Radebe: Chiefs need this title more than anyone else

Former Bafana Bafana captain Lucas Radebe says Kaizer Chiefs will be tested in their chase for the Premiership title but he believes they can emerge victorious.

Amakhosi are desperate to end their five-year trophy drought and have a golden opportunity as they lead the league standings by four points over Mamelodi Sundowns, who have a game in hand.

Chiefs have eight league games left to play, starting with Bidvest Wits on Wednesday August 12, and concluding with Baroka FC on September 5.

"I think the [Chiefs] players are prepared and I think mentally they have to get ready to start where they left off‚" said Radebe as per Sowetan Live.

"They need this title more than anyone else and I think they're capable of winning it. To see how they've played and how they've conducted themselves up until now‚ it's been absolutely great.

"Not forgetting that Pirates‚ Sundowns and other teams are right there behind them‚ Chiefs will be pushed to realise this great moment of winning the championship. So it's going to be tough but I think they're capable of winning it.

"Never mind Covid-19‚ we're all in the same boat. It's a matter of coming back and focus on what we want to achieve as a club."

He added: "I think every Chiefs fan is excited about the prospect of the club winning the league title this season. Looking at how they've been playing‚ they've been working hard to make things right."
