Former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper and coach, Banks Setlhodi, has said that signing a young player will not help his former team return to their best.
After Chiefs lost their first two competitive games of the season, Setlhodi has said that Chiefs need a player with lots of league experience.
“Look, whoever comes to Chiefs now needs to have played in the league for at least two or three seasons, and tasted victory,” he told Soccer Laduma.
The 69-year-old went on to say that it would be unwise to rely on a younger player to assume any role within Steve Komphela’s setup, because it would be difficult for an inexperienced player to grow without mentors in place to show them the ropes.
“You can’t really bring in a youngster to uplift Chiefs, because youngsters need somebody to build them up, but where can you get somebody that’s the finished product? Chiefs need someone more mature. They can’t really bring in someone that can be groomed to do that job,” he concluded.
