Chiefs Youth The Future? Coach Tackles Topic

After returning to action over the weekend, a Kaizer Chiefs junior coach spoke freely, albeit briefly, about the club's growth goals.

The Agent's Thoughts On The Troubled Downs Loanee

Jimmy Jambo, a former Amakhosi defender, is in charge of Naturena's U13 and U15 teams, and the youngsters have returned to the Gauteng Development League (GDL) after a sabbatical, which was a great relief for their coach.

The U17 and U19 age groups were also in action, with members of the Chiefs first team technical personnel, notably Molefi Ntseki, the head of technical and recruitment at Amakhosi, keeping a careful eye on things.

“Our goal is to holistically develop players, and success will follow if you provide them with a positive environment. When asked about goals, Jambo was cited on the club's website as saying, "We want to create good technical players and the results will come."

“The players I have are extremely hungry. They know the game well, and the core players from last season are still around, which helps with consistency. Training without playing is ineffective. The boys require a competitive environment, and the GDL provides us with that opportunity. Some of the youngsters I started with in the GDL have already advanced to the reserves, and others have advanced to the U19 team. It's a terrific step to have those lads graduate from U13 to U18,” Jambo added.
