Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp has assessed the progress of every player at the club while stuck at home under the Covid-19 lockdown regulations.

Amakhosi continue to conduct online training sessions both individually and as a team, but the German tactician revealed that he is also using his time at home to compile comprehensive reports.

In addition, the Chiefs' coach has evaluated the past eight months of the season in a bid to assure they secure the PSL title, if the 2019/20 campaign is able to continue.

The Soweto giants entered the break just four points ahead of Mamelodi Sundowns and having played a game more.

Middendorp told the club's official website: "Covid-19 has provided me with enough time to assess the past eight months of the current season.

"It is about the ongoing assessment of individual players, their performances and profiling. I have had time to go through the details of every individual player.

"I've also had time to look at what worked so far this season and what we need to do differently going forward. I am using this information to make individual reports on each player."

The coach added: "I am furthermore looking at what can be done differently, both as an individual player and as a team. It's all about spending my time at home productively.

"Overall, I try to stay alert, as we can be called back to the training field at any time. It is therefore essential to stay on top and be ready."
