…By Judah Olanisebee for TDPel Media. Unveiling Kaizer Chiefs’ Potential XI and Tactical Shift Under Molefi Ntseki


With Molefi Ntseki favoring a 4-3-2-1 system, Kaizer Chiefs may see a change in their lineup, with players like Samkelo Zwane getting more starting opportunities.

Let’s explore the options available to Ntseki and the potential implications for the team.

Exploring the 4-3-2-1 System: Ntseki’s preferred tactical approach involves deploying three central midfielders, two attacking midfielders, and a lone striker.


This could mean adjustments for wide player Pule Mmodi, who is on the verge of joining from Golden Arrows.

On the other hand, it presents a chance for players like Keagan Dolly to thrive.

This system favors narrower creative players and relies on a single central striker, potentially Ranga Chivaviro, who is expected to join from Marumo Gallants.

Potential Starting XI: Based on the tactical shift, a potential starting lineup for Kaizer Chiefs under Ntseki could look like this: Petersen; Solomons, Msimango, Ditlhokwe, Dove; Maart, Zwane, Mdantsane; Dolly, Shabalala; Chivaviro.

Dolly’s Importance: Keagan Dolly’s experience and versatility in the attacking positions make him a crucial puzzle piece in Ntseki’s plans.


As a natural link between midfield and attack, Dolly’s presence will greatly benefit promising youngster Mduduzi Shabalala.

Additionally, Mduduzi Mdantsane’s technical ability and cultured left foot might see him deployed in a deeper midfield role, with Yusuf Maart and Samkelo Zwane operating behind him.

Youth Development: Looking towards the future, Ntseki will have the luxury of working with a new batch of talented young players.

One standout prospect is Mfundo Vilakazi, who is among the six players currently training with the first team.

It remains to be seen if he will make the senior squad in the upcoming season, showcasing the continued commitment to nurturing talent at Naturena.


Conclusion: With the potential tactical shift and the inclusion of promising young players, Kaizer Chiefs under Ntseki’s guidance are poised for an exciting period ahead.

The adaptability of players like Dolly and the emergence of new talents add depth and potential to the team’s success.

As fans eagerly await the new season, the direction of the team seems promising under Ntseki’s leadership.

The tactical adjustments and potential lineup discussed highlight Ntseki’s strategic thinking and his intention to reshape Kaizer Chiefs’ playing style.

The inclusion of youth players demonstrates the club’s dedication to nurturing talent and building for the future.


As the team prepares for the upcoming season, it will be interesting to see how these changes unfold and how the players adapt to the new system.

The excitement and anticipation among fans are palpable, as they eagerly await the start of a new era for Kaizer Chiefs.
