Kaizer Chiefs Public Relations Officer Putco Mafani is oozing with confidence after Kaizer Chiefs were drawn to play Santos at the Athlone Stadium in this season's Coca Cola Cup.
When asked by SASoccer365 why he is so confident about this draw the outspoken Putco had the following to say:
"We've always started the Coke Cup away from home and you know we've been successful. We won the inaugural competition and were controversially beaten by Jomo Cosmos last year, but this year it operation Mayibuye e'Coke Cup for us."
The Phefeni Glamour boys have an excellent track record in this competition. Last year they beat Moroka Swallows, Golden Arrows and Ajax Cape Town all away from home.
"Our supporters in Cape Town will once again turn out in numbers and South Africans will see that not only are we the biggest club, we've got the best support in the country. And we owe our supporters in Cape Town, and what better way will there be but to beat Santos in their backyard. We will once again fill the Cape Town stadiums and show them (Santos) the flair that we have."
Santos is in second position on the Castle Premiership, behind the Amakhosi, who went top of the log on Sunday, and despite their good form Putco believes this will bring out even better performances from the Chiefs players.
"Yes they are a good team and have been playing well, which makes us rise to the occasion. It's good that we're playing a team that's on form, and what better way to prove we're on form by giving them a hiding.I can tell you Boebie Solomons and co will know about e'ya chesa when we leave their shores."
Chiefs thrashed Cosmos 5-0 in the first final of the Coke Cup, and last year Ezenkosi defeated them 1-0 in what was sweet revenge for Cosmos.
44 goals were scored in 15 Coca Cola Cup knockout games - compared to 33 goals in 13 games in the 2001 competition, and if this progression of goals is anything to go by then this year's cup should be a feast of flair.
