“We like to play attacking football,” says Gisdol.

“We also want to have a quick transition game from the back going forward. This has to be done with precision and at high speed.

Gisdol added that Chiefs are in the mould German giants, Bayern Munich, if one were to describe their contributions to football.

“Kaizer Chiefs are the Bayern Munich of South Africa.

“They are the big powerhouse of South African football.”
