Going into tomorrow’s Final against Orlando Pirates at Coca-Cola Park, Spurs are yet to win a game, having lost to Kaizer Chiefs in the opening match in Polokwane, and then drawing with the Buccaneers at Mbombela Stadium.
Jenas, who was part of the Tottenham squad that toured this country in 2007, says the high level of play has not come as a surprise.
“I was here a few years ago and was surprised then how high the level was,” he says. “But this time I was not so surprised. There are some quality players in the League here. The players are comfortable on the ball and they don’t panic.”
Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has been equally impressed, especially with what Pirates produced in Mbombela.
“This tour has been fantastic preparation,” he says. “Both teams have been excellent, and Pirates the other night played football of the highest level. They made us work hard to stay in the game.
“I’m looking forward to another exciting game tomorrow, a skillful game, which will be a good showcase for football in South Africa.”
