10 REASONS KAIZER CHIEFS FANS SHOULD RELAX
- The best team in Mzansi, Mamelodi Sundowns, have had the same technical team since 2020.
- A new project takes two to three seasons to bare fruit.
- Building a new squad takes an average of three transfer windows, not one.
- New players generally settle during their second season after joining a new club.
- Kaizer Chiefs still have until 22 September to sign at least one more striker.
- Coach Zwane is yet to find his best starting 11.
- The starting team will soon help form a suitable playing formation.
- The new existing back four defence requires an extended number of games to understand each other.
- Every opponent gives 100% at this stage of the season until squad quality begins to show later.
- Zwane is still developing as a PSL head coach.
So, it is both too early to go wild on social media after one flying performance or to dismiss anyone after one poor result. Fans should expect plenty of ups and downs.
Meanwhile, the Glamour Boys are now preparing for a trip to Durban. The club will play their home game against Richards Bay at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday 20 August at 20:00.
