Ernst Middendorp thinks that other clubs in South Africa would be happy to be in Kaizer Chiefs’ shoes going into this weekend’s Nedbank Cup final.
The Glamour Boys go up against TS Galaxy on Saturday night as they look to end the season on a high after a very underwhelming Absa Premiership campaign, but they will be very wary of the potential banana skin that comes with facing a side from the National First Division in such a big game.
Chiefs last won the Nedbank back in 2013 with an extra time victory over SuperSport United in Stuart Baxter’s first campaign at the club, and Middendorp knows that they need to perform if they’re going to end the longest trophy drought in Amakhosi history.
Speaking in a video on the club’s official YouTube page, the German said, “We have the chance… I think a lot of other teams - bigger teams - would’ve been happy to have this option on Saturday to be playing this cup final. We are in, and it’s up to us.
“If a team is in a final, it doesn’t matter which league, then you must be aware that there’s a certain quality… It’s all about how we are handling it, and how we are committed going into it and being well prepared.”
But can they put that preparation into action? Middendorp thinks so, adding, “So far, in particular in these cup games, we have done it, we have really. Otherwise we would not be in this cup final, and that’s what we’re doing again.”
Chiefs and Galaxy will lock horns at 19h00 on Saturday at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
