A former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder is worried about the morale in the team and has suggested that a meeting is needed between the technical team and the players to improve the situation.
Chiefs suffered their second loss of the season on the weekend, after going down 4-1 to Royal AM at FNB Stadium on Saturday.
Amakhosi are 12th on the DStv Premiership log with just four points from one win and draw in four games, and will face an unpredictable Marumo Gallants on Sunday in their next fixture.
Former Chiefs midfielder, Ntokozo Sikhakhane, is worried about what he believes are the low levels of confidence in the Amakhosi camp.
“After watching the match, I think the players are not confident. You can tell that from their body language. I don’t know if it’s because they also lost against Sundowns recently or what, but you can see that the players are not relaxed and it’s like they are always under pressure. I always say that in football you need confident players for a team to perform. Look at Sundowns, you can see that their players are confident, and they are enjoying themselves on the field,” said Sikhakhane, speaking to the Siya crew.
“But when you look at Chiefs, they look tense and it’s like they are just playing for the sake of playing to honour the games. I don’t know if there are tensions inside the camp, or what. The coaches and players need to sit down and have a meeting because this whole thing that is happening at the club because it is going to cost them going forward. They can’t even combine to string five or six passes together. It’s like it’s each man for himself at Chiefs,” he added.
