We are going to war. These are the words uttered by SuperSport United speedster Thuso Phala after the team’s training session earlier today.

The 28 year-old is determined to get one over his former side Platinum Stars in the Telkom Knockout final at Orlando Stadium on Saturday afternoon (kick off 3pm).

“Look, I know their weaknesses, what they are good at and surely I will be prepared for the game,” said Phala ahead of the titanic clash.

“For me it is an opportunity to get one back from them, I mean after I left the team they won two cups.”

Phala is referring to the MTN8 and Telkom Knockout titles Dikwena won last season.

These achievements helped earn Stars coach Allan Freese a permanent deal with the club at the end of last year.

Stars have struggled in the league this season, however, and are currently 13th on the Absa Premiership log with 11 points from 10 games. They were also hammered 5-0 on aggregate by Kaizer Chiefs in the MTN8 seminfinals. There have been rumours that Freese could be on his way out at Stars, but he will surely silence all his critics if Dikwena can defend their TKO title.
