Heric – I Will Put All My Weapons Out

Chippa United Head Coach Vladislav Heric says he expects it to be a tough Nedbank Cup final against Tshakhuma at the Free State Stadium on Saturday.

Heric, who is unbeaten in the league since joining Chippa, will be in charge for the first time in the cup competition, after Dan Malesela had led the team to the last four, while assistant Siyabulela Gwambi was in charge for the semi-final.

It is the first final for both teams, and lifting first ever silverware will be a big motivation for the teams.

Heric says it might not be the most attractive game, as both teams, who are battling it out at the bottom of the DStv Premiership, will probably not want to risk too much.

However the Serbia-born coach says he will be doing everything he can to win the game.

“I expect a very tough game like every final is, so final is 50-50 game and it will be very tough,” Heric said at the pre match presser.

“Might not be that attractive football because everyone wants to win. So a lot of doors will be closed, not too much risk, you definitely have to go for result nothing else.”

“But I believe that people will enjoy the football if they watch on TV, and they will get some probably a couple of good moves.”

“We must also take into consideration, that both of us we fighting to escape relegation.”

“So I don’t know how many weapons we’ll pull out for the next game, but from my side I will put all my weapons out to try to win this game.”
