Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Arthur Zwane has discussed the club’s blunder with striker Lazarous Kambole, contrasting it to Mamelodi Sundowns’ ability to attract players who know how to play.
With just four appearances and one goal this season, the Zambian striker’s contract is set to expire at the end of June. Kambole, who joined Amakhosi in 2019 while Ernst Middendorp was the coach, was put on the transfer list before the start of the current season, but no club signed him. He’s been linked with a return to Zambia after failing to make an impression in the Premier Soccer League.
Zwane addressed the issue, stating that Amakhosi must know how to utilise the players they sign.
“I think one of the mistakes we have done as a club is bringing in players and not knowing how to use them. All the players who join Kaizer Chiefs, we should know why we are bringing them in and why we are bringing them to the club and know how to use them to their strength, so that they can also enjoy their football,” Zwane told media after Amakhosi’s 1-1 draw with Mamelodi Sundowns at FNB Stadium on Sunday.
“This is what a team like Mamelodi Sundowns is doing. If you can check their players, whether they get a player from Black Leopards or Cape Town City, they improve because the technical staff has special people who understand their roles individually.”
