Khanye Makes Huge Pitso-Chiefs Claim

Former Kaizer Chiefs winger Junior Khanye has questioned the quality of players at Naturena, saying even if they would appoint Pitso Mosimane as coach he would need a new team.

His comments come after the side lost 1-0 to relegation-threatened Richards Bay at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Sunday.

The loss stretches their winless streak back to early March 2024 and they also dropped out of the top 8 to 10th position tied on 30 points with Polokwane City behind them, having collected just one point in their last five games.

Khanye believes there are deeper issues at the club than just changing the coach again and has called for changes because he feels not even Mosimane would have it easy to turn their fortunes with the current crop of players around.

“There are deep problems at Kaizer Chiefs. Deep problems,” Khanye said on iDiski TV.

“They might think Cavin Johnson is the problem but he is not. Yes, I don’t agree with some of Cavin’s tactical decisions but he is not the only problem at Chiefs. These players are average.

“You can get Pitso Mosimane to coach these players and he would need to get rid of at least 13 players here. The problems at this club are deep.

“The best clubs in the world have good scouting. Getting players who suit the style and culture of the club. Kaizer Chiefs don’t have a good scouting department. That’s why they sign low-class players like Christian Saile who has played in lower leagues in Zambia. They don’t do proper assessments! 

“Chiefs can change the coach but they still need to change a lot of things there – their development structure, their scouting department, the management! There is a lot of work that needs to be done at Chiefs.

“It’s not about losing to Richards Bay, it’s about the last 10 years. This club has completely lost its way!”
