The Premier Soccer League title race is coming near its finale, Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns the solely teams eligible to elevate the Absa Premiership trophy. Amakhosi have led the standings for over 340 days, but only lead the standings on goal distinction heading into the last match. Former Bafana Bafana captain Aaron Mokoena suggested that the Soweto giants will be feeling extra strain than Masandawana, who have already won silverware this season and will function in the Nedbank Cup final.
Speaking to the SL Podcast on The Big Interview, ‘Mbazo’ stated, “For Kaizer Chiefs, it’s a lot of pressure, whether or not they win the league or not, they’ve tasted it. And for [them] it’s been a while, they want it more than any team. It’s all about whether or not they will turn up on the day.
“At times, from a footballer’s factor of view, when you’re looking at games, and you see that you’ll be enjoying weak sides, mentally you get a bit sleepy. You have a tendency to undermine these gamers and teams, and those are hazardous teams.”
