Arthur Zwane talks about what it means to play for Chiefs
With the 2022/23 DStv Premiership season done and dusted, Kaizer Chiefs head coach Arthur Zwane has sent a strong message to the players that will be coming in at Chiefs ahead of the new season.
Amakhosi have already started to make a couple of moves in strengthening their squad for next season with the likes of Given Msimango, Mduduzi Mdantsane and Thatayaone Ditlhokwe well and truly on their way to Naturena for the 2023/24 DStv Premiership season.
While Chiefs is also set to add more new players into their set-up for next season, Zwane has reiterated that playing for Kaizer Chiefs comes with it's own challenges and pressure and the new players should be ready for that.
"We have identified a few individuals and some we managed to get them, some the team is still trying to make sure that we get them but again the question would be, can they cope with the pressure of playing for a club of Kaizer Chief's calibre?
That also comes with the question of quality, if the quality is available then we will go for it because what we need is quality, quality players can play under pressure and quality players know how to win games," Zwane said.
Under the guidance of Zwane with several new players in the team, Amakhosi only managed to finish 5th on the log with 44 points after 30 matches and Zwane has alluded that the team needs to be more cautious when making signings in the future.
"At Chiefs we need players that can dig deeper, because other teams double or even triple their efforts when they play against us so we need players that can cope with the pressure and the demands of playing for Kaizer Chiefs' calibre," Zwane added.
After another season without a trophy, Zwane and co. will be going through some serious introspection on the overall performance of the team in the just ended DStv Premiership season and look to rectify their mistakes ahead of the new 2023/24 season.
