Kaizer Chiefs legend Lucas Radebe has backed his former team, Kaizer Chiefs to win the Absa Premiership title ahead of their 50th anniversary season.
Amakhosi will get another chance to further extend their league when they face Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala Stadium before going for the Christmas break a potential 10-point lead.
The former Bafana Bafana captain says that he strongly believes that coach Ernst Middendorp’s charges have what it takes to finish the deal.
“You are going to have to give them credit for how far they’ve come through the criticism of the last five years because it was unlike the Kaizer Chiefs we knew,” Radebe said.
“I mean, they’ve lost a lot of credibility with the fans in terms of the results in the field of play. But I think now you can see they are willing to bring the glory days back.
“I think this is one club capable of doing that with the structures they have. And surely this is the year. This is their opportunity.
“I mean, they are playing great, we’ve seen some great results. Surely, it’s possible, especially now, at this time of the year, when it is very crucial. There’s a break.
“Then you start again, where if you’ve been on top form you make sure that break doesn’t hamper you. I believe they’ve got enough in the bag to bag the league at the end of the season.”
