Gqosha: Gould must wait his turn

Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Lifa Gqosha feels Morgan Gould will struggle to break into Amakhosi's first team now that he has recovered from his injury woes.

A centre-back, Gould has been out since the start of the season and new coach Steve Khompela has a seemingly settled central defensive partnership in Eric Mathoho and new signing Siyanda Zulu.

Gosha, who played with distinction for the Soweto giants in the late 1990's, thinks Khompela should stick with the Zulu-Mathoho combination and Gould should bide his time.

Retired in 2004, Gosha told Goal website: "Look, it is really difficult to judge Morgan because he has struggled to play due to injuries and for me the coach should work on improving the partnership of Mathoho and Xulu.

"He is still behind when it comes to fitness and I don't think he can make a difference at the moment.

"I think the team needs time to develop an understanding under the new coach and there is no need to make changes especially in that defence where they looked shaky in some games. 

"His injury problems have made it very difficult for him to play regularly and I do see him playing a lot this season. I have confidence in the current back four and I think their partnership will grow with time."

Chiefs have played three matches in the new season, picking up one win and two draws, and take on SuperSport United on Saturday, September 12.

Kick-off is at 18:00.
