Reasons Why Chiefs' New Signings Are Being Pushed Aside

This has been a hot topic of discussion amongst many Kaizer Chiefs fans this season, the mystery of newly signed players not being given the chance to play and prove their worth...

Naturally, with a lot at stake, a club like Kaizer Chiefs will always think signings through, as there are reasons for every purchase made in the transfer window.

Yes, the bulk of the club's new signings have been missing from the starting line-up for most of the season but there are reasons to their exclusions, and here are a few possible reasons.

As the case with every new player at a club, they need time to settle in. This may take a whole season for those players who sit on the fringes of the first team, and it could even take two seasons.

Yes, there are the select few who hit the ground running at new clubs, but at a club like Chiefs, it’s a whole new level of competition for places as every player is expected to shine... This comes whether or not you are a first or second choice in your position.

The current group of players who are at Naturena, are those who have been at the club for many, many years. One could say the core of the team comprises of Siphiwe Tshabalala, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Siboniso Gaxa and Itumeleng Khune and breaking their mould won't be easy. 

The new signings may also not get any game time because they may not be up to the Amakhosi standard as yet, and it all comes down to the point of adjusting to new surroundings, new philosophies and new ambition... 

Having said that, do you feel that it is only a matter of time before we see the new singings make the grade at Naturena?
