Ex-Chiefs Star Identifies Two Big Challenges At Amakhosi

Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Rene Richards has identified two big challenges facing the Soweto giants following their poor start to the season.

Chiefs' tough start to the DStv Premiership season continued over the weekend as they suffered a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Royal AM at FNB Stadium, leaving the side with just one win. 

Richards said the defence and striker situation needs a special look if they hope to improve on their disappointing start.

"It was an embarrassing loss, I think they are not clinical upfront, they are missing lots of chances," Richards told the Siya crew.

"At the back, there's too much zone marking instead of man-to-man marking, that's why the opposition always punishes them, because they get spaces.

"They need to be tight at the back, be strong on ones-on-ones, not allowing attackers to get freedom in that box, and protect their goalkeepers."

The former Chiefs midfielder has also come out to defend the senior players at the club.

"I think it should be mixture of young and senior players, we shouldn't be discrediting the experienced players, because if they were not good enough they won't be at Chiefs," he added.
