There have been compliments all round for Kaizer Chiefs and the club’s interim coach Arthur Zwane, following the team’s improved performance in their most recent match against Mamelodi Sundowns on the weekend.
Following the 1-1 draw at FNB Stadium on Sunday afternoon, there has been revival of hope for Amakhosi faithful and many associated with the club while there have been calls for Zwane to be given a chance to lead the team permanently next season.
Surprisingly, former Orlando Pirates striker James Mothibi has joined in the calls for Zwane to be given a chance to lead the Soweto giants in the 2021/22 season.
“Look, I would like to talk to you about Chiefs today because I was very impressed with how the team played against Sundowns. They were top class, and I don’t know why they have not been performing like that throughout the season. It’s been proven again that under Arthur Zwane, Chiefs players can perform, and I am happy for the younger players because they stand a good chance of playing and do well under him,” said Mothibi.
“Some coaches tend to restrict our players too much and frustrate them by not allowing them to use their natural talent by saying that they want them to stick to modern football. Some of us never grew up playing like that and to be expected to play that way at professional level can be difficult and can limit the ability of some of our players. Sometimes modern football needs to be complemented with street football as that has always been our way of playing,” the ex-forward added.
