Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana international Mark Williams believes Steve Komphela has what it takes to win trophies at Kaizer Chiefs, but says the club needs to invest in more strikers.

Williams, who scored both goals in the final when South Africa won the Africa Cup of Nations in 1996, feels the forwards that Amakhosi currently have on their books are just not consistent enough.

Speaking to Goal website, Williams said: "My thing is that they need strikers because strikers win games. He (Steve Komphela) does have strikers. He has Abraw and Zulu, (George) Lebese is on-form and he was on-form also last year.

"Who else is there that they got? You know when you talk about strikers I am talking about consistency.

"So Chiefs still need a striker that is consistent that can score goals week in, week out.

"At the moment, they don't have a striker; they're depending on players like Lebese."

Despite criticising the club's signings, Williams still feels Komphela is the right man to lead the Soweto-based club.

Williams continued: "Now we all know that Steve Komphela is like a magician when it comes to motivating players. He is a good motivator, he can tell players to believe in themselves and that is sometimes what players need."

Amakhosi will be hoping to grab their first piece of silverware of the season when they take on Ajax Cape Town in the MTN8 final in Port Elizabeth on Saturday, September 19.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
