Chiefs Star Worried About Job Loss: We’re Breadwinners!

Willard Katsande Is Worried About His Kaizer Chiefs Teammates

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 13, 2018 01:04 PM
Kaizer Chiefs midfield star, Willard Katsande, says it would be painful to see some of his teammates lose their jobs at the end of the season after the club confirmed a ‘complete overhaul’.
 
 
The club said in a statement this week that, after three mostly disappointing seasons, the club would be making big changes in the off-season, suggesting that time has run out for some of the players at Naturena, as well as possibly Steve Komphela – whose contract expires shortly.
 
Katsande has been almost ever-present for the Glamour Boys, not just this season but for the last six, signed a new long-term contract last year, although there appears to be no suggestion as to who is safe from the chop and who isn’t.
 
Speaking to the media on Thursday, the midfield lynchpin said, “We were hired to do a job for this club. As a result, we know the consequences when things are not going well or according to plan. I don’t know the details in terms of what will happen at the end of the season, but we have to take whatever happens as professionals. 
 
"What I can say is that it’s painful for me to see my colleagues lose their jobs because we are breadwinners at home, but at the same time we need the club to be competing for trophies. It is up to management to take the right steps.” 
 
 
Meanwhile, regarding the end of the season, Katsande just wants his side to finish on a high as they chase the cup and a spot in the CAF Confederation Cup.
 
He said, “The last four league games are about quality performances. We also need the confidence heading into the Nedbank Cup semi-final against Free State Stars. It goes without saying that at some point you won’t find yourself at the same club. That is the nature of the job. But for now, nobody knows what tomorrow holds. We just need to finish the season on a high,”
 
Chiefs take on Platinum Stars on Sunday as they target a return to winning ways after the embarrassing 3-0 defeat to Chippa United.

its very sad indeed, Motaung is crazy , he is scared to fire Steve,because is speaking dictionary English, now is talking shit, first of all you must fire KHOMPELA.the boys are playing very well.the only problem at chiefs is a coach , is misleading the players, nothing wrong with players,Since when Malongaone plays a right back? we have Mphahlele, Moleko and other two fresh legs from reserve side.he brought Ntshangase to make him a bench warmer ,why is playing with our minds . Motaung must stop being a car ward he must be a man. No player deserve to be jobless in Naturena, the only part you can do is give Bra Steve a free clearance .get us a good coach, somebody who is willing to work .not somebody who can speak English .we don't need a teacher we only need a coach. you will end up watching your team alone Mr Motaung. stop victimize the players please

The problem is mainly with management.failing to manage the team properly and buy quality players who can deliver and credible technical team with track record of winning or potential to manage bigger clubs. Bobby and Kaizer are not immune to chiefs poor run over 3 years. They are part of the problem.

Komphela must lose his job and the new coach must decide who he and does not need in the team. Secondly chiefs Management must stop this nonsense of buying players for the coach, the coach must decide on the players he desires for the team so that the blame can be squarely on him if the team fails to deliver. We have a lot of deadwood in our team and it is all thanks to Chiefs Management because they buy players not at Kaizer chiefs level and free agents. They must start paying big monies to buy players that fit in Chiefs style of play.

When there is darkness all over, no one can see! How many new players have come in for the past three seasons and none can perform, really? It doesn't need Rocket Science.

The current crop of players indeed need a complete overhaul, both technical team and players not gud enough for a rich team like Chiefs. When Katsande came in Nengomasha was leaving and team won a numerous silverware. Life goes on Willy
