It is indeed bizarre to think that a team like the Chiefs could go a couple of years without winning trophies.
Not that the Chiefs haven't added a lot of new players in the last five or six years. However, several of those players were budget solutions, players whose contract terms had expired, cheap signings from the region's amateur clubs, and so on.
Now is the time to prioritise high quality, and to exceed the budget if necessary. Chiefs have long been well-sponsored as the best-supported and possibly most renowned team in the country.
Chiefs interim manager Arthur Zwane conceded that the club is interested in red-hot Royal AM and Bafana Bafana striker Letsoalo, however the payment could be inaccessible.
"Is Victor Letsoalo the type of player who can fit in at Kaizer Chiefs?" Yes, the answer to that is yes. But, you know what I mean? Could we get him?
"Are those the difficulties you're dealing with?" And it's the truth, you know," he was cited by SABC as simply stating.
It would be saddening for Amakhosi fans to learn that their team is unable to remain competitive in the market.
With the current state of affairs, Amakhosi must be prepared to invest heavily in the transfer window. To satisfy their fan base and bring in the type of quality required to return to the top. Also, to make a declaration of purpose to their competitors.
With Lazarous Kambole, Samir Nurkovic, and Leonardo Castro potentially leaving, Amakhosi will need to introduce in far more offensive capability.
Letsoalo is a top class striker in a league that isn't known for them.
According to reports, the Royal AM marksman would cost around R20 million, which is a significant sum.
However, if the Chiefs are profound about trying to turn around a challenging time in the club's glorious history, drastic measures are required.
If Letsoalo alternatively joins either of the Chiefs' competitors – Sundowns or perhaps even the Orlando Pirates – the Glamour Boys might drop behind again.
