A long journey awaits you! – Zwane
“We have a long way to go from where we want to be.” Kaizer Chiefs manager Arthur Zwane told the club’s website ahead of the match.
“We are getting closer in terms of tactical discipline and approach to play.
“The players know their responsibilities and we are working on our chemistry in the final third, which is lacking.
“When you look at how many times we had entries into the box in our last game, I don’t think it’s enough compared to the number we had against Maritzburg.
“We were on the right track until we lost two players and had to start all over again. Kaizer Chiefs need to bring the best eleven into the pitch.
“In terms of understanding to be able to work on it and perfect it and then we had to re-engineer things. You want to do this while you get results, but we have that belief.
