Kaizer Chiefs defender Daniel Cardoso is delighted to have penned a new deal with the club.
The 31-year-old has signed a 2-year deal with an option to extend for a further year.
“I’ve been here for the last 5 seasons and I’m happy here, and I’m glad that they have extended my stay you know. It just shows that they have faith in me and I wanna continue working hard, and bring trophies back to Naturena,” said the former Free State Stars man.
Meanwhile, the centre-back says the team is not overly concerned with the current situation in the Absa Premiership.
Chiefs are still top of the log with 45 points, but Mamelodi Sundowns have cut down their lead to just 4 points with 10 matches remaining.
“We’ve still got 10 games left in the League… but there’s no stress in camp or anything. It puts a bit of pressure on us, yes, but it’s a wake up call for us. We know what’s at stake and we want to obviously end our trophy drought,” added Cardoso.
Chiefs will in the meantime turn their focus to the Nedbank Cup, where they square off against Highlands Park in the last 16 at Makhulong Stadium on Saturday afternoon (15:00).
