With this season’s PSL showing early signs of thick action, Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas believes that there are no favourites to lift the coveted trophy.

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane last week said he did not expect any side to dominate again this season.

However, Solinas agreed but insisted that his Chiefs team would be up there with the contenders come the end of the campaign‚ even after managing just 14 points from their opening 10 games  effectively therefore dropping 16 points.

Chiefs lost on Saturday to Polokwane City in an unexpected setback after their unbeaten run.

“This season is like last season with the PSL very balanced‚” the Italian-born coach.

“We need to fight all the way but the league won’t be settled before May.

“There will be a lot of fighting for the title and lots of fighting to avoid relegation.

“The PSL’s level has improved a lot and also the gap between the big and the small clubs has reduced.

“The league was very short last season and‚ in my opinion‚ will be the same again.

“Every club is capable of competing.

“Of course‚ this includes Kaizer Chiefs to win the league.

“It doesn’t matter that we lost to Polokwane City  it’s a pity and we are disappointed  but for the title Chiefs will be competing‚” Solinas insisted.
