Kaizer Chiefs Football Club fans and faithful are optimistic about their squad and the season ahead, with 9 new signings in the back and the squad looking stronger than the last four seasons in almost every position they feel this season there is nothing standing in their way to deliver silverware.

The club is currently on awful run which can not be associated with the club given their success in South African football, 6 plus years which is equal to 4 plus seasons without lifting a silverware for the most successful club in South African football fraternity when it silverware is something unheard of and not associated with them.
This forced the club's hand to make changes and changes has been the business of the day everyday at Naturena, Stuart Baxter replaced Gavin Hunt as the club's head coach, Molefi Ntseki brought in as Head of Technical team and development, former player Kaizer Motaung jnr brought in as Sporting Director, nine players where brought, 13 players left the club on both permanent and loan basis and head scout team Walter Steenbok also left the club to sum up the whole changes that have taken place at Naturena in the last few months.
But with all of these changes the duo of Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya(24) and Zambian Lazorous Kambole(27) despite being transfer listed are still at the club as they failed to find moved away from the club,they were nowhere to be seen in the recently updated squad on the club's website showing that they are not in the club's future plans going forward.

With that said we decided to look at players who could feature less for the club this season and here they are:
The left fullback is currently transfer listed and with the club's left full back position packed, it will be difficult to see him feature.
His fate at the club is that of Ntiya-Ntiya but he may feature as the club's frontline is thin.
The former Sundowns defender is currently third or fourth when it comes to packing for the right fullback position with youngsters Njabulo Blom and Reeve Frosler at their best.
He may have had few substitutions appearances but he is expected to get less action this season.
He is currently third or forth in the packing order when it comes to the goalkeeping department at the club.
The fight for number one spot is expected to be between Itumeleng Khune and Bruce Bvuma so Petersen is expected to see little action.
The 30 year old will have to settle for cameos as his source of game time this season.
The youngster will also see little action this season with the likes of Lebogang Manyama and Dumisani Zuma still on the wing nursing injuries and expected to be back very soon.
The youngster who is the 5th choice when it comes to the club's goalkeeping department is expected to feature in the Reserve league this season.
The 23 year old is set to be back up for various positions in Chiefs left side whether it could be at left back, full back or winger.
