Katsande: I’m not afraid to take responsibility at Chiefs


Kaizer Chiefs’ defensive midfielder, Willard Katsande, says that he enjoys taking responsibility at the club.

He revealed that he put his hand up to take a penalty in the Telkom Knockout semi-finals against rivals Orlando Pirates because he could not sit back and leave his fate in the hands of others.

"I am not afraid of responsibility. I love to be in charge and that's why I took one of the penalties when we beat Pirates. It feels good to see that you have been able to help your team,’’ Katsande told Goal.

"It was important that I take the responsibility in the game against Pirates and make sure we qualify for the finals of the Telkom Knockout.

Katsande also revealed that he followed the coach’s instruction to be very defensively aware on the day. He said that doing so helped prevent the in-form strike force of Thamsanqa Gabuza and Kermit Erasmus from getting any joy.

“I think I did my job as the coach instructed me. I played just in front of the defenders which made it very hard for their strikers to penetrate. That was taking responsibility and the job for the team was done," ‘Salt and Vinegar’ concluded.

Unlike a number of his club mates, Katsande will not be participating in the preliminary rounds of 2018 Fifa World Cup Qualifiers that start this weekend. This is because the Zimbabwe Football Association was expelled from the qualifiers in March this year by Fifa after they failed to pay their debts to former coach José Claudinei Georgini.
