Hunt Says City Deserve A Lot Of Respect

Kaizer Chiefs Head Coach Gavin Hunt says their opponent today, Cape Town City, is a good football side, and they aren’t to be taken lightly.

Chiefs are in Cape Town to take on City at the Cape Town Stadium in a DStv Premiership clash at 5pm.

Hunt says City will be even stronger with their new signing, Justin Shonga, who joined from TTM this week.

“They are a good football side. They are a difficult side to play against and a very well-run club that needs a lot of respect,” Hunt told the Chiefs’ website. 

“The recent signing of Justin Shonga is a great move for them. He is someone many teams would have taken if they had the opportunity. He’s good striker, good finisher, quick and sharp. He will definitely add value for them.”

“It’s very difficult since the start of the year. We have played a lot of games in a short space of time. We play Tuesday again after Saturday’s game. It is part and parcel of what is ahead of us.”

While Khama Billiat has been confirmed to be out for two months, there is better news on the injury front.

“Lebogang Manyama is back in training, he is still not yet match fit but it’s great to have more options. Erick Mathoho is observing Covid-19 Protocols and is in quarantine after attending the funeral of his late father. Willard Katsande has also started training and Reeve Frosler is running around but no contact training as yet. The right back position was a big problem for us, but Siyabonga Ngezana has done very well there so far.”
