Latest rumours suggest that one of Kaizer Chiefs FC development team graduate might be on his way out of Kaizer Chiefs FC.
After lacking a game time under the former head coach Molefi Ntseki, Happy Mashiane might join another team on a loan. According to the rumours, Mashiane might join Stellenbosch FC and earn himself an experience.
Apart from that our analyser Senzo Sambo has commented about Ranga Chivaviro and Jansond Gonzalez.
“Ranga Chivaviro and Jansond Gonzalez are proving my statement right. Kaizer Chiefs do not have a striking problem, that is why i laughed when people said we need a striker, because we are not scoring goals.
“Even last season under Zwane people kept on saying we are creating chances we need a striker, and i kept opposing such statements because i knew that those things said by Supporters are not true.
“People confuse a Half Chance with a Clear chance, a team that cannot create atleast 4 clear chances in a match is not a team that needs a static striker like Chivaviro, Gonzalez, a team that rarely makes box entries cannot be having such strikers. Kaizer Chiefs rarely make 3 to 4 touches in the final third and get behind the opponents defense, yet supporters kept calling for a striker.
“You have a team like Mamelodi Sundowns one of the most fluent teams in the country, a team that penetrates,plays inbetween the lines,utilizes the half spaces, diagonal balls, chip in ball in the final third,Passing patterns in Midfield, Combination plays in the final third yet they don’t even have a statics striker that does hold up play, but thina with a team that can’t even combine 6touches in the final third we go and buy static strikers.”
In other news, before leaving Kaizer Chiefs FC, head coach Molefi Ntseki spoke about the influence and role the recently appointed head of Academy Cavin Johnson has in the first team.
The former Al Ahly assistant coach was appointed last month to oversee the club’s youth academy and scouting.
The 64-year-old has been involved with the development of young players before at Transnet School of Excellence as well as the Royal Bafokeng Sports Academy.
Ntseki was asked ahead of the Carling Knockout Cup clash against AmaZulu FC about the role Johnson has with the first team.

“So, coach Cavin Johnson will always be part of our technical meetings. He has a vast amount of experience in the game. So it is always very interesting for us to be having those technical conversations.
“But I think the most important thing is that he has got respect and confidence in our team. In terms of how we do things. It is just a matter of time before things fall into place. But like I said every member of Kaizer Chiefs, we always engage and involve ourselves in our discussions,” he added.
Amakhosi are set to host AmaZulu FC in the Last 16 rounds of the Carling Knockout on Saturday. It will be the second meeting between the two clubs this season with Chiefs coming out 3-0 victorious in the DStv Premiership clash in August.
“What I have always been saying is that every game we play is a cup game. So we have not been winning Cup games and I think now it’s the time for us to turn the corner.
“We fully understand that it comes with hard work, it comes with proper preparation going into this match. At the same time you give respect to your opponent. At the same time, there is only one team that has to win on Saturday,” said Ntseki ahead of the match.
