Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Jimmy Joubert believes Amakhosi have been playing as a unit and is impressed by their performance in the Absa Premiership this season.
The Glamour Boys will resume their hunt for their first Absa Premiership title since the 2014-15 season when they face Bidvest Wits on 12 August, with kick-off set for 6pm.
Amakhosi currently sit at the summit of the league table with 48 points from 22 matches, with eight games remaining in the 2019-20 season.
However, Joubert is not worried about Amakhosi playing at the Orlando Stadium instead of the FNB Stadium as it was their home for many years and where they won their first-ever league title back in 1974.
‘This year we are really playing as a unit,’ Joubert told Chiefs’ official website. ‘The boys must just go out and enjoy the game.
‘If a team looks sloppy, even if it’s off the field, it often starts playing in a sloppy, undisciplined way. We, however, always looked neat and, to me, that has always been part of Chiefs’ success.
‘Orlando Stadium was always our home,’ explained Joubert. ‘Orlando has a rich history with Kaizer Chiefs … that sentiment, it’s a special stadium.
‘Of course, the players will miss the supporters, as they give the team that energy. It is how it is. They should also not worry about what the other teams are doing when it comes to results. They just need to get their mind in the right place and focus on themselves. If they continue playing as a unit, they will get the results.’
