The Glamour Boys announced their new acquisitions on Wednesday with Solinas aiming to strengthen his squad in search of silverware this season.

Mario [Booysen] and Lebo [Manyama] both are not available because they need to improve their match fitness so for this game both won't be included in the squad.

Solinas then added that his side were going out to win the game that would see Amakhosi put an end to a barren of three seasons without silverware.

"When you play or work for Kaizer Chiefs, we must win every game. This is a big club and it's not possible to select the games. We try to win every game, every competition."

"At Kaizer Chiefs, we are only happy when we win. Draw is no good. We play and work to win."

The Italian also refused to comment on the speculation linking Bernard Parker and Siphiwe Tshabalala with exits from Naturena.

"I don't speak about the transfer of players. Parker and Tshabalala were training this morning as normal. I can't speak about the transfer of players."
