Cape Town - Nhlanhla Kubheka has backed Steve Komphela to succeed at Kaizer Chiefs and claims he needs to buy three strikers ahead of the new season.
Amakhosi failed to lift any silverware in Komphela's debut campaign with a lack of goalscorers being the clear problem with the squad.
Since the end of the campaign the former Maritzburg boss started the squad overhaul with a total of 20 players being labeled as surplus to requirements.
Kubheka feels now with Komphela having the freedom to build his own squad with his own football philosophy, he can be judged fairly as of next season.
"They should give Steve a chance and they mustn't judge him," the former Chiefs defender told KickOff.
"Steve is not a one or two-season coach. But he's a long-term coach with great philosophical ideas in terms of grooming players and solidifying the team.
"I think we need to actually bring one right-back, one left-back and perhaps three strikers and two midfielders. I feel the rest you can actually produce our own youngsters."
