Abel Shongwe says Kaizer Chiefs have the capacity to bounce back from their 3-0 MTN8 semi-final first leg defeat to Orlando Pirates this weekend.
Amakhosi struggled to get going against a motivated Buccaneers at the Orlando Stadium after seeing off Chippa United in a hard-fought DStv Premiership clash on Tuesday.
They have an intriguing tie with newly formed TS Galaxy on Wednesday before the return leg of their MTN8 tie at the FNB Stadium.
Shongwe, who played for Chiefs from 1986–1988, told KickOff: "Whatever Pirates did at Orlando Stadium, Chiefs can do it at FNB Stadium, this is football.
"I believe the guys were not ready for the game on Saturday. There were a lot of errors at the back. Let the coach rectify it and I believe Chiefs will come back a different team on Sunday.
"The 3-0 is not a bad scoreline. We have seen big teams bouncing back from that scoreline. It all depends on the players' mindset if it's okay and they believe they can do it."
