Ndlanya: Chiefs are predictable

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs legend, Pollen Ndlanya, has expressed his view that the club needs to add real quality to the squad if they want to stop being predictable in 2014/15.

According to the Soccer-Laduma website, the Glamour Boys had a somewhat frustrating 2013/14 campaign in which they narrowly lost out on defending their PSL title, as well losing out in the cup competitions as well.

For the most part this past season, Chiefs used the basis of the first-11 that won them the league and cup double in 2012/13. It is this approach that Ndlanya feels has become too predictable for Chiefs in recent times, and that's why he believes that some radical changes are necessary.  

The former Amakhosi hitman, who scored over 50 goals in his Chiefs career, told the Siya crew, "We've seen at Chiefs last season that they played virtually the same team like they did when they won the double. It's the same predictable style. It's 'Shabba' (Siphiwe Tshabalala) playing more left-sided as an attacking midfielder. 'Yeye' (Reneilwe Letsholonyane) playing in the middle and Bernard Parker is more upfront. It's too predictable - Chiefs need to change everything!"

The 29-cap former Bafana Bafana international added, "Look, 'Shabba' and 'Yeye' aren't old as such. But they've played a lot of games in their careers! They need to get the right rest and there needs to be proper competition. They haven't got any there, you know. Chiefs must buy quality players - we need depth. This club are like Barcelona of the African continent...we need to maintain that dignity and respect."

He concluded, "We must buy quality players. Bobby and Kaizer (Motaung) must open the cheque book. If we don't buy some real quality then we are going to have a problem in future. Look at Sundowns, they are buying players because they are going all out to win. We must do the same, you know."

Team Manager, Bobby Motaung, is also expected to fly out to Germany soon to try and secure Knowledge Musona's services once more from Hoffenheim as well.
