Kaizer Chiefs talisman Keagan Dolly has revealed what is required if Kaizer Chiefs are to have the edge against Mamelodi Sundowns to start competing for silverware again.
The last time the Soweto giants added to their sterling cabinet was in 2015 when they won the then Absa Premiership under current coach Stuart Baxter. Instead, it is the trophy cabinet in Chloorkop that has been stacking up with Sundowns ousting their more esteemed counterparts in virtually every trophy on offer in the local scene, while leaving their footprint on the continent too.
Having contributed massively to Sundowns; success in the past, Dolly knows all about the requirements of winning silverware and has revealed what his Chiefs side need to do if they are to get into the habit of winning trophies once again.
“Look, Sundowns didn’t just become Sundowns overnight, they worked on it, and I think that’s what we are trying to do at Chiefs now,” he told the media at a press conference ahead of the Soweto Derby.
“We have a few good, exciting players and we are trying to get the perfect combinations and you can see sometimes during the game the coach will play this player instead of that player and it’s a journey. It’s a work in progress and I think once we do get it right, we will start competing for silverware and we’ll start having ambitions to play in Africa and I think that will come once we start getting the identity we want as a team, and we are working on it,” he explained.
Chiefs came close to ending their drought last season when they reached the final of the CAF Champions League although they were swept aside by Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly in Morocco.
