Amakhosi Legend Pollen Ndlanya gives advice to Chiefs players “ This is your last chance, change,”


They say when the legends speaks, you listen. Those who have seen it all and been there before knows the ups and downs of playing for a big club. Kaizer Chiefs senior players have received criticism over the past five years and legendary striker Pollen Ndlanya has sent strong message ahead of a new season. Amakhosi have extended the contracts of some of the players who have been there for quite some time now. Like Itumeleng Khune who has been loyal to a club for more than 15 years and was rewarded with a new two year contract extension. So was Bernard Parker and Former Mamelodi Sundowns Captain Ramahlwe Mphahlele were given two more years. This came as surprise to many fans who saw their favorite hard-man Willard Katsande being shown the door after serving the club for 10 years.


Ndlanya believes that the club couldn’t really rebuild without senior players, however he feels there’s a need for change in terms of mindset and understanding their role in the team moving forward.

“ I think they are still needed there. You can’t rebuild without senior players. I would like to see them playing a role of leadership and helping young players. When I joined Chiefs, I was welcomed by senior players, the likes of Neil Tovey and others. They made it easy for us to settle in and learn the culture of the club,” Ndlanya told Soccer reporters.


The former striker says those extensions are their last chance to rebuild trust and make sure when they leave, they are always remembered as heroes who contributed at Chiefs.

” Being given a chance means a lot, they need to change and become better role models to the youngsters, contribute positively to the rebuilding of the club and leave a good legacy for themselves,” concluded Ndlanya telling Soccer Sources. It won’t be easy to rebuild a team that looked rugged and by bringing back Stuart Baxter, it might be time to get rid of aging players. Who should they sign to keep building? Let me know what you think.
