Larsen: Bloemfontein Celtic want to make history against Kaizer Chiefs

Bloemfontein Celtic coach Clinton Larsen is determined to make history, but must first beat Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday night

The Celtic coach had told that he is still confident his team will win the Nedbank Cup despite losing to Chiefs in their last league match.


Larsen then expressed his views to the Bloemfontein clubs official site.


“We want to make history and become the first Celtic team to not only reach two major finals but also to win them. That is what we want to achieve and it is our most fervent intention to first get past the Chiefs hurdle.


“We have only lost two games since the turn of this year, against Platinum Stars and Chiefs, so we are in decent form but after a few disappointing draws I believe we are due for a win,” said Larsen.


Despite the mere fact that Chiefs will be missing some of their major players who are out due to suspensions and injuries, the coach said he believes Chiefs will still pose a challenge to them.


“No, I don’t believe a team like Chiefs will ever struggle with regard to depth and quality. They  have nine Bafana Bafana players and can easily fill the spots left behind.


“They may change their formation and tactics a bit, but they will not be weakened,” said Larsen.
