Chairman Tim Sukazi has revealed that he grew up supporting the side his club TS Galaxy will be facing in tonight’s Nedbank Cup final.
Sukazi grew up as a Kaizer Chiefs fan and Galaxy will lock horns with the Soweto giants at Mbombela Stadium. In its first season of existence, Galaxy has an opportunity to win a major trophy in South African football.
“No one has ever asked me that question before. When you grow up you know only two football clubs to be honest – Kaizer Chiefs or Orlando Pirates. So I picked up Kaizer Chiefs and I even had the opportunity to play for their reserve side under Ryder Mofokeng way back then,” Sukazi told South African soccer magazine, KickOff.com.
“That’s the club I grew up knowing. Marks Maponyane was a superstar back then. I really loved watching him, so yes that was my club.”
“It would be such a fulfillment and it would talk to the belief I always have that ‘nothing is impossible’. If you believe in it, you’ll earn it. I never imagined it, in my time growing up and supporting Chiefs and playing for the reserves, that I’d be here. Even on day one of starting TS Galaxy, I never thought that within 10 months of being in the professional ranks that we would play Kaizer Chiefs in a final of the national cup in the form of the Nedbank Cup. So all this happened because of faith, belief and hard work.”
