SAFA Confirm Talks On Behalf Of Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates

SAFA has confirmed the association is in talks with Angola over interclub matches involving Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

The two Soweto giants are both scheduled to play CAF return leg fixtures next week – Amakhosi having to travel to Primeiro de Agosto for their Champions League group stage play-off clash, while the Buccaneers are hosting Sagrada Esperanca on January 6.

But with Angola limiting international travel because of the new Covid-19 strain, there have been some doubts over whether these matches will go ahead.

“We are talking to Angola about those interclub fixtures and the football authorities have to consult with the government and get back to us,” Tebogo Motlanthe, the SAFA acting CEO, told the Siya crew on Tuesday.

“There may very well be exceptions because of the interclub competitions and we don’t expect there to be an issue for the Chiefs and Pirates games to go ahead.”

Pirates, who beat Sagrada away, return to action in the new year this weekend when they face DStv Premiership log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday.

Chiefs were held to a goalless draw by Primeiro, but they don’t play a domestic game until January 9 and this allows them ample time to get their travelling logistics in the order given the Covid-19 requirements of late.
