Chiefs legend 'Computer' criticises lack of goals

Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs legend Vusi 'Computer' Lamola believes the club's goal-scoring problems show no signs of abating, and that no one has ever been able to emulate the legendary Patrick 'Ace' Ntsoelengoe.

Currently, the Glamour Boys have managed just nine goals in eight games in the Premiership and defender, Lorenzo Gordinho, is the leading scorer with three strikes to his name.

With that said, the only forward to have hit the back of the net is Michelle Katsvairo, who managed a goal in Chiefs' 2-0 victory over Free State Stars in late September.

In addition, defensive midfielder, Willard Katsande, was Amakhosi's leading scorer in 2015/16 with seven goals in the league, of which four were from the penalty spot.

As such, Lamola is of the belief that no one ever replaced the late Ntsoelengoe, who passed away in 2006.

The forward was regularly Amakhosi's leading scorer and managed a record-breaking 19 goals in 17 Soweto derbies.

"When we speak of the quality of players, we cannot compare the current crop with the previous crop...it would be unfair," Lamola told Soccer Laduma

"When we were burying Ace, I said that the one to emulate him is still to be born. I have never seen anything close to him again."

Chiefs will be in action on Sunday in a Telkom Knockout clash against Free State Stars.

Kick off is at 15:00.
