Ex-Chiefs Player: Amakhosi Must Spend Big

Former Kaizer Chiefs Defender: Amakhosi Need To Spend Big

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 04, 2018 09:08 AM
Kaizer Chiefs will need to splash the cash in the transfer market if they are to compete with the PSL's best, according to a former Amakhosi player.
The Glamour Boys once again fell short in the 2017/18 campaign after finishing third in the Absa Premiership and losing in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals, which marked a third successive trophyless season at Naturena and resulted in the departure of head coach Steve Komphela.
With the hunt for a new coach also comes the need to strengthen options, and former Chiefs and Bafana Bafana defender David Kannemeyer has pinpointed the attacking department as a focal point for the Soweto giants.
Kannemeyer highlighted Mamelodi Sundowns forward Percy Tau's 11-goal haul as the difference between success and failure in the Absa Premiership this term and knows Chiefs will need a similar attacking threat if they are to topple the Brazilians next term.
"At the moment, Chiefs don't have that (a double-digits striker)," Kannemeyer told the Siya crew. "And I think that's where we're lacking: scoring goals."
When asked what the Chiefs bosses could do to rectify that issue, Kannemeyer was direct in his assessment, suggesting the Soweto giants need to start matching their rivals when it comes to spending in the transfer market.
He said: "I think they (Chiefs) need to go into the market, even if it means like the way Sundowns are buying players, and if you look at the last five to six years, what players did Chiefs really sign?
"And I think that's a result of Chiefs not winning trophies.
"But I think if they can open the chequebook and go out there and go get what the clubs need, they should be on the right track for next season."

Chiefs do have offensive players to compete at the highest level, they just hired Development Coach instead of Championship winning Coach

I disagree with you there kanemeyer.Chiefs don't need to sign strikers as as they already have enough in that department. What we need is a good coach who can utilize them.We have good attacking players in the team namely :Shaba,Molongoane,Mahlasela,Nt shangase,Eksteen,Castro,Paez,P arker,Moon,Bunting and more......What we need is defensive midfielder like Andile Jali and a good coach or they can keep Zwane and Mabedi in coaching position.

Stupid kannemeyer, spend on who? for what? chiefs has players , they should be getting rid of players not signing. We have players in the team not the old shabba and katsandes, we have Bvuma ,gordinho, cardoso, khumalo, moleko or mphahlele, ntiya ntiya, mahlasela, jayiya, zuma, molangoane, ntshangase, moon, castro, letlotlo, ngcobo, bunting, meyiwa. Why must we buy now for what? Chiefs must wake up or no 3 wont be possible next season or we will go out early in africa

Talk is cheap to the likes of Kannemeyer. Do you really mean that Chiefs should do business like Sundowns? Sundowns is reckless in the market because they have Patrice Motsepe's money. Look at Brockie's deal. What has he done for Sundowns? Chiefs have quality strikers but they do not have creative midfielders to supply strikers. In defense they are good, hence they conceded less goals last season.
