Chiefs headed to PE



Kaizer Chiefs will head to Port Elizabeth for 10 days on Friday as they continue their build-up to the new Premier Soccer League season.

The AmaKhosi have already had a lengthy camp in Nelspruit but are seemingly eager to get out of Gauteng as they head to the Windy City from July 11-21.

Coach Stuart Baxter says he is pleased with the progress the team has been making in pre-season so far and says the players will be ready for the new campaign.

“We’re sharpening now, with a few more practice matches we should be ready,” he told his club’s website. “At the moment we are mainly focusing on collecting information about the players, their physical readiness, performance and attitude. The real test will begin when the league resumes in August.”

Chiefs have made just two signings so far for the new season, left-back Levy Mokgothu from Moroka Swallows and striker Siphelele Mthembu from Platinum Stars.

Baxter has urged the club’s notoriously fickle support to give the new players time to adjust to the demands at Naturena.

“Levy (Mokgothu) and Siphelele (Mthembu) look lively in training but will also need 5 to 6 games to get into the rhythm,” Baxter said.
