Baloyi: Chiefs Must Produce Their Own

Former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, Brian Baloyi, believes that the Amakhosi should focus on their development structures.

Chiefs have been looking to strengthen the team ahead of the club’s commitments in the CAF Champions League, and confirmed yesterday that Ugandan international, Ivan Bukenya, has signed for the club.

Bukenya is a welcomed addition to coach Stuart Baxter’s side, who will add depth to the side’s defence, however is a firm believer in nurturing young talent. 

The keeper believes that signing new players isn’t necessarily the way forward. Instead, the 39-year-old is a big advocate of youth development.

He told the Siya crew, “I lean towards the development side of things. Back in the day I came through the ranks with a few others. I think out of the whole squad at the moment, only Itumeleng Khune and Lucky Baloyi came through the development ranks."

Baloyi added, "It think it’s time for Chiefs to go back to their roots and produce their own players. Yes, playing in Africa isn’t a walk in the park and half the things you hear reported (about the hardships of travel in Africa), don't come close to what really goes on. You grow as a footballer and as a person from these experiences. That’s why I say that Chiefs must produce their own and then throw them in the deep end, hey.”
