Chiefs' Biggest Mistakes This Season

Kaizer Chiefs may have accumulated much of their points in the Absa Premiership in the first half the season, and one could say that it provided us some kind of leverage to drop points in the second half of the season.

We did, however, make a few errors going into the season and were guilty of making a few more as the season progressed. As a result, we face a sticky run-in period.

Here are three of the biggest mistakes we made this season...

Failing To Add Quality In Depth

Going into many domestic competitions, as well as the gruelling CAF Champions League, we did not do much in adding quality players to our deck of cards. This underlined the idea of not having much continental ambition, and we now find ourselves in a position where we are facing an exit in the preliminary rounds of the competition.

Delay In Contract Deals

This is something which does not go well with the supporters, as they yearn to know where their favourite players in the squad will land up at the end of the campaign. Some of our biggest players at the club are yet to sign fresh deals and could even leave if no agreements are reached.  With regards to unity, I believe it could have affected the squad in a negative way.

The Sale Of Kingston Nkhatha

We are struggling without Nkhatha as we have looked less threatening in attack since his departure. It was recently reported that coach Stuart Baxter is in search of a striker, and he even went as far as the United Kingdom by giving Englishman James Keene a trial at the club. I really do feel it was a case of breaking down an already open door, as the sale of Nkhatha was unnecessary.

Having said that, what other mistakes do you think we made this season?
