Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says playing Kaizer Chiefs is like playing against Bafana Bafana.
The Brazilians meet Amakhosi in a League clash at Loftus Stadium at 7.30pm and Mosimane admits this is an acid test for his boys.
“We are in for a big game. We are playing against a good team … if you look at the back five from the goalkeeper it is a team in Bafana Bafana, hey. There is no-one [in Chiefs’ back five who hasn’t played for Bafana]. If you look at the midfield it is also Bafana and if you look at the strikers, there is Bafana Bafana. So you’ve got to understand who we are playing against,” Mosimane says.
“There are six to seven Chiefs players who are prominent in Bafana. So we are in for a very, very hard game so we must double our efforts.”
In the same breath, however, Mosimane insisted that Sundowns will put up a fight.
“We will fight and I believe so because we have prepared the team well. I hope the players don’t let us down. I trust my players and we will give Chiefs a run for their money. We need to move up the log,” ‘Jingles’ says.
