Tinkler On Who His Favourites Are For The Title

Eric Tinkler On Who His Favourites Are For The Title

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 20, 2017 10:59 AM

Cape Town City remain at the number one spot on the Absa Premiership league standings after last night’s encounter, but Head Coach, Eric Tinkler, still thinks his rivals are the favourites for the league title.

The Mother City-based club claimed a valuable point in an Absa Premiership encounter against their title rivals, Bidvest Wits at the Cape Town Stadium last night, April 19, which ensured that Head Coach Eric Tinkler’s side remained at the helm of the log.

Despite trailing one point behind City on 46-points, Wits still have two games in hand to be played in order to catch up with the Mother City-based club’s total of 24. 

Speaking after the match last night, Tinkler revealed that the Students are the favourites for the league title at this point, after exiting both the CAF competition and the Nedbank Cup campaign.

“Wits are out of CAF, they are out of the (Nedbank) cup, he (Gavin Hunt) has a good time now to recover this weekend I am sure he is going to give the guys two days off, which is something they wouldn’t have had, had they’ve been in the Cup. So, I think they (Wits) are definitely favourites. Sundowns are still involved in CAF and we know what those journeys are like,” Tinkler told the media.

Can we just celebrate the fact that the top four teams are managed by South Africans and two of those teams are infact SAs big teams and them doing so well under the management of a South African makes this even more impressive. Baxter has been in SA for a while so we can't say the local coaches have an advantage over him plus he had time to build SSU last season. Tinkler has been nothing but impressive with City. Amen

Despite travelling Tinkler, the theory you are using can haunt you. Never count Sundowns out of this race, we ve seen this movie before. Sundowns are still going to play Wits which can be the end of title hopes for Wits bcoz they are going to end their campaign of the league against Chiefs.
