Why Judas always scores against Chiefs

Premiership

Maritzburg United striker Judas Moseamedi has opened up about his impressive goalscoring record against Kaizer Chiefs this season.

The 26-year-old has netted three goals in three games against Chiefs during the 2019/20 campaign, with his infamous brace having broken Amakhosi hearts as the Soweto giants were sent packing from the Telkom Knockout semi-finals in December.

While there have been suggestions he's the type of player that only rises on the big occasions, the former Cape Town City man stopped short of denying it while adding there's an element of luck towards his recent displays against them.

"I hold nothing against Kaizer Chiefs," he tells KickOff.com. "It's just that you know when you are playing, sometimes you get luckier in certain games and there are other ones where you are unnoticed.

"So, as players there's a time where you perform and obviously the next game people expect you to perform more than you did in the last one, or maybe equal that particular performance, only to discover that you are unlucky and your things don't go accordingly.

"Then that's where they start judging you saying 'Hey what is happening? It seems he only performs when he is playing against certain teams.'"

Moseamedi went on to dispel the notion that his childhood affiliation with their fierce rivals Orlando Pirates - whom he's been linked with in recent weeks - have something to do with his sparkling displays.

"I grew up supporting Pirates, like the whole family was [supporting] Pirates, but that's not the reason I perform well against [Chiefs]," he adds.

"I played against Chiefs before while still at Aces and we drew that game, and also at Cape Town City... like it becomes luckier. In some games, the mood just changes and you put more than 100%."
