Kaizer Chiefs defender Ramahlwe Mphahlele has defended against pessimism over the club’s chances of ending their four-year trophy drought.
Chiefs are two matches away from ending their dry run since lifting the Absa Premiership title in May 2015, under then coach Stuart Baxter.
The club have since endured an unprecedented drought, with the likes of Steve Komphela and Giovanni Solinas having both failed to do something to stop this.
However, Ernst Middendorp looks set to help Amakhosi overcome their unwanted record as they soon face Chippa United in the Nedbank Cup semi-final, with a win taking them to a first cup final since the 2015 Telkom Knockout.
Though doubts remain over whether they do have the capability of going all the way in the competition, Mphahlele is adamant they have the necessary skillset to do so.
“I know success takes time and it doesn’t come easy – that’s one thing for sure, and I’m patient with that because I know it’s a work in progress,” said ‘Rama’.
“I know it’s going to happen, so I still maintain that we will win [a trophy]. It’s not, like, a myth. We will win.
“So, I still maintain and strongly believe the team is good enough to win trophies and that’s what we’re going to do.”
