Carling Black Label 2019

Chiefs’ Player Recruitment Criteria Outlined

With another squad overhaul expected at Kaizer Chiefs, assistant coach Shaun Bartlett has explained how the club plans to avoid repeating past mistakes.

There has been a high turnover of players at Naturena since May 2015, coincidentally the last time the Amakhosi won a trophy.

But the current technical team is determined to put a stop to it by improving the standard of players being signed by the club.  

“That is something that we have recognised – there needs to be a template for the type of player that we need at Chiefs,” Bartlett told the media at the launch of the Carling Black Label Cup this week.

“We have seen it over and over and not just players from other clubs to Chiefs, but at national level. When you don’t perform at a certain level you are not good enough. It’s a heavy badge to carry, coming to Chiefs. You can’t just come and think it’s like turning on the tap on Saturday to produce results. You need that mentality that when you go through the gates at Chiefs you show it on the field.”

Amakhosi have already terminated the contracts of Virgil Vries, Khotso Malope, Hendrick Ekstein, Bhongolwethu Jayiya, Gustavo Paez and Ryan Moon, while as many as “about five or six” to follow, according to Bartlett.

Chiefs finished the 2018/19 season outside the Top Eight and lost the Nedbank Cup title to NFD side TS Galaxy two weekends ago.
