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

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.
