This summer's transfer window was one of the most exciting in the history of the game. Many prominent players switched teams, while others went back to where they came from. Players from Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates, and Mamelodi Sundown all moved on to different PSL clubs in the transfer market.
The day before the deadline, the 31st of August, is when most of the controversy occurs. Kaizer Chiefs, on the other hand, I believe made two colossal errors that could have serious repercussions for them this season if caution is not exercised.
1. They failed to boost their team by signing any top players before the deadline.
Kaizer Chiefs resisted the urge to add players before the transfer deadline, as did many other teams. Their performance in the first two games of the new season hasn't been good enough to be satisfied with, but they haven't moved away from it.
To stay in the title race, they could have added some players to their current squad. However, that squad does not appear strong enough to compete with other clubs in the relegation zone.
2. They had three players released on the deadline:
The release of Ayanda Rorwana, Sizwe Twala, and Itumeleng Shopane by the chiefs was a grave error. They should have done this sooner so that other PSL clubs could have signed them. Instead, they have to wait until the next transfer window in January to find a new club to join them.
If a foreign club that can still sign players goes after them, they may have a chance at finding a new team. They're a free agent today, and the team will lose out if they leave in the summer of 2019. This season, I feel the club's financial health and performance will be harmed by these two blunders.
