Celtic will try to break our momentum - Mathoho
Kaizer Chiefs defender, Eric Mathoho, believes that Bloemfontein Celtic will try to “halt” his team’s winning streak, when they meet at the Free State Stadium on Wednesday evening.
“It is always a big game travelling to Celtic,” Mathoho said.
The former Celtic defender has said that he had great times with the Siwelele boys.
“I had good moments at Celtic but now I am a Glamour Boy. Celtic is not a so-called small team. They have the backing of their passionate supporters.”
He added that he is ready for the Premier Soccer League (PSL) to start once again, saying that he has learnt a lot since returning from the 2015 African Cup of Nations (AFCON).
“I am fresh and looking forward to combine well with my teammates to continue where we left off before the break.
“We learned a lot of things at the AFCON.”
“Playing against overseas based and experienced players was an eye-opener, which will come handy in the domestic league and cup matches.
“It is still a long way to go to the last game. We take each game as it comes. Celtic will look at breaking our momentum, but they will find us ready to defend our pride and the badge.”
