- Kaizer Chiefs opened up a commanding 10-point lead in the Absa Premiership
- This followed their eight-goal thriller against Bloemfontein Celtic over the weekend
- Chiefs have now racked up twice as many points as fierce rivals Orlando Pirates
What a difference a season can make for a football team.
Last season, Kaizer Chiefs looked down and out as they plummeted outside of the top eight and endured a campaign without silverware.
Following some smart recruitment, the Glamour Boys have romped to the top of the Absa Premiership in fine style.
As reported by Briefly.co.za, Chiefs have once again secured an impressive 10-point lead on the log following their victory against Bloemfontein Celtic.
Chiefs ended victorious by five goals to three, with Samir Nurkovic scoring a hat trick.
Incredibly, the Amakhosi now boast double the number of points compared to Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates.
While Chiefs have amassed 34 points, the Buccaneers have only been able to muster 17 points this far.
Briefly.co.za gauged the social media reaction following the tweet shared by SuperSport TV and Chiefs fans are loving their log position, as well as the bragging rights over Pirates.
Khwezi (@Khwezi99004994) touched on Pitso Mosimane's earlier sentiments:
"Guys, chiefs didn't get all those points all on their own. They had a bit of help from the ref."
Nonos Mahlangu (@Nonos) is loving life at the moment:
"#Amakhosi4Life are reclaiming the glory. This season started on a good note for Kaizer Chiefs."
Julian Casavan Miggels (@jcoffcourse) identified some cause for concern:
"Glad for Chiefs, sad for SA soccer. The number of teams with negative GD. Wow."
