Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung appears not to be losing sleep over whether the team can hold on to its lead and win the League crown this season.
Football is set to resume next week after the forced break due to Covid-19 and the Phefeni Glamour Boys lead the way with 48 points from 22 outings.
Mamelodi Sundowns are breathing down their necks in second spot on 44 points from 21 matches. It’s all to play for and Motaung, speaking to FARPost on Saturday, insisted that Chiefs remain calm in the title race.
“It’s in God’s hands and if it’s destined to be, it’d be and if it’s not, football is about winning and losing. It’s a game,” stated Bobsteak at Gabalatsane village in Hebron, where he invited us for his 50th birthday celebration.
“But you fight for success. Life is the same – you fight for survival… It’s a milestone for Chiefs to reach 50 years and we’ve had our ups and downs,” Motaung continued.
“If it’s to be this year, it’s going to be,” he reiterated.
For now, Motaung is just delighted to see the club turn 50 and also, on a personal level, he’s now also 50.
The club was formed on 7 January 1970 and Bobsteak was born six months later. “To have Chiefs at 50 years old, it’s been a tough one,” he added.
Whether Chiefs can have their cake and eat it in their 50th anniversary by winning the League remains to be seen.
