Before the match starts (Clash), Rulani have provided an overview of the Kaizer Chiefs' strategy.
Rulani Mokwena, co-head coach of Mamelodi Sundowns, has described Kaizer Chiefs' tactics, claiming that the Soweto giants have followed a different path under opponent Arthur Zwane. The Brazilians will face the Chiefs in a DStv Premiership match at Loftus Stadium on Saturday afternoon, and Mokwena has admitted that Amakhosi, who are aiming to restore Soweto's glory days, have been a breath of fresh air.
Zwane's men lost a 1-0 league setback but responded with a 3-0 thrashing of Maritzburg United on Tuesday.
"It's not simply a change; it's a big metamorphosis. According to Mokwena, the team appears to be moving in a different path from the goals the club has established. Younger players like "Nyaope" [Kamohelo Mahlatsi] Dillon Solomons are targeted in the transfer market, and players like Bruce Bvuma and Mduduzi Shabalala are also promoted and given opportunities.
"They haven't gone in that route for a very long time. There was a significant dependence on players like Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Bernard Parker, and Eric Mathoho under the last three coaches. And therefore that influences a lot of things like the selection of the coach which Arthur Zwane knows the DNA of the club.
He has experience working as an assistant coach and in the academy, which has an impact on hiring practices. We have seen that there are 'larger' players on the transfer market, but Chiefs have chosen younger players like Yusuf Maart or Ashley Du Preez than they would ordinarily do, according to Mokwena. As they now have a competent coach and "an exceptionally talented squad that can play a game they speak about with high octane, aggressive pressing," the Chiefs' new strategy and attitude, according to the Sundowns coach, is beneficial for South African football.
"We know it will be a tough game on Saturday, but we love tough games and have the expertise to handle tough games," the Downs coach said.
