“We have to win it for Kaizer Motaung,” says Chiefs’ Nurkovic
Samir Nurkovic, Kaizer Chiefs striker said he would be so full of joy if he is able to win the Absa Premiership title in his first season with the Soweto giants and in bid to honour the club’s 50th anniversary
Amakhosi are in likely position to win their first trophy in five years as they top the Absa Premiership table with 56 points and leading Mamelodi Sundowns (who are also on the same point) with goal difference.
“I wasn’t here in the last five seasons, but the only thing I heard when I arrived at this big club is that it’s not acceptable to not win a title… Everything in the club is at the highest level,” said the Serbian striker nicknamed “Kokota Piano” after a popular local party song.
“We deserve to be on the first place. Winning the title will mean so much to the chariman as we celebrate our 50th anniversary. I will be happy to win the title in my first season,” he added.
Nurkovic has 13 goals in his pocket already this season and just two behind the joint top scorers – Gabadinho Mhango of Orlando Pirates and Peter Shalulile of Highlands Park.
He said he would be joyous if he wins the golden boot as the highest scorer but would be more meaningful if his team carry the Absa Premiership trophy.
Chiefs will face Baroka FC on Saturday which will serve as their last game of the season and Nurkovic said it is a must for them to win the match.
“It’s a really important game for us and everybody knows that we’ve had a good season and we’ve been at the top since the beginning. We will definitely fight and give our best until the last minute to try and secure a win and get this title. The team deserves it because we have been fighting for it for over a year and we have to go into it with a clean mindset and secure the win,” he said
