They are a big team – Pitso Mosimane

“What do I fear most about Kaizer Chiefs? It’s not about the fear; it is about the reality, and it is about respect for the opponents,” Pitso Mosimane said during a virtual press conference ahead of the CAF Champions League final.

“The reality is they play very good football in terms of their own way of playing, and you have to respect their own way of playing.

“Their own way of playing has made Kaizer Chiefs go through Wydad, and Wydad is not a small team. And their own way has helped them go through Simba, and Simba is not a small team.

“And how would you come to the final if your way of playing is not effective? They are a good team, they are a big team, and we have to respect them because if you want to win, you have to respect our opponents.”
