Frosler – It’s A Very Exciting Experience
Kaizer Chiefs defender Reeve Frosler says the club’s run in the CAF Champions League has been personally a very exciting experience.
Chiefs are one step away from the final as they take a 1-0 lead into Saturday’s semi-final leg, after a courageous win in Morocco last weekend.
Just like it has been for Chiefs, this is the first time Frosler has been part of a team that has reached and gone beyond the group stages.
Frosler says the first leg in Morocco was very challenging, and he’s expecting another big game on Saturday in the second leg.
“Going to Morocco was challenging alone, so we expect another challenging game here in South Africa,” Frosler told the Chiefs media department.
“Ja, it’s gonna be another, another good fight for us, another tough challenge that lies ahead in our CAF journey, another one. So we’ll embrace it. And just do the best of our ability again.
“It’s been a good week so far. Fortunately, we had a good week to prepare, and get ready for the game. So ja, preparations have been going well so far this week. And ja, we look forward to the game on Saturday.”
Frosler says while they are aware of the media frenzy around Chiefs’ potential reaching the final, he says they are trying to remain focussed.
“It’s difficult, but you’ve just got to focus on the game and not worry about external things, or what people are saying externally,” the Gqeberha-born player said.
“It is a very big game for us. If you look at what we’ve achieved so far, we’ve done well, but we’ve got an opportunity now to go even further. So we’ve just got to stay focused, and try and go all the way.”
The former Bidvest Wits player says that this CAF season has also been big for him personally.
“Personally, for me, it’s a very exciting experience,” he continued.
“It’s my first time playing in the group stages and now going beyond the group stages onto making all the way to the semi final. It’s a big achievement for me personally.
“And I’ve been granted opportunity to go even further now with the game on Saturday. So I’ll just keep my head down and keep working hard and you never know where we can end up come Saturday.”
