Kaizer Chiefs Sporting Director Kaizer Motaung Jnr has provided insight into the club’s tactics when transfer windows open.
Despite being one of the country’s biggest teams, the Chiefs have been criticized for years of being unwilling to spend money and recruit quality players.
In an interview with Gagasi FM, Motaung Jnr rejected that the Chiefs are unwilling to compete in the transfer market, noting that investing money must be accompanied by a return on investment.
Motaung Jnr said the notion that Chiefs don’t want to spend money on new players is a complete misconception because the club is also spending huge money on salaries.
WHAT KAIZER CHIEFS LOOK AT WHEN BUYING NEW PLAYERS
“You have to assess it based on the situation. I don’t think there’s clubs that just pay and sign without looking at the return on investment,” said Motaung Jnr.
“We’ve got to put money and say, ‘listen, this is what we are going to achieve from that’.
“So, I know transfer window is always bit of a trick one for people because they sometimes have the misconception that the team doesn’t want to spend money.”
“If you look at the amount of money that it spends, it is a lot of money, and salaries are factored into that. So, I take the point that we are always willing to be as competitive as we can in the transfer market,” added Motaung Jnr.
