Blunt Chiefs: The Amakhosi’s Top Scorers

Kaizer Chiefs Have Really Struggled In Front Of Goal

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 03, 2018 05:00 PM

Kaizer Chiefs have had a problem in front of goal this season, a problem that Steve Komphela has often spoken about, and it means that their top scorer has only five goals in all competitions. 

Take a look at Chiefs' goalscorers and their stats by clicking right above

The Amakhosi are currently fifth in the Absa Premiership and into the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup, but only Platinum Stars (15) have scored fewer goals than them (20) in the league.
 
 
Only Siphiwe Tshabalala has directly contributed to more than 10 goals this season in all competitions (four goals and eight assists), and Ryan Moon is their top scorer with just five goals to his name. 
 
‘Shabba’ and Bernard Parker follow Moon with four goals across all competitions each, while Leonardo Castro, Gustavo Paez and Erick Mathoho have three to their name. Only 12 players in their entire squad have managed to find the back of the net at all. 
 
 
What will be most worrying for Steve Komphela is that this problem isn’t a new one for the Glamour Boys, with no player reaching double figures since Knowledge Musona (15) and Parker (11) in 2013/14. 
 
Chiefs take on Free State Stars this weekend as they look to keep up their slim hopes of catching Mamelodi Sundowns at the top of the table, but will certainly need to bring an end to their strike problems if they’re going to do so.
 
Why do you think Chiefs struggle to score goals?

I hope Kaizer Chiefs' strikers are watching the game of Ajax and AmaZulu especially Ecstein as he can't shoot st goal. These players like those at Highlands Park shoot at the poles even if they are not facing the goals. Chiefs players are lazy to shoot. They need to stay behind after training and practise target shooting instead of rushing to their fancy cars to go to Izoso [(shisa nyama (fanakalo)].

I WISH, I repeat I WISH those blunt strikers can start scoring now when it matters most. Chiefs haters know when last did Castro score when Chiefs signed him, can they remind me please! All I remember about him scoring is that currently since arrival at Chiefs in January he has scored only 3 goals! But still better than some very expensive player that everybody knows who's still a virgin.

Chiefs have scored 98% of their goals from set pieces, but you'll read reptiles saying Chiefs have top class training resources than all PSL teams.

Goals are not coming fluently at kaizer chiefs . its became our coach is playing more defensive look at this khune,mphahlele,Zulu,cardoso,h adebe,ngezane,katsande,malulek a these 8 players are all played and started 80% of kaizer chiefs games. Then Steve always add three attacking players to make 11 players. Just like this ,he will add shabba,malongoane,peaz. Together its : khune,ngezana,Zulu,cardoso,had ebe,mphahlele,katsande,malulek a,shabba,malongoane,paez, when its time for substitute, he will talk shabba out and put ekstein,paez out and put moon. The whole season playing draws or win by one goal or losses. Most of the cows here are only going forward to heard the ball when its corner kick or free kicks. Its only shabba who score with his one leg among all this cows sometimes malongoane. I'm exposing Steve khompela let me keep quite kikikikikikiki

Quality players who s gonna supply our strikers althore we hv sum bt favouratism kill chiefs,if kompela cn use Ntshangase as more attacking as well Ekstein and Katsande to protect our defense and destroy every loose ball things cld be different,Paez,Castro,Moon even Parker they got eyes for goals bt supplyer is not good,althore u see sum of Moon goals came fro luck bt we knw to be spot on in the field u need Luck

Attackers club have are good but few will be better in future not now.Chiefs have best 9s aand quality but wrong 7s and 11s.The coach's main formation requires competitive 11 not competitive some. Future still bright
