Following their 4-0 win over Stellenbosch FC on Wednesday night, Amakhosi have now won 10, drawn one and lost one of 12 league matches in the 2019/20 season.

Nurkovic scored the first and third goals for Chiefs, who regained their 10 points lead at the top of the log standings after last night’s win over Stellies at Cape Town Stadium.

“Once again I’m very happy to have scored these two goals, to contribute to the victory. I also want to congratulate my teammates for a very good effort and teamwork. Once again we have shown our character, our fighting spirit, we’re happy,” Nurkovic told SuperSport TV after the match.

“I think teamwork and the support for each other. We’re one big family and this is very important for every team. When you feel at home, whether you’re off the pitch or on the pitch, for me personally, I feel very good at Kaizer Chiefs.

“Also to mention we have the best fans in the world, whether we’re playing at home or away we feel like we’re playing at home. So, I want to thank them for the support. I appreciate the love and their support,” added the Serb.

Nurkovic conceded that it was still too early to regard Chiefs as title favourites, saying there are still a lot of games to be played before the season ends.

“There’s no title that any team has won in November. There’s still a lot of games to play. We just need to continue with the same spirit, and in the end, it will be okay for us I’m sure.”

Chiefs, who will not be in action this coming weekend, will resume their league campaign with a clash against Bloemfontein Celtic at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday, December 7.
