Mamelodi Sundowns are not unbeatable, says Kaizer Chiefs coach Molefi Ntseki

Molefi Ntseki says Kaizer Chiefs will look to exploit Mamelodi Sundowns’ weaknesses in MTN8 semi-finals.

Amakhosi have endured a difficult start to the season with two wins, one draw and two losses from their opening five league games.

The head coach managed to engineer wins over AmaZulu and Stellenbosch in the club’s last two league games alongside overcoming Cape Town City in their quarter-final cup tie.

Now ahead of facing league leaders Downs in the first leg of their MTN8 semi, Ntseki has challenged his team to write a ‘new history’ by recording a big victory.

He said on IOL: “What’s important for Kaizer Chiefs is to continue working on the three C’s – Calm, Control and Courageous. But the most important thing is confidence.

“We are not reading much into the past but we are looking much into writing a new history. This new history must come with a lot of challenges and personality expressions.”

Ntseki added: “I keep on saying, nobody will ever put you in the starting XI – you must put yourself (there). And that is a very fair competition that we have at the club.

“And that’s why you see everybody is looking forward to being in the starting XI – even those that are on the bench and grandstands.

“Any team has its own weakness, and I don’t think Sundowns are different to any team that we have in the PSL.

“In possession, they are very dangerous. But the question is, when they lose possession, which areas can you exploit? And that’s what we’ll be working on.”
