Roger de Sa likens Kaizer Chiefs to Liverpool


A former Orlando Pirates coach has likened the gap Kaizer Chiefs have opened at the top of the table to that of Liverpool in the English Premier League.

On Sunday Liverpool stretched their lead at the top of the standings to nine points, while Amakhosi have opened a 10-point gap between them and second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns.

Roger De Sa, who coached Pirates from 2012 to 2013, believes the Absa Premiership title is now the Glamour Boys' to lose.

"Eh! Chiefs are looking good hey, shoo!" De Sa tells

"Chiefs are looking very good, I must say. They can maintain it because nobody seems to keep pace hey. They look like Liverpool in England. It looks like they are starting to run away with it."

De Sa, who is a part-owner of Cape Umoya United, says he will always be available to coach again if any team approaches him.

"Ja I probably will, but I don't know when. It could be a national team, it could be a team outside of the country, it could be a Sunday league team, I don't know, we'll see," he adds.

"I'm available today, tomorrow [laughs]. I can do what I want at the moment. It depends what happens, it depends who calls and for what reason and for anything else I'm not desperate, you know what I mean?

"I'm not jobless, I'm not on the unemployment list you know. I'm okay [laughs]. But ja if a nice project came up you know obviously I would consider it. My football job is not done so I can do whatever needs to be done.

"Where I am [Cape Umoya] it's more of administrative, organising... so that's what I'm doing you know. But ja who knows? Who knows what I'll be doing next year, I don't know. It's football you know, it can change."
