Premier Soccer League, Ajax Cape Town striker Eleazar Rodgers has warned Kaizer Chiefs that they will be made to sweat for the Absa Premiership title.
Competitive football is set to resume in the country after the government gave the Premier Soccer League the go-ahead to resume the suspended season.
The campaign was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic last March with Kaizer Chiefs placed at the top of the league standings.
However, Kaizer Chiefs are four points behind second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns, who have a game in hand.
“I feel like nobody has proved that they can win the league. It has been very competitive thus far,” Eleazar Rodgers told SuperSport.com.
“Even though Kaizer Chefs are on top of the log, they still have their work cut out for them.”
SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates are placed third, and fourth respectively on the league standings – eight points behind Chiefs.
However, Eleazar Rodgers, who helped Bidvest Wits clinch the 2016/17 Absa Premiership title, is not ruling SuperSport and Pirates out from the title race.
“With Sundowns, SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates behind them, it won’t be an easy run until the end. The race is still on,” he said.
“Any of the top five if not six still stand a chance of winning the league depending on [how they perform in] their first three matches.”
“That will decide who will be able to catch Kaizer Chiefs. May the best team win the league,” he added.
“As things stand now I can’t say which team will win the league. [The gap] It is still too close to say at the moment.”
Rodgers also helped Wits clinch the MTN8 and Telkom Knockout Cup, before moving to Free State Stars and he joined Ajax in July 2019.
