as a team, we have to collect maximum points if it’s a league game or to win if it’s cup game,” Letsholonyane told Goal.

Letsholonyane has always played his heart out whenever Chiefs played Pirates, and he says it is always an honour for him to be playing in the Soweto Derby.  

“A derby is always special, because of the fact that these are two South African giants and it is always nice to win against Pirates irrespective of how many I have played before,” added Letsholonyane.
