Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas is already looking ahead to the Soweto derby clash with Orlando Pirates on 27 October 2018, saying it’s a special one.
Speaking after the shock 1-0 loss to Polokwane City at the weekend, Solinas shifted his focus to the next Absa Premiership match against none other than arch-rivals Pirates.
“The next game is important because it is a derby. It is a special game.”
“It is very important for the supporters and the club. We need to improve our performances. We need to be more consistent,” Solinas said.
Amakhosi will go toe-to-toe with its traditional rivals at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, 27 October 2018.
Solinas is looking for his first win over the bigger opponents in his tenure with Amakhosi. He succumbed to defeats against Bidvest Wits and SuperSport while sharing the spoils with Mamelodi Sundowns.
“Every three points is important. Three points is three points it doesn’t matter whether you got it against Sundowns or against AmaZulu. Three points is three points. The most important part is consistency,” Solinas said.
“This season is like last season. The PSL is balanced. We will fight for the title until May when the league is finished. The level of PSL has improved. The gap between the small clubs and the bigger teams has been reduced. Everyone is fighting and everyone can compete. Kaizer Chiefs is also competing to win the league. Despite the fact that we lost today [Saturday, 6 October 2018], we are still competing for the league,” he concluded.
