After a dismal start to the 2007-08 Absa Premiership season, Kaizer Chiefs are glad to finally see some light at the end of the tunnel for the once all-conquering club.
In fact, chairman Kaizer Motaung is pleased with the sudden turn of events and believes their bouncing back is a great foundation to challenge for silverware next season.
Motaung was speaking after Amakhosi beat Orlando Pirates 1-0 in their second round match at Mmabatho Stadium on Saturday.
"We really needed to win to finish the season well inside the top eight bracket," said Motaung when asked how he felt about his club winning the popular Soweto derby.
Motaung said he was not happy with the performance of the club this season as they did not win a single trophy.
"We are not happy at all, we did not start the season well. The problem is that we got too many draws, but one is happy that the team is beginning to gel."
Motaung also assured their supporters that their head coach, Muhsin Ertugral will still be with the club in the new season.
"When we started with him (Muhsin) at the beginning of the season, we signed a two-year contract. He will still be with us."
Chiefs are left with two away games in the season, against Bloemfontein Celtic in Mangaung on Wednesday and Black Leopards in Thohoyandou on Sunday.
Like all the other clubs, Chiefs will decide on the new recruits and players to be off-loaded after their last game of the season.
