'See What Kaizer Chiefs Coach Said About Youngster Mduduzi.

'Read What Kaizer Chiefs Coach said about Youngster Mduduzi.' 


Arthur Zwane, interim coach of the Kaizer Chiefs, projected that Mduduzi Shabalala would have a long and successful career with the club after his first appearance for the team. 

While playing for the Chiefs' DStv Diski Challenge team last year, Shabalala made an impression on the coaches, who recommended him for a trial with Jupiler Proximus champions KVC Westerlo just a month ago. 

After winning the U17 COSAFA Player of the Tournament title in 2020, the young man also traveled to Villarreal recently to meet with the LaLiga club's coaching staff. 

His team has also given him his first professional start under Zwane in the encounter against the Swallows, which finished in a 2-2 draw. 

Additionally, the squad is being challenged to look at themselves, perhaps in the same way that we've done with Mduduzi today, and see how we can get them on board." Zulu journalist Lorenz Kohler inquired about the inclusion of Shabalala and other young players in the first team. Zwane responded by saying that Shabalala has "a lot of vitality in him and he's a future potential. 

'Once he settles in, he becomes one of the team's fiercest players,' said his teammates. However, it is our duty to guide him in the right direction. I don't think our club has done enough to help these young guys acclimate to their new surroundings. 

When players are promoted from the development tiers to the first team squad, the club must do more to maximize their potential, according to Zwane. When asked how the team could improve, Zwane responded this. 

In the first three months of their promotion, "these young guys performed exceptionally well," he said. In the first three months of their promotion, "if we can look back." 

Check out Wiseman Meyiwa's debut game where he scored to see for yourself. Siya Ngezane scored the goal. Furthermore, his performance was excellent as well as his goalscoring. 

So, what exactly does that imply?" It's proof that we were on the correct track. Njabulo Blom had the similar experience when he played his first game; he was an exceptional player. He finally hit his stride three months later. In the end, we must ask ourselves: what is wrong? Why do these boys perform well when they first make the first team, and then suddenly falter? This is an important question that we must address. 

Our first team is either not doing the right things, or we're not doing the correct things on the development side. After being promoted to the first-team, their performance increases. Perhaps the first-team players weren't challenging the young players enough to bring them to where we want them to be. 

For those reasons, and more, 10111 has asked the team to keep in mind when adding new players or younger players, it is imperative that they focus on maintaining the club's culture. 

We didn't ask anyone to play for this team, whether they were a youngster or a newcomer; instead, we led by example, telling you how things are done here, he recalled from his playing days. "When players were promoted to the first team, they were promoted to a star studded squad," he added. Players who were promoted to the first team during my time as a player "were promoted to a star-studded group," as I recall. 

Kaizer Chiefs have lacked leadership, and this is something that we need to fix when it comes to our culture," he continues. This is an area where we need to make improvements." The first step in making it big at Kaizer Chiefs is to make sure that you don't lose sight of reality. This is due to the fact that our society emphasizes a variety of values, such as self-respect and respect for others, as well as the importance of these traits. 

This is something we need to bring back right away if we want to make things better for Kaizer Chiefs so they can start winning cups and challenging for trophies, from what I've seen so far, ever since I've been part of the first team," he said. We've lost that, from what I've seen so far as a member of the first team.
