Premier League

Rudolph Seale praising Kaizer Chiefs after their win against Chippa United

It was Kaizer Chief's first win after coming from draws in the last two games.

Following Saturday's 4-0 Premier Soccer League success over Chippa United at FNB Stadium, former Kaizer Chiefs defender Rudolph Seale believes the Amakhosi players are beginning to respond positively to coach Stuart Baxter's approach.

It was a triumph that stopped a four-match losing streak that included two defeats and as many draws, with blame being shifted between the players and Baxter.

However, Seale believes that their poor performance was not due to the coach's fault, and that the attention should now be on the players to improve their game now that they had "turned the corner" following the Chippa victory.

Seale told KickOff, "They've been together for a couple of weeks now, and the coach and players are starting to get acquainted to each other."

"I believe they've reached a point where they're growing acquainted to each other." Following Gavin Hunt's dismissal, I believe they should recognize that they cannot always dismiss coaches. Instead, they should concentrate on these players.

“It can't always be the coach,” says the coach. All we have to do now is get our performance up to par. This victory demonstrates that if our opponents can score four goals against us, we can as well. I believe they've realized it's not always the coach."

With the victory on Saturday, Amakhosi moved up to seventh place in the PSL table.

Seale believes the Chiefs' performance against Chippa suggests they have a chance to win the league title next season, but cautions them not to get carried away with the victory.

"I expect the Chiefs to be in fourth or fifth place on the log by the time the second round arrives." Seale stated, "I don't expect the Kaizer Chiefs to win the league."

"This season has simply served to demonstrate that we have the capacity to win the league next year." I'm blown away, but we shouldn't get too carried away after just one victory.

"Recall how I claimed a few weeks ago that Kaizer Chiefs was a team, not a club?" I believe they are now on their way to become a club. I'm just hoping we'll be more consistent in the future. The worst-case situation should be a draw."

On Sunday, Chiefs go to SuperSport United, who are currently in second position and undefeated.
