EXTRA TIME: Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs stars look forward to big game

The anticipation is rising for one of the biggest games of the season, kicking off in the PSL on Saturday night

Amakhosi are out to settle the score against Mamelodi Sundowns in the Premiership on Saturday night at the FNB Stadium.

Kick-off is at 8:15pm.  On the log standings, Sundowns occupy the fifth spot with 34 points from 17 league matches and a win will see them leap-frogging Amakhosi to the fourth spot.

Here's what the coaches had to say before the big night.


Steve Komphela

“As a coach you are judged on results, but still people are coming to the stadium for a show. We are happy the Bafana players came back injury free,” said Komphela.

“Sundowns and Chiefs, it will be a match of small margins, I foresee a very tough match.

“We will give them the respect they deserve. We are ready. The funny thing is that when we have to play Sundowns there has to be a break."


Pitso Mosimane

“I prefer to have our international players to go and play out, it helped us, gave us experience,” said Mosimane.

“This is the time for smash and grabs. We have nine games in April, this is the time I ask for forgiveness, results are more important .

“We can't train tomorrow (Friday), it is the calendar, no excuses. But all that’s important is to try and get three points‚ and it’s not going to be easy because at this point in time we are the underdogs.

“We envy Chiefs, we wish we could also win five in a row.”
