Nauseb: That’s How Chiefs' Turnaround Started…

Robert Nauseb – the Kaizer Chiefs midfield star of the late 90s, has identified what he believes led to the turnaround of Amakhosi this season in their Absa Premiership title-chasing campaign.

Chiefs have had an impressive 2019/20 campaign, having won 15 out of the 22 matches they have played to date, and amassing 48 points in the process and sitting top of the log standings.

For the better part of the campaign, the Soweto giants have looked as serious contenders for the league title, although Mamelodi Sundowns have since closed the gap to only four points at the top and with a game in hand, after playing the bulk of their catch up matches.

Nauseb, who won the Rothmans Cup and Bobsave Super Bowl trophies with the Naturena club among some of the achievements, has lauded the club’s head coach Ernst Middendorp for this season’s progress. 

“To be honest and looking at the team this season, and especially looking at the coach himself, the Middendorp that I saw the first time when he went to Chiefs and the Middendorp that is at Chiefs now, I see a little bit of a difference,” Nauseb told the Siya crew.

“He is calmer this time around. He is more relaxed than the previous time he was there. That’s where the whole thing started. I think the turnaround for Chiefs started from the coach himself with his calmness. The calmness he has brought to the team has rubbed off to the players. The players are not that tense and they play calmly. He brought a different dimension and different mind-set. Maybe he asked himself what is it that he needed to change from the time he was there before,” the Namibian legend added.
