Is the inability of chiefs to acquire the services of top quality players from other PSL teams is down to its relationship with other teams? Is the level of professionalism in the chiefs is deteriorating with Bobby Motaung being in the middle of this downfall? The team prefers free agents, which at some stage negatively impacts the negotiations between the player and his current team.
It must come into question whether Kaizer Chiefs have good relationships with the teams such as Golden Arrows, Aces, Wits, Chippa, Celtic, Maritzburg, Cosmos. Is this why they’re unable to acquire players? Then there’s the case of Pirates and Sundowns. Beside their relationships, it is very rare to see these teams selling players to Chiefs. With Chippa, Celtic and Maritzburg, it might down to recent fights for players and the way Steve left Maritzburg United.
This has made life difficult for Chiefs to buy players from the team. Vila had reportedly long expressed his desire to join Chiefs, but nothing materialised. Rusike, Morena, Qalinge, Mzwakali were all linked, but perhaps due to a lack of professionalism from Chiefs, other teams were reluctant to sell.
Is it that the manner in which Bobby conducts his business with other teams is a challenge for Chiefs? His attitude and behaviour is really not helping the team. Good conduct is the first professional tool the players and teams use to decide their destination.
The way to approach, communicate, negotiate and motivate your case will convince your counterparts to deal with in a respectful manner.
Do you think Chiefs conduct their dealings professionally?
