We need to set the tone – Benni
“The win (against Baroka) was a morale booster because when the schedule came out, we had Cape Town City, Sundowns, Swallows, SuperSport United, Golden Arrows, Baroka and now Chiefs. It’s like they wanted to send us to our death very soon,” AmaZulu head coach Benni McCarthy said ahead today’s fixture against Kaizer Chiefs.
“We are finding our groove now, but we know we are up against a fearsome team with incredibly good players. On their day they can punish and hurt any team. You might capitalize when you get them when they are not at their best, like some other teams did.
“But Chiefs will always bounce back because they have players with big match temperament. We are preparing for a clash of the titans. Kaizer Chiefs, in the history of SA, is a big one.
“But I think we prepare the way we do for every game, trying to focus on ourselves more. We fix what we need to fix and how we need to get back to our best – where we are in control most of the time and not play into their hands and their strength.
“It’s our home game and we need to set the tone and control the pace of the game against Kaizer Chiefs, that’s why we focus on ourselves quite a lot. I am not disrespecting any opposition, but when it comes to us we do what we have to do.”
