Kaizer Chiefs will play Swallows at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Monday afternoon in DStv Premiership action.
The Glamour Boys are striving for a position in Africa, but they will realize that defeating the Dube birds is a requirement.
Despite a critical league encounter looming, the Glamour Boys will naturally have their sights set on next weekend’s Nedbank Cup semi-final clash against Orlando Pirates.
Arthur Zwane has spoken up about the difficulty of keeping his players focused on Swallows.
Swallows must be prioritized, according to Kaizer Chiefs coach.
“People are already picturing pirates rather than swallows.” It gets into our players’ ears, and they start thinking about the derby,”
Kaizer Chiefs coach SowetanLive reported.
We must manage it, and we have been in that scenario while still players. I believe we have the advantage of assisting these players in managing themselves and the entire group.
“Sometimes the derby can make you forget about what is important.” What is critical for us is to focus on one game at a time.
“As soon as we finish playing the game on Monday, we will focus on the Pirates game, though it will be difficult because everyone is talking about the derby, especially after a great performance like this (against Chippa United).”
The match between Kaizer Chiefs and Swallows FC starts at 15:00 on Monday. SuperSport PSL will broadcast the match live.
