Kaizer Jnr agrees with fans about Kaizer Chiefs player signings


It’s been obvious, Kaizer Chiefs have, for quite some time, offered a playing squad that is superior to that of rivals like Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns.


A quick look at the immense talent depth at Pirates and Sundowns, one can understand why the fans have been slamming the club’s recruitment policy.

The complaints have been so loud and clear that the club’s Sporting Director Kaizer Motaung has heard the message and agrees with it.

“For me, the team will always be looking to bring the best and I think the fans are right in that we need to make sure we can lure the best,” Kaizer Jnr said via the Sowetan.

“Part of that is also that players always wanted to play for Kaizer Chiefs because they knew they could win trophies at Chiefs. And that’s a culture we have to get back.

“We’ve always done business in the transfer windows. The January transfer window has always been a bit of a Joker, not just for us, but in world football — not all teams would do business then.

“We are in a rebuilding phase, so we have to be able to think smart in a market that has changed.

“I think we want to be competitive and do our supporters justice by improving how we conduct ourselves in the transfer market.”

Kaizer Jnr also took the moment to confirm an apparent situation in the market: local club owners have made it difficult to sell to Kaizer Chiefs.

“It’s not always just about what the club wants, it’s about what’s available and what’s practical. Because right now there are some club owners who’ve said in publications they won’t sell players to us and this person won’t make a move now.

“And many times those have been the players people have been saying ‘Go and buy that person.’

The former striker concluded to assure the supporters that Kaizer Chiefs’ management have heard the calls. Newer top talent will be brought to Naturena in the coming transfer windows.

“That’s why I think when you hear what supporters say, we agree with them. We want to be the best and moving forward that’s what we’ll look to do,” Kaizer Jnr said.
