There seems to be a different feel and togetherness at Kaizer Chiefs now that Amakhosi are flexing their muscles in the transfer window. Recent seasons have seen the Glamour boys target free agents with players coming in and out of the doors at the club.
This brought no stability and identity to the sustainable progression of the club as a whole and as a brand as well.
Yes, they have always been known to be a big club with a huge following but this season appears to be is do or die campaign. The Chiefs faithful will be watchful of all that and will be expecting results imminently.
If the new recruits don't hit the ground running, then the lack of trust in local talent will come into question. The investment into Arthur Zwane is a sign of belief in local coaches that will reap benefits in years to come.
As this will improve the quality of player coming thru the academy. Making the transition even better to the first team. I love seeing this as it gives me hope as a coach myself. But it’s time for Chiefs to put their money where their mouth is.
