Former Kaizer Chiefs FC player and current legend Doctor Khumalo has opened up on current Chiefs number one goalkeeper Brandon Petersen towards the next fixture against Royal AM FC. Khumalo also adviced or exposed what he thinks was supposed to be done by Chiefs and not loss against Mamelodi Sundowns FC on the previous clash.
Khumalo praised Chiefs keeper and captain Brandon Petersen. He says Petersen is doing well, and he has shown what he is capable of as a goalkeeper. He even said Brandon is currently his second best goalkeeper in the country (South Africa). Khumalo said on the next game against Royal AM, he will still use him as a first option.
Apart from that, Chiefs legend said Chiefs was supposed to try by all means to hurt Mamelodi Sundowns FC and that would disturb Sundowns attacks or tactics.
“Brandon Petersen + Coach Rainer; when you spend money to hire quality people in positions, you get rewarded with Quality on the field as well. I’m one of the people who were so Vocal about Brandon Petersen’s mistakes and I made it known that he doesn’t deserve to start ahead of Khune. But as an honourable man, today I want to give credit to Brandon Petersen for amazing job he’s been doing the last 3 matches that we come from? Man served me a humble pie. He is so serious now.
“Now Kaizer Chiefs gets credit as well for bringing back coach Rainer Dinkelacker as our Goalkeeper coach someone who has won trophies! With a proven record! Last season we struggled a lot with our Goalkeepers, not because they are bad but because they didn’t have a coach who deserves to be at Chiefs. Now Rainer is here, Quality is benefiting is on the field! Imagine if the whole bench of technical team was quality with a proven record?
“I hope & wish Petersen stays injury free & consistent. I’d love to see him learning distribution from Khune as well. The pacey players we have would eat nice.” – Calvary Best of Chiefs said.
