I have quite a good history in Durban, I want it to continue. I want to leave this place after the game with good memories once again,” said the Bafana Bafana first choice goalkeeper.
He added that he don’t doubt the quality of their current squad and believes that the mood in the camp tells that they are hungry for silverwares.
“Every team that I have played with since 2004 it has always had quality in it. And there’s no difference with our current squad. We have a very young team with ambitious players. We have guys that are eager to succeed in life, and myself as a Captain I have the responsibility to lead by examples. And we are positive that we will win trophies this season,” concluded the Amakhosi Captain.
Chiefs have managed to collect 14 points from seven matches, six points ahead of Baroka F.C who drew their last match 2-2 against their Polokwane rivals, Polokwane City.
