Cape Town - Kenny Niemach opens up on what he thinks of the current Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs attacking department.
According to KickOff, the two PSL giants have been experiencing totally different seasons with Sundowns reigning top of the Absa Premiership and Chiefs having spiraling season.
Sundowns attacking threat, spearheaded by Khama Billiat, Keagan Dolly and Leonardo Castro, have been firing all cylinders.
However, Steve Komphela’s first season in charge has been disturbed by failed combinations up front.
Niemach, a former striker himself for both Sundowns and Chiefs, says that Sundowns have been pleasing to watch as they play with a lot more swagger.
"Firstly, both teams are set up differently in their approach and application. In different phases of attack Sundowns have two players in Billiat and Dolly, with tremendous industry and technical ability - they ignite Sundowns," said Niemach.
"Furthermore they have a willingness to get into dangerous positions to threaten the opposition a lot more. In essence they just want it more."
Niemach says that while Chiefs have a “wealth of talent” at their disposal, the players are lacking in confidence.
"They have a wealth of talent at their disposal, they are just lacking in confidence. The current group of players need to trust each other more and support each other, especially when goals are hard to come by.
"Chiefs by nature have always been a team that thrive on combination play in the last third, not much of that is happening to threaten the opponent (at the moment)."
