As much as I may be accused of getting ahead of myself for even comparing Kaizer Chiefs to, well the people who play like they invented the game, Barcelona, even you have to admit that the current football which is being played by Chiefs is pretty good.
Chiefs have shown how much more, less can be. Keeping it simple with fewer touches means the ball does all the traveling. The genius of this system is also in the manner in which it hides the flaws of players.
Note: Willard Katsande is not the most technical footballer right? But with the “transition” football he doesn’t have to be as he only gets a few touches on the ball.
Another example is Reneilwe Letsholonyane who has lost a yard or two, yet the system we play you would never guess that Yeye one of the key players in midfield is not that fast. In our transition football Yeye only needs to concern himself with his positioning.
Transition football also means you cannot single out any particular player as the main instigator, therefore which individual do you pick out when you playing aginst Chiefs?
Oh yes, Chiefs may not be Barcelona, but in the PSL they are the closest thing!
