'Chiefs Need To Go Back To Their Roots'

A former Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach believes that the club needs to revisit their roots, should they want to sustain their success beyond the current season.

Amakhosi are top of the log in the Absa Premiership, with eight games left to play, on course to winning their first Absa Premiership title after a four-year drought.

However, despite the results which are forthcoming, Chiefs have not been playing the attractive brand of football that they’ve been famous for and some believe that it may not be a sustainable style of play should they want to bring back the glory days.

Speaking to the Siya crew this week, former Chiefs assistant coach Farouk Khan believes that Amakhosi’s approach this season does not have a long life span which they can continue to build their success on.

“Chiefs need to go back to their roots and find out what has been their philosophy of play. Okay it wasn’t something that was written down in a document but having worked for Chiefs I know that Kaizer (Motaung) is a great believer in playing a possession based game and playing a game which is easy on the eye, attractive and attacking football and I think to be quite honest, that hasn’t been the case with Kaizer Chiefs,” he said.

“This season, they haven’t played attractive football – yes they have played attacking which has been more direct in approach and it has to some extent brought the results required. Is that a short-term solution so that once they get back to winning ways they will reinvent their philosophy? I don’t know, I don’t know if they will continue playing like this but in the long-term, this approach doesn’t have a long lifespan, if you look back at coaches who have won leagues over a period of time using the same philosophy, it has been a one or two season success story and then after that, all crumbles,” he added.
