All Stars were pitted against Chiefsin the draw in Sandton last night, and the Amakhosi faithful will be hoping to avoid further embarrassment after being dumped out of the competition by Sello Chokoe’s men last season.
But All Stars general manager Faeez Dulvie tells KickOff.com that his players are looking at making names for themselves by causing a major upset against the Soweto giants.
“We are very excited to play a big team like Kaizer Chiefs,” he says. “It will obviously be tough, but anything is possible as was proven last season and hopefully we can do the same.”
Chiefs coach Vladimir Vermezovic is keen to avoid another embarrassing defeat and has vowed that his team will approach the match with the respect it deserves.
“Every game for is important,” he says. “Cup games are always interesting; it’s good to see the small teams motivated to play against the big teams. We will try our best to do better in this competition than we did last season.”
Cape Town All Stars will be playing in the Nedbank Cup for the first time after forming in 2010.
