Katsande On Why Chiefs Miss Nkhatha

Kaizer Chiefs lynchpin, Willard Katsande, says that the club definitely misses Kingston Nkhatha, but that he feels they have players who can now step up.

Chiefs lost Nkhatha to SuperSport United back in January, and this week, with the Zimbabwean’s help, Matsatsantsa inflicted Chiefs’ first defeat in 24 league games.

Now, as Chiefs look to regroup ahead of this weekend’s Nedbank Cup game with Edu Sports, Katsande admits that he will miss his compatriot.

Speaking in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, the midfielder said, “I think it will have a big impact. You know, he had his own kind of playing style that is different from the other strikers, so for that reason we will miss his services a lot.

“Obviously he is my homeboy and I am going to miss him. We just have to soldier on… life goes on. We wish him good luck where he is going. He is a good player and we are going to miss him.

“We are all going to miss him, but we just need to do what we need to do on the field of play and win games. Anytime a player leaves you feel his absence, so we are really going to miss him.”

When asked who could fill Nkhatha’s role, Katsande said, “Kingston played a holding role amongst the strikers and I know there are other players who can play that role. We have Siphelele Mthembu who I think can play like that, though not in the very same way.

“We have enough strikers, but not of the same style as Kingston. He has his own unique style. The strikers that we have are very good, but they all have different styles. But it's all up to the technical team and the coach to see who can play that role now.”
