Kungwane: Chiefs should look out for Bacela

Kaizer Chiefs legend Shakes Kungwane believes that new Orlando Pirates striker Lennox Bacela will be the man to watch when the Soweto giants meet on Saturday

Kungwane told Goal, that Bacela has adapted well at Orlando Pirates, and that Chiefs should not underestimate his threat.

“Well, I think Bacela is in good form and I am sure he is going to give Chiefs some hard time. But, again, Daine Klate will also come to the party this time as they have been performing well,” he said.

Despite his high expectations, Kungwane is also worried that the teams might not play an open game since it is a two-leg fixture.

“My only wish is that both the teams could attack and go all-out. I know they would have been given instructions by their coaches, but it would be nice to see players expressing themselves with the ball,” said Kungwane who was known for playing entertaining football.

Kungwane believes that this match will be the one where Knowledge Musona will have to impress.

“I think there will be lot of pressure on him, and he must use this match to score and get his fans happy for him. Siphiwe Tshabalala is one player who has grown and matured enough to lead Chiefs to victory, as well as Itumeleng Khune,” he said.

Although the legend did not want to be specific which team will win the match, he said there wouldn't be much between the teams.

“I doubt will we will see more than two goals per side because the team that scores first will want to go back and defend. I am hoping that they beat my expectations and make the match a real ‘Wafa Wafa’,” he said.
