Zwane’s Chiefs: FIVE new things we’ve noticed

If you were to ask any Kaizer Chiefs supporter right now if they are impressed with the team, the answer would undoubtedly be yes. Amakhosi's performance was marked by both confidence and flair. 


After going a trophyless seven years in a row, the great Amakhosi eventually made some significant and risky adjustments to the team's roster. 

Since the conclusion of the previous campaign, no fewer than thirteen players have been allowed to leave the Naturena gate. The eliminations of Samir Nurkovic, Leonardo Castro, and Lebogang Manyama were among the most stunning of the tournament. 


The twelve-time PSL champions have been on a tear since they brought in nine new players, and their results have been outstanding. 

After completely dominating the first game, Arthur Zwane's squad was handed a defeat by Royal AM in the form of a 1-0 loss, which was completely undeserved. In the second game, the team defeated Maritzburg United by a score of 3-0. 

What follows is a list of the five most important things that we've learned... 

  1. Bruce Bvuma owns the goalkeeper’s gloves
  2. Zitha Kwinika and Siyabonga Ngezana are the starting center backs
  3. Yusuf Maart is the best and most important player on the team
  4. Ashley Du Preez is the first-choice striker
  5. Chiefs deploy a very high and aggressive press in the opponent’s half.

In the meantime, the most difficult test up to this point has appeared. Saturday at 15:00 local time, Mamelodi Sundowns will be the opponent when the Chiefs go to Loftus Versfeld. 

Will Amakhosi be able to start the new era with a victory over Sundowns in Tshwane, or will Sundowns be able to show their superiority as the African champions from 2016? Please let us know your thoughts in the comments area below.
