- Bafana Bafana icon, Lucas Radebe, is fearing the worst for Kaizer Chiefs in Saturday’s Nedbank Cup final
- Radebe, who represented Chiefs as a player, doubts the Amakhosi’s ability to beat First Division side, TS Galaxy
- Chiefs are in the midst of a terrible form slump after they’ve only won 1 of their last 7 matches
South African soccer supporters are waiting in anticipation of Saturday’s Nedbank Cup final between Kaizer Chiefs and TS Galaxy.
The Glamour Boys would normally be considered heavy favourites in the David versus Goliath battle, but Lucas Radebe isn’t so sure.
The former Bafana Bafana and Chiefs legend said he remains optimistic, but admitted to doubting Chiefs’ prospects.
The First Division side go into the contest as heavy underdogs, but Radebe cites Chiefs’ form as cause for concern.
Briefly.co.za noted that the Amakhosi have only won one of their last seven matches, which included three losses.
TimesLIVE reported that Radebe urged the club to do some serious soul-searching at the end of the season.
Radebe said, “Based on their performance‚ it’s even doubtful‚ because to be honest they haven’t really performed convincingly throughout the season and that’s why they finished outside the top eight.”
The former Leeds United star feels that the cup final could be the club’s saving grace and this could motivate the players.
Based on Radebe’s sentiments, the contest could go down to the wire.
The match kicks off at 7pm at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
