Kaizer Chiefs: Khune, Frosler, Dove, Kwinika, Hlanti, Zwane, Maart, Ngcobo, Dolly, Mahlatsi, Bimenyimana
Subs: Bvuma, Ngezana, Du Preez, Matlou, Sekgota, Solomons, Radebe, Duba, Shabalala
Zwane is wary of the effects buying the wrong player will have on his group.
He believes that numerous factors must be considered before a transfer is made.
KAIZER CHIEFS WILL NOT CARELESSLY SPEND MONEY
Zwane asserts that Kaizer Chiefs will not make any panic purchases.
He believes that any new player must be able to strengthen the team.
After Blom’s departure, Zwane acknowledges that Chiefs are expected to jump into the market.
Instead, Zwane voiced confidence in the academy’s graduates’ ability to contribute.
The Chiefs’ coach stated, “I hear a lot of people saying we need to beef up, but we won’t just add players for the sake of beefing up.”
“If Samkelo settles, and we also played ‘Mapholoba’ [Ngcobo’s clan name] in that position to see if he can cope and how he can settle in terms of the structure, we’ll see if he can cope and how he can settle. He’s [Ngcobo] got the quality and ability, there’s no mistake about that.
“Therefore, we will not make hasty signings. We will focus on the areas where we are deficient, where we say, “we’re weak here and there.”
“We are realistically seeking a striker. But a striker who can offer value and assist players like [Wandile] Duba develop.
“If we don’t get the quality we’re looking for, we’d rather play Duba; he will improve and start scoring goals just like he did in the DDC league”
Now that the transfer window is open, Kaizer Chiefs can once again sign and register players, but they have yet to do so.
