KAIZER Chiefs midfielder Willard Katsande has urged the Amakhosi fans to keep faith in a side he admits are still a work in progress.
The Zimbabwean international adds that they were aided by the international break as it afforded them the opportunity to work on some of their shortcomings.
Katsande feels this will stand Chiefs in good stead when they square off with the Absa Premiership and African champs Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday in Pretoria.
“I would say the break has been good for us to recharge our batteries,” Katsande tells KickOff.com. “We needed to regroup after a disappointing run. There were a few things we worked on that we were not happy with.
“That said, the vibes and the spirit in the team is still very high. We want to please our fans as we owe it to them. But like I said we’re a work in progress.”
The former Ajax Cape Town player has stressed that they will have to be at their best to beat the Brazilians on their home patch.
“We are definitely going to give them the respect they deserve,” Katsande further explains. “After all they are the defending PSL and African champs. The also would want to climb the ladder to make up for lost time and games played.
“It’s going to be a good battle and we as Chiefs players are looking forward to making our fans happy.”
