Midfield domination, according to Kaizer Chiefs legend Johannes ‘Fetsi’ Molatedi, is the key to the Glamour Boys defeating Sundowns.
Molatedi, a former member of the legendary Amakhosi sides of the past, believes that controlling the center of the field will give Chiefs a chance to win.
Should the Kaizer Chiefs dismiss Arthur Zwane?
According to him, Sundowns must be deprived of possession in order to penetrate their defense.
“I am aware that the sid’s confidence is currently a little low. But now is the moment for them to work together and for each other. They must maintain possession of the ball in midfield; ball possession is crucial, and as the game develops, their confidence will rise,” Molatedi stated this week on www.kaizerchiefs.com.
“Our motivation has always been to be the best and dominate local football.” We were the best at the time and had the desire to accomplish this. I felt a little ‘arrogance,’ which is sometimes required on the field to put the ball in the back of the opponent’s net, adds Molatedi.Molatedi believes that someone in the Kaizer Chiefs midfield will have to step up in order to defeat Sundowns.
“It need someone to assume responsibility, particularly in midfield. “They are the team’s engine, the link between defense and offense,” adds Molatedi.
Even during our time, Sundowns was one of the top teams in South African football, with a number of talented players. They were comprised of the best South African players, yet Kaizer Chiefs remained Kaizer Chiefs. Once you put on a Kansas City Chiefs shirt, you must be dedicated, focused, and have clear goals. We intended to make the Kaizer Chiefs the best team in the country, and no other team stood in our way,” adds Molatedi.
