Chiefs’ Coach On Team Falling To 13th, Slams Ref

Kaizer Chiefs' MDC Side Are Struggling So Far

By Soccer Laduma - Oct 05, 2017 10:49 AM
Arthur Zwane says that Kaizer Chiefs’ Multichoice Diski Challenge team can take positives, despite the fact that they are sat in 13th place on the league table after four games.
 
 
The Amakhosi’s MDC side have won just one of their opening four matches, and with three defeats to their name, are in some of the worst form in the division. Only AmaZulu and Mamelodi Sundowns have less points.
 
Yet Zwane is taking looking for positives going forward, and he thinks that the referee in their Cape Town City defeat last weekend did not help their situation.
 
He told the club’s official website, “We went into this fixture as part of our development programme… The opposition, however, played to win at all cost and the referee didn’t make it easy for us as well.
 
“We conceded a soft penalty early in the match. When that happens, it interferes with your plans. I thought the lads did well to maintain the shape, while at the same time pile on the pressure in an attempt to score.
 
“I thought the referee committed a blunder to allow their second goal to stand as it was clearly an offsite goal. From there on, City sat back, started cramping with their player sitting down on the pitch at every given opportunity. I thought that was unsporting of them, especially at the development level.”
 
However, Zwane is encouraged by what he’s seen, specifically praising two of the younger players in the side, Njabulo Blom and Thabo Mokwena.
 
He continued, “We will not be derailed though. We know the results won’t sit well with our stakeholders, but I want to assure everyone that we are using these kinds of setbacks to learn. Checking the log standings, it doesn’t look good, but we will overcome these obstacles to reach our objectives.
 
“We had a debutant in the centre of defence, the 17-year-old Njabulo Blom. He partnered the one year younger Thabo Mokwena, who has been playing before for the MDC side. They both played like seasoned campaigners.
 
 “We will take positives from this loss and continue with our development programme, undeterred. We are not used to this position at this point of the MDC league fixtures, however, we will turn the tables soon.”
 
Chiefs take on fellow strugglers, Sundowns, in their next game this weekend.

Excuses Mr Zwane sir...truth is you got the material for that level but you just not good enough.aren't you the one who was saying not long ago that Chiefs is about winning regardless of the level? So what's wrong with city playing to win? You were a good player sir but definitely not a good coach.

Now it's clear that the problem at Chiefs got nothing to do with Bra Steve, management and administration is the issue there.

@msanisto, 1stly, this guy's name is Arther Zwane not Mandla.... 2ndly, he deliberately handled a ball denying Santos a winning goal as a result Santos got relegated then Chiefs won the league

So the development structure is not supposed to go for a win at all costs? What kind of mentality is Mandla Zwane teaching those youngsters? He should be the last to talk about winning at all costs. We still remember how he bluntly held a ball by hand to deny Free State Stars a cup in front of the referee who turned a blind eye. Chiefs indeed won the cup.
