We will play our football – Solinas
“We did our regeneration session on Sunday,” remarked coach Giovanni Solinas, while taking his charges through pre-match training on Monday afternoon, before adding, “This one is a light training session to focus on the game plan.”
The Kaizer Chiefs coach feels confident ahead of the much anticipated visit of Bidvest Wits at FNB Stadium on Tuesday night. Kick-off is at 19:30.
“Wits have a competitive side with a fighting spirit,” commented Solinas. “They are a typical Gavin Hunt coached team, having some good players who play with determination.”
The coach took notice of Wits’ 3-0 thumping of Free State Stars in their opening fixture.
Chiefs played to a draw in an epic battle away against Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday. “We come from a tough match,” continued Solinas. “And the match against Wits will be no different. It’s going to be a tough one for both sides. We won’t change much, as we always play our football and keep to our philosophy.”
The Italian reported no injury worries from the Sundowns trip, “We will exploit their weaknesses. I am extremely happy to see my players putting so much effort in training.”
It will be the first home match for Solinas and new signing Khama Billiat, who won Man of the Match award for his excellent performance against the Brazilians.
The coach didn’t give away much in terms of maintaining the same line-up as compared to the Sundown match. “We will field the best team to play on the day,” he concluded.
Tickets are sold at Computicket and Shoprite/Checkers outlets nationwide at R40. Parking will be for free.
No tickets will be sold at the stadium.
