Former South African junior international star, Junior Khanye, has revealed what hurts him when comparing Kaizer Chiefs to Orlando Pirates when the two powerhouses of South African football play.
For a chance to win the Absa Premiership title this season, Chiefs may have to emulate Pirates in how they play, according to the former midfielder.
The Daveyton-born former star has not been impressed with Amakhosi’s movement and speed when going forward in some of their matches this season.
In arguing his point, Khanye used Pirates’ 4-1 win over AmaZulu as his reference point, while also revealing that he hopes Amakhosi could play like that.
“Look at Pirates, they played with seven attackers when they scored four goals against AmaZulu. Seven attackers! They left only Musa (Nyatama) to look out for opposition’s attacks in midfield when they attack. (Kudakwashe) Mahachi, (Luvuyo) Memela, (Innocent) Maela, (Justin) Shonga, (Thembinkosi) Lorch, Vincent Pule and Ben Motshwari were all attacking and you saw the result,” said Khanye.
“It was (an) attack after attack and it was very beautiful to watch. It could have been 10 goals. Chiefs can’t make even five touches sometimes and I get hurt,” he added.
