Chaka Chaka backs Birds for glory


“I believe Swallows have a great chance to lift up the trophy,” 'Chaka Chaka' tells

“They are good on attack and the left side of the midfield is very strong. However, they must not undermine SuperSport United. They are a team of hard workers and it’s difficult to target any one player that might be a threat.

“And I believe the Swallows management have put great incentives in place that should be enough to motivate the players to win the trophy on Saturday.”

He adds: “I pick Katlego Mashego and David Mathebula to shine for Moroka Swallows.”

Mpondo reveals his great memories of playing for the Dube Birds in cup finals.

“It was great playing twice in the Bob Save Final,” he says. “I think we played Jomo Cosmos in 1989 and Kaizer Chiefs in 1991. The most memorable one was against Cosmos. We had been to finals before that one but failed to win, but that time we made sure against a Cosmos side which had great players like Chippa Masinga and Eugene Zwane.”
