THE BREAKDOWN: Does Katsvairo Deserve Chiefs Stay?

Michelle Katsairo's season at Kaizer Chiefs - Did it work out?

By Kyle Smith - Jul 23, 2017 11:30 AM @KyleLaduma

 

Kaizer Chiefs’ Michelle Katsvairo is set to be sent out on loan after falling out of favour and we look at whether the club should reconsider their decision and give him another chance. 

Chiefs Trialists That Never Signed

Click through the images above to see Katsvairo’s detailed stats for the 2016/17 Absa Premiership season.

In Soccer Laduma issue number 1032, it was revealed that Katsvairo has not attracted any interest from other clubs with regards to taking the player on board for a loan stint. As a result, the player’s future remains up in the air.

However, should Katsvairo’s quality be judged on the fact that he scored just one goal throughout the course of last season’s campaign?

The Zimbabwean generally struggled for playing time, playing just 728 minutes, but managed to generate a lot of shots – his 2.47 shots per 90 minutes average led the charts for all of Chiefs’ players (with a minimum 450 minutes played), and 80% of his shots were inside the box. However, just 30% of his shots hit the target, as he failed to hit the target from some good positions.

The other problem was that his general involvement in the final third was not flattering, completing just 59.2% of his final third passes, as he had just 0.62 shot assists per 90 minutes. Furthermore, completing just 23.1% of his 1.6 open play crosses per 90 did not speak well for his ability to deliver balls into the box from the wings either.

Former Boca Juniors Striker Arrives For Chiefs Assessment

To put this into context, however, the 27-year-old only managed to play in the first half of the season, last playing on 14 December against Bloemfontein Celtic and had very little time to adapt. Perhaps his statistics aren’t reflective of his ability, but Steve Komphela is the only man that can truly answer that question.

 

Do you think Katsvairo deserves another chance to prove his quality at Chiefs?

Good player that wasn't used according to his strength. He is not a 9. He must be used either as a 2nd striker or a winger

don't let this boy go.he only played in difficult times when Chiefs as whole was playing rub**sh .To complete 3 passes was a mountain to climb for almost the whole first half of the season last year.Only in the second half did we see a better chiefs and Katsvairo was nowhere next to the starting eleven at that time.Even a good player like Paez can become a clueless cow and be forgotten if the whole team is not functional .Katsvairo is a good player. he deserves another chance.

it's sad to see some players becoming scapegoats of the team's bad performance last season whereas infact the whole team that started the season last year was supposed to be loaned. the guy is not bad at all

even if chiefs can sign Ntshangase our coach wont be able to use him just like those other players, it will be useless to sign him

@dr ss zondi Modern game time is to attack with two backs. That does'nt mean that he is good.
