Sandile Zuke: We are prepared

Posted: 3 August 2014 Time: 12:31

Mpumalanga Black Aces midfielder Sandile Zuke is confident that the on-going player exodus at their camp hasn't hampered with their preparations for Sunday’s MTN 8 clash against Kaizer Chiefs.

AmaZayoni endured a dream spell in their debut top-flight season and they deservedly finished inside the top eight bracket.

The Clive Barker-coached outfit is amongst the busiest in the current transfer window, but Zuke is confident that they will put out a capable XI at the FNB Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

"We've prepared the same way we want to play, we are playing Chiefs and we already know it wont be an easy task but we are confident that we will come out victorious," he tells

"We know we are not the same team as last season, we lost a few players, but we also signed a lot of capable players."

"We've played enough friendly matches with the new guys and I believe everybody will be ready. We beat Chiefs last season but this is a new season and that is now all behind us."

Aces will kick off their new campaign without a number of their standout players from last season, namely, Themba Zwane, Abel Mabaso, Abia Nale and Thabo Qalinge.

Zuke, though, is adamant that the Mpumalanga outfit has signed enough quality to replace those that left.

I think the rules should change about the winners of the league and Nedbank. It must be a must to participate in CAF Competitions otherwise you forfeit that position if you do not participate and it gets given to the second, or third winner including the price money and cup. If Chiefs wins the league worth R 10m with a cup and does not participate, The price and money must go to the second position who becomes now the new league champs because they can participate. Even in the beauty contest if the Queen can not fulfil her duties, the first princess is now given those duties and becomes now the new Queen. The first Queen losses all her prices and crown.
