Chiefs Lift Lid On Amakhosi Development…
It’s been a bit of a mixed bag for Kaizer Chiefs at the start of the new MultiChoice Diski Challenge, and Arthur Zwane has spoken about what they’re trying to teach…
The Glamour Boys got off to a fine start in week one of the MDC as they thumped Golden Arrows 4-1, but then fell to a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Highlands Park in the second game week.
Chiefs have had plenty of success with regards to youth progression at the club in recent years, with the likes of Happy Mashiane, Siyabonga Ngezana, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo and Lorenzo Gordinho just some of the names to have taken the step up to senior level.
Zwane, who has been tasked with making sure that conveyor belt continues, has given some insight into what they’re doing with the Chiefs reserves in order to provide more players for the first team.
Speaking to the club’s official website prior to that loss to the Lions of the North, ‘10111’ said, “At the Development level it is all about repetition… We have few boys coming from the junior teams, for example Tshepo Myeni and Khumbulani Ncube from U19. So far they are settling in very well in the reserve team.
“It is for the newly promoted players to adapt because we endeavor to keep the formation consistent from our U13. We are still at the early stages after one game. We are not checking much of what the opponents are doing. We focus on our strengths going into every game.”
“We use three formations in one game, we are unpredictable. We focus on our strengths and that’s what we will do throughout this season.”
Next up for Chiefs’ reserves is a clash with Mamelodi Sundowns at Makhulong Stadium this weekend.
