EC Bees coach Chippa Njedu says tonight’s Nedbank Cup match against Mamelodi Sundowns is about marketing the club and for his players to attract interest from big clubs.

Njedu insists that the game is important to boost the club’s profile and for the players careers.

“It is an important game to us, we are not going into this match looking for a win, but it if comes then will take it. It is a game that will help market the team, it is also an opportunity for players to market themselves. We would like to see one of our players playing for a big side,” Njedu told Phakaaathi.

“It is not about winning but it is about the players to market themselves. I want them to play their normal game and enjoy their game. We prepared the same way we normally prepare for each game we have played in our league. I don’t want to put pressure on the players just because we are playing against Sundowns, they need to enjoy the game and do their best.”

The ABC Motsepe league side gave Kaizer Chiefs a scare last season when they scored two goals in the match, however, Amakhosi managed to win 3-2. In a game that saw Rhulani Sidumo made an impression on Baroka FC and eventually joined them.
