PSL Rival Coach Weighs In On Chiefs Recruits

The fact that Kaizer Chiefs have signed four players that are not “accustomed” to the Premier Soccer League will not be a disadvantage for the club.

It is the view held by a coach at a rival club – Bidvest Wits’ Gavin Hunt.

Amakhosi have so far announced the arrival of two midfielders in James Kotei (Ghana) and Kearyn Baccus (born in SA, but signed from an Australian team) as well as strikers Lazarous Kambole (Zambia) and Samir Nurkovic (Serbia).

“You can do that in the PSL, you can sign players that are not accustomed to the league – it’s one league in the world where you can bring in unknowns and be competitive, like I have always done,” Hunt said in a wide-ranging interview.

“That is not going to write off the normal (title) contenders. I think Chiefs will be back in it, being a lot more organised now that the coach has been there for some time now. They have a whole fresh new look and fresh impetus.”

Wits, who finished in third place last season as Mamelodi Sundowns ran out title winners, will begin their campaign away to AmaZulu on August 3. Chiefs travel to Makhulong Stadium to face Highlands Park in their Absa Premiership opener with coach Ernst Middendorp still very much at the helm.
