One Player Left Out Of Chiefs’ Travelling Squad, Solinas Gives Update

Kaizer Chiefs will face Zimamoto away in Zanzibar this week, with Head Coach Giovanni Solinas giving an update on the conditions.

The Soweto giants secured a 4-0 home win over Zimamoto in the first round of the CAF Confederations Cup, with Amakhosi now set to face their African rivals on their home turf.

Speaking to Chiefs official website, Head Coach Solinas is aware that the return leg will be no walk in the park for Amakhosi, with the Glamour Boys also coming off the back of a defeat in the Absa Premiership this past weekend.

“We landed safely. We are looking forward to a good encounter, Zimamoto won’t allow us a walk in the park in their own backyard,” Solinas said on Chiefs official website. 

“The pitch is an artificial turf which is different from what we are used to. But it does allow the play to flow. 

“Also, it’s very humid, which will bring another element into play. We will once again manage the squad, considering the number of back-to-back matches we are playing and the travelling,” the coach added. 

Solinas also went on to confirm that Ramahlwe Mphahlele has not travelled with the squad due to injury.

“Rama didn’t join. We just hope that his injury is not severe,” he said.
