Kaizer Chiefs captain Willard Katsande has made a bold claim to the Absa Premiership title with just four games remaining in the campaign.
Chiefs took control of the title race as early as 10 August 2019 and have maintained top spot on the table for over a year – a historic feat by a long stretch, which was of course aided by the unprecedented four-month suspension of football due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
While they now hold the record for the longest run as log leaders, Amakhosi have not yet clinched the all-important piece of silverware, which has eluded them for the last five years.
The Glamour Boys next face defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns, who trail them by three points with four games to go, and Katsande is adamant they will forge ahead and claim what they have been working towards since the beginning of the season.
"We've been top of the log from last year August until now, and we're still going to stay there and we're still going to get what we want, which is the league [trophy]," the 34-year-old enforcer told the media ahead of Thursday evening's encounter.
"We are not moved or shaken by any results [elsewhere], because the only thing we're going to focus on is what's happening in our house, we don't want to focus on what's happening at the next house.
"So, the most important thing is to control each and every game we are playing as a team and as a collective."
