Lucas Radebe has backed former club Kaizer Chiefs to lift the 2019/20 Absa Premiership title.
Radebe played over 100 times for Amakhosi before earning a move to the English Premiership and Leeds United.
And speaking shortly after seeing the Whites promoted to the English top-flight for the first time in 16 years, Radebe says he wants Chiefs to emulate their success – and that of recent Premier League Champions Liverpool.
Amakhosi entered the enforced break, as a result, of the coronavirus on top of the league standings, but just four points clear of Mamelodi Sundowns, having played a game more.
Radebe, who stared for Chiefs from 1989 to 1994 before a decade in England where he captain Leeds, told Goal: “I would like to see Chiefs lifting the PSL title.
“With this disruption of Covid-19, I think it gave them an opportunity to look back and regroup.
“You know, I believe they can finish this season on a high and I hope that when they resume the league again, they will finish in style. Liverpool have done it and Leeds have also done it.”
Radebe added: “So, we need the mighty Kaizer Chiefs to lift the title this season but it’s not going to be easy.”
