Soccer legend backs Chiefs to win PSL title

Kaizer Chiefs legend Pollen Ndlanya believes his former club will win this season’s PSL title.

  “They are consistent and their strikers are scoring goals. I see no reason why they can’t finish on top of the log,” Ndlanya said.

  Ndlanya, who also played for rivals Orlando Pirates, said Chiefs have the upper hand at this stage. “They are playing as a team and there’s also competition among the players. They don’t win games with just the starting line-up but they also have players who can come off the bench and change the complexion of the game.”

 “Obviously, the league is a marathon and Chiefs have to maintain their form throughout the season. They will also face difficult times but for now, they are consistent and getting the points. I believe they will keep doing well until the end,” he added.

  Ndlanya however says Sundowns may mount a serious challenge for the PSL title, which they have won a record nine times since its inception in 1996.

  “You can’t rule Sundowns out. They are a good team with a great passing game, but the opposition knows how to frustrate Sundowns. They just sit back and play on the counter-attack. Right now they are not convincing. They are struggling and they are too predictable,” he said.
