Kaizer Chiefs are flying in the Absa Premiership and hold a six-point advantage heading into this weekend.
It's been a stunning turnaround since last season, but not everyone is happy with the current state of affairs.
According to Chiefs midfielder George Maluleka, there are many who would love to see the Amakhosi fail.
TimesLIVE reported on some of the pressures the Chiefs players face in light of their dormant silverware run of four seasons.
The cherry-on-top is that the Glamour Boys are celebrating their 50th birthday this campaign.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the players are taking it all in their stride, as confirmed by Maluleka.
The midfielder said, “For us‚ it’s very good. A lot of people try to put us under a lot of pressure."
Maluleka added, "We always say it’s Kaizer Chiefs versus the whole PSL with every game we play."
Although it sounds cliched, Maluleka explained that the team is only focusing on the next game, one at a time.
This would mean that all their energy will be focused for the clash against Cape Town City on Sunday.
The Chiefs players should be optimistic of a positive result, considering that they've only lost once in their last seven matches against City.
