Zwane On Doors Opening For Players At Chiefs

Arthur Zwane has challenged ‘fringe players’ at Kaizer Chiefs to seize the opportunity presented by the club's injured trio.

The Soweto giants were without star player Keagan Dolly, in-demand striker Samir Nurkovic and Kearyn Baccus but still managed to secure a 1-0 win over Sekhukhune United in a league game thanks to a Ramahlwe Mphahlele strike at Emirates Airline Park on Saturday afternoon.

Dolly suffered a calf injury that will likely rule him out for 6-8 weeks during a midweek training session, while Nukovic is sidelined due to a knee injury and Baccus sustained a strain in the thigh.

“It’s the nature of this game, where the key players are having challenges here and there due to injuries, but we will see what we can do,” Zwane, Chiefs caretaker coach said via the club’s official website. 

“Opportunities and things like this do happen; they open doors for other players who have not been playing regularly. We are willing to give them the opportunity to showcase their talent and express themselves.

Zwane added: “We believe in them, and it is only fair that we give these players a fair opportunity so that when the time comes, the team decides to release them, at least they would have been given a fair chance to prove themselves and take it on.” 

Gordon Igesund reveals his thoughts on the dreaded relegation battles and the tension that goes along with it.
