The Cape side’s newly appointed coach Dylan Deane says playing against Chiefs would be a great experience for some of his players.
“I think for me, I want Kaizer Chiefs, to be honest with you. I think also being a student of this game, I started watching football at a very young age, being a Kaizer Chiefs supporter myself all these times,” said Deane.

“I looked up to all those players and the coaches they had. Shane McGregor, Rudolf Seale, Ntsie Maphike, Samora Khulu, Teenage Dladla… and those players, (are the reason for the way) I look at football and the passion it brings to me and to my players. It creates a good feel in and around our club when I talk to them about the past and how we could play football and how football should be played, in my idea. So, yeah, I’d actually love to get Kaizer Chiefs to be honest with you,” the coach said.
