In other news, we have discussed with our analyser Senzo Sambo about Kaizer Chiefs FC midfielder issues;
“So, today i was debating with another guy about the Kaizer Chiefs midfield position.
“He was saying the reason Kaizer Chiefs start two CDMs, or sometimes 3 is because they don’t want to be exposed at the back. I then asked him why does Kaizer Chiefs concede every game, if the aim of the two CDMs is to protect defensive deficiencies he never came back.
“A wise Man once said the best way to defend is to attack go all over the world, check teams that attack like Man City,Arsenal,Barcelona,Liverpool they concede less and keep more cleansheets. For example, the first phase of defense is High Press when the opponents starts the ball at the back, you press high they go long and lose the ball, that’s how you start to defend.
“Secondary phase of Defense is the counter press, let’s say you are trying to attack then the opponents wins the ball and their attack is proving to be a danger, you then press in your numbers in your 4s to try win back position. That way you are able to always have the ball more which means less defensive work for your defenders.
“But when your defense has to face wave after wave of attacks, what do you think is gonna happen? They finally crack because no matter how good you are as a defender you cannot stop something that keeps on coming at you again and again.
“That is why teams that keep more of the ball are more likely to score due to them attacking frequently, Mamelodi Sundowns does this to PSL teams, if you check most Sundowns goals comes after the 70th minute mark, why because the defense can only hold on to certain instances until they crack.”
