“Chiefs Are Building A Team For The Future” – Reader’s Voice

Kaizer Chiefs have signed young players like Bruce Bvuma, Emmanuel Letlotlo, Ryan Moon, Keagan Buchanan and Siyabonga Ngezama and it seems to be the case that they are building a team for the future.

Every big team in the world knows that the best way to build an unstoppable team is to bring in youngsters who will grow at the club, in a way that allows them to become both familiar with their culture and with their style of play.

Barcelona were able to build an unstoppable team, with the likes of Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Gerard Pique and Lionel Messi all emerging from the youth academy. Manchester United, with the likes of Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, David Beckham and Gary Neville managed the same when they won the treble in 1999.

A team like Ajax Cape Town has been trying to do the same, locally, every season, but have failed to be truly successful. However, Ajax have produced some serious quality, with the likes of Khama Billiat, Steven Pienaar, Thulani Serero and Willard Katsande all emerging from their ranks. Chiefs won’t have to sell players on like Ajax, because they don’t need the money and can afford to pay high wages.

So, Chiefs may be having a good run of form right now and fans will demand results. But, if the youngsters can slowly work their way into the team, it’s possible that we could see them build a legacy.

Do you think Chiefs are building a team for the future?
