Nyandoro wants to play against Chiefs


Mamelodi Sundowns skipper Esrom Nyandoro has voiced his disappointment that their fixture against AmaZulu has been rescheduled to May 4.

The match was cancelled on Saturday because of heavy rain and Downs’ next match will be against Kaizer Chiefs on May 1 at Loftus Stadium.

Nyandoro is disappointed that he was due to miss the match against Usuthu and thereby serve his one match suspension. That meant he would be able to return for the Chiefs showdown.

Now the postponement of the Usuthu clash means the Zimbabwean international will have to sit out the Amakhosi fixture.

Speaking to KickOff.com, Nyandoro said the game should have been played before the one against Chiefs.

“This is unfair, it means that in more than 20 days we won’t play a competitive game,” he added.

“Now we will play three tough matches against Chiefs, AmaZulu and Maritzburg United in a space of a week. This is not good, the games we will be playing are very tough and they will be close to each other. I think we should have played Usuthu before our game against Chiefs,” he said.

Nyandoro believes that Sundowns will appeal the PSL decision on the match date and that he will be available for their game against Chiefs.

“Obviously, I would love to play against Chiefs. This is a game that every player loves to play and help their team win,” he concluded.
