Tovey – It Shows The Club Can Still Do it
Former Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs captain Neil Tovey says beating Mamelodi Sundowns this past weekend will be a big boost for Gavin Hunt’s team ahead of this week’s CAF Champions League draw.
Tovey was speaking to Chiefs website about Freedom Day, but also touched on Chiefs’ historic qualification for the last eight of the CAFCL.
The man who famously raised the 1996 Africa Cup of Nations trophy in victory, says beating the DStv Premiership leaders, and fellow CAFCL quarter-finals shows the club can still perform on the big stage, despite all the difficulties they have faced this season.
“It’s going to be a tall order, but when it gets to the knockout stages you start doing things in your mind that translates to the pitch,” Tovey told the Kaizer Chiefs website.
“Beating Mamelodi Sundowns this weekend was a big morale-boosting win for the club ahead of the CAF Champions League draw this week.”
“It shows the club can still do it and perform on the big stage. So, my message to the club and to the players, is go out and enjoy the occasion and the experience.”
“Their concentration levels need to be top, top, top, but they need to go out there and do what they know they’re good at and anything is possible.”
