 Former Kaizer Chiefs Thomas Sweswe Has Revealed What Chiefs Should Do In Their January Transfer

The retired player has shared his thoughts on how the Soweto giants may improve their roster. Told GOAL.

Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Thomas Sweswe believes Amakhosi should recruit a proven forward during the January transfer window to relieve the strain on Khama Billiat and Keagan Dolly.

The transfer window opens on January 1st, and it’s unclear which players Chiefs boss Stuart Baxter will bring in.

The Soweto giants have struggled to find a striker who scores in double figures in recent seasons, but Samir Nurkovic achieved that feat in the 2019/20 season, scoring 13 Premier Soccer League goals.

“Goals win games, and those aggressive midfielders are capable of making you shine on any given day.” I’m sure [Peter] Shalulile would still shine like he does at Sundowns if he was playing with those creative midfielders, so they need to find a goal-scoring striker.”

In the absence of Nurkovic and Leonardo Castro, Billiat has been utilized as a centre-forward.

Lazarous Kambole, another striker, has been battling for playing time.

Dolly is the team’s leading scorer so far this season, with six goals in 15 league games, followed by Billliat, who has five goals.

In 16 PSL games this season, the combination has produced 11 of Amakhosi’s 21 goals.

Mamelodi Sundowns leads the log with 33 goals, with striker Shalulile scoring 13 of them.

Chiefs are 16 points behind Masandawana in fourth place, and Sweswe does not see Amakhosi getting up to the Tshwane giants.

“[Chiefs catching up] is impossible.” Sundowns will continue to dominate the league for many years to come,” Sweswe added.

“They are always the favorites before the season even starts because of how they spend in athletes and everything they do is legal.”

When they play, they have a system in place, and you will always love watching them. The coaches deserve credit for picking up where Pitso left off.

“There is no consistency at Chiefs, and opponents are always motivated when they come up against Chiefs.” So I don’t think they’ll be able to catch up to Sundowns.

“My objective is for them to compete for second place and therefore qualify for the Caf Champions League.”

In Africa, the Champions League is a major competition, therefore I hope and pray that they can maintain consistency in their performances.”

Second-placed Orlando Pirates, Stellenbosch, SuperSport United, Royal AM, Sekhukhune United, and AmaZulu are currently Chiefs’ closest competitors for a Champions League position.
