Chiefs’ Attacking Record As Cardoso Insists 'It’s Not A One Man Sport'

Daniel Cardoso has had a difficult campaign this season and has come under fire from some Kaizer Chiefs supporters, and the defender knows that the pressure is on for the Amakhosi.
 
 
The Glamour Boys are currently 13th in the Absa Premiership after five games, and at this point are yet to pick up their first win of the season. He’s been a part of that as they conceded seven goals in the league and nine in the MTN8, but he is also worried by their lack of goalscoring prowess. 
 
Chiefs are ninth in the league when it comes to shot conversions (just 7.8% of their shot have resulted in goals), and are 10th with regards to shots on target. Only 26.6% of 64 shots so far have managed to test the goalkeeper.
 
The club is second in the charts with the percentage of passes in the final third (22.1%) and second with total final third passes per game (115.4), but are seventh in the division in terms of goals per game – they average just one per match at this stage.
 
Speaking in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, the 29-year-old defender spoke about individual errors, saying, “If you allow mistakes to get to you, they will shake you up big time. I mean, I go to a petrol station or mall and they will be like, “Yeah, you cost us, man!” You know what, football is not a one man sport and if you can’t score goals, what do you want us to do?”
