Tshabalala believes Kaizer Chiefs players are not enjoying football

Kaizer Chiefs legend Siphiwe Tshabalala believes the club’s current crop of players are not enjoying their football.

The 39-year-old former winger has questioned the players’ commitment to the club.

Amakhosi have now gone nine years without silverware and are in danger of missing out on top eight finish this season.

‘Shabba’, who played for the Soweto giants for a decade, said complacency has become the order of the day. In an interview on the Marawa Show, Tshabalala said the current players don’t see the privilege of playing for Kaizer Chiefs.

“Players need to know why they are there, they must not be familiar with the environment, don’t get used to that place. It is a beautiful place, everything there, even matches [are like] for the top teams in Europe,” he said.

“If you get familiar you become complacent, and after that it is mediocre and then you are gone. What I am seeing is that guys don’t enjoy playing football, they don’t see the [privilege] of playing for Kaizer Chiefs.”

“Yes, you can lose games, but leave everything on the pitch, and then we can say the boys gave their all,” he added.

Tshabalala believes Kaizer Chiefs management needs to restructure to turn things around.

“I think that is what is required, give your best, work hard, and leave everything on the field and the results will come.

“It is an issue that needs a helicopter view, I mean the management needs to [restructure] things and check how best they can turn things around.”

Tshabalala is one of the many Kaizer Chiefs legends who have voiced their concern over the club’s lack of success.
