Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane believes that the season is far from over when it comes to the PSL title race.
Mamelodi Sundowns sport a big lead on the log table but the chasing pack still have hope.
Kaizer Chiefs coach says the race isn’t over
Sundowns coach Rhulani Mokwena has also insisted that the title cannot be won in January.
“There are still 16 games to play for, but I’ll concur with Mamelodi Sundowns’ coach Rhulani, who said the league has never been won in January,” Zwane said according to iDiski Times.
Chiefs are some way off the pace but Zwane says they are focused on rebuilding.

“When you are building a team, we’ve got a lot of youngsters, we’ve got a lot of new players to adapt, to adjust to the pressure as well,” Zwane added.
“With us, we have to grind the results as well as, at the same time, come up with a plan to build our identity.
“So far, so good. I’m pleased. To be quite honest, I’m pleased, the players have responded positively, even though it’s going to be a long journey.
“But at the end of the day, you can see, everyone is enjoying themselves, everyone feels part of the team and you can see the results though sometimes they are not coming or we’re blowing hot and cold.
“But I’m just glad that we’ve seen a lot of positives.”
Kaizer Chiefs have a hectic January schedule that includes massive matches that might go some way towards settling the title.
Zwane and company will take on Sundowns on 21 January but not before testing encounters with Sekhukhune United and Amazulu.
The month is rounded out with a meeting with bogey team Royal AM.
