Arthur Zwane Revealed Important Information About The Title Race
‘It appears out of reach, but anything may happen,’ the Amakhosi assistant coach added.
Amakhosi still have an opportunity to catch Sundowns and win the DStv Premiership this season, according to Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach Arthur Zwane.
The Chiefs resumed to training this week in preparation for their first game of the year, which will be against TS Galaxy in the Nedbank Cup last 32 in early February.
Amakhosi will thereafter restart their Premiership campaign at Cape Town City on February 15. Chiefs are 16 points behind leaders Sundowns, and even if they do have two games in hand, two of those might be turned into 3-0 losses after the Premier Soccer League charged them with failing to attend games against Cape Town City and Golden Arrows in December.
“Our aim is to push in the league games as well,” said Zwane.
“We hope results will be in our favour and we will be there at the end of the season, competing for the number one spot.
“That is the ultimate goal for us. It looks out of reach, but we still believe anything can happen. It isn’t over until the fat lady sings.”
Chiefs may have a better chance of winning the Nedbank Cup if they can get past a Galaxy club that famously stunned Amakhosi in the Nedbank Cup final in 2019.
The Galaxy are now in last place in the Premiership, but Zwane has been pleased by Sean Ramovic, the Rockets’ Serbian coach.
“We know we are playing a very difficult team, Galaxy have a coach who is doing well, you can see they are playing from the back and trying to connect with the midfield and forwards,” added Zwane.
“Their structure looks solid and they are going to be a difficult team to play, but I think we will be equal to the task.”
