Junior Khanye believes TS galaxy are a 'beautiful choir'

Former Kaizer Chiefs player Junior Khanye believes TS Galaxy could give Amakhosi a variety of problems ahead of Saturday's Nedbank Cup final clash at Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Khanye takes the view that coach Dan Malesela's side play a superb brand of possession football and it could force the likes of Willard Katsande to break up play with fouls and rough-house tactics.

In addition, the former Glamour Boys star backed on-loan Orlando Pirates up-and-comer Zakhele Lepasa to have an influential game for Galaxy.

Speaking to Soccer Laduma, he said: "There's that boy who scored two goals in the semi-final against Golden Arrows...he is very good. He is the kind of a player that Chiefs should look to sign.

"He is good with the ball at his feet and is also equally good with his running off the ball. His first touch is brilliant. He is a South African diamond. I see him scoring and we can talk about it after the game. Chiefs aren't solid at the back and those boys from TS Galaxy are skilful and quick.

"I see a lot of fouls flying through because of the pace of the game that I am anticipating. (Willard) Katsande will have to be careful of not getting a red card. Those boys from TS Galaxy are like a choir, where everyone is on the same page from tenor, soprano, and alto and so on. Watching them play is like listening to a choir signing with a conductor in front of them."

He concluded about coach Ernst Middendorp's outfit: "I love the team so much and for me the club is like home and that's why I am critical of their performances, because I want to see them improving."

Kickoff is in Durban at 19:00.
