Before the start of the current season, Kaizer Chiefs FC announced the contract renewal of the long serving goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune. On the mentioned announcement, the club made it clear that this current season will be his last season at Chiefs as a player.
It has been reported that it seems like Kaizer Chiefs FC management and technical team already has a replacement for Khune. According to Chiefs technical team analysis, the Kaizer Chiefs FC development goalkeeper Lungile Nkosi will be replacing Khune with his capabilities.
At the moment, Itumeleng Khune is competing against the likes of Brandon Petersen, Bruce Bvuma and Bontle Molefe.
Apart from that, Kaizer Chiefs FC head coach Molefi Ntseki has explained the reasons behind Kaizer Chiefs’ struggles in front of goal, an issue the side has been facing since last season.
“I think goalscoring is a problem. But, at the same time the preparations and the training. It is not only on the technical side of it when you prepare a team. Especially, when it comes to your offensive play and goalscoring. It is also the mental side of it,” said Ntseki.
“When you look at it now, when we miss one goal we get more worried about missing too many and we end up missing too many. “So, I think it is more of a mental side of it for players to understand that chances are coming from different angles of the game.
“I think finishing and scoring it is something we are working very hard on especially for our attacking players.”
In other news, SuperSport United head coach Gavin Hunt has picked what’s more important to him between winning the league title or a cup competition.
“I’m an old-fashioned [coach], the league is more important for me, I’m really a league guy,” said Hunt.
“I always say that the best clubs is where you end up on the league table after 30 games. We have the referees like what’s been going on this season and the decisions. But if you look at the end of the season after 30 games if you are third or fourth or second you are the second-best team.
“You could have won two cups, but obviously the cup competitions are very lucrative for the club owners, the players and it creates a vibe, it’s very good. We are very fortunate in this country to have all these cup competitions. But for me, the league is very super judged.”
