Kaizer Chiefs prominent supporter Saddam Maake has outlined how the ‘Soweto giants’ are going to break many people’s hearts by clinching the Absa Premiership title with three matches to go.
A 2-1 loss to Maritzburg United on Saturday left most of the club’s supporters devastated as rivals Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates closed the gap to six and seven points respectively.
But Maake says his fellow Amakhosi fans shouldn’t lose hope as they are still in control of their own destiny.
“Losing against Maritzburg does not mean the League is over, we will fight until the dices roll, “said Maake.
“Liverpool are leading by 24 points and now people in England are no longer going to the Stadiums, the supporters are saying no the League is over.
“Us Kaizer Chiefs are we wrong if we wait for our colleagues? I’m waiting for my fellow brothers. If they are saying they will win all their remaining games, who says we will lose all our games? Asked Maake.
“They are saying the gap is only six points, but that six points is something that we have, while they are still going to play for that six.
“It’s AmaZulu on the 7th, it’s three points. Then we will beat [Bidvest] Wits, after that it’s Polokwane City, they owe us, just like Maritzburg they rise against us so it’s a draw. Then it’s [Bloemfontein] Celtic and I’m going to beat them.
“I will be on 11 points already. Stellenbosch I will beat also to make it 14 points. I will then go to Sundowns and get a draw, that’s 15 points. There are still 9 points that are on standby, they are from Wits the returning match, Chippa United and Baroka, “said a confident Maake.
“If Chiefs fail to win the league then it means it will be won by Baroka, because the Absa Premiership trophy will be in Peter Mokaba on 9 May, “concluded Maake.
