Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Lucas Radebe has explained what Amakhosi need to do to finally end their trophy drought.
The Glamour Boys featured in their first ever CAF Champions League final against Al Ahly in July this year, where they lost 3-0.
Amakhosi missed 2021/22 Africa’s elite competition as they ended 8th in the domestic league last season.
However, they were sitting in second place on the log before their Covid-19 outbreak at Naturena. Radebe believes the club is going in the right direction and will soon lift silverware again.
“You know, Kaizer Chiefs is a big club and big clubs are capable of coming back because they know how to do it. So, when they take a dip, they are going to go up against it, it is normal,” Radebe told iDiski Times.
“I believe they have got a chance. I think the mentality of the players now, they realize that the brand that they represent should be at a level where they are competing for silverware.
“Yes it is not going to happen overnight, it takes confidence, it takes stability, it is a marathon. To be a quality team, you need consistency. You need to be there week in, week out like Sundowns.
“You need to be playing in big competitions, you need to be playing good football. We all know the brand of Kaizer Chiefs and what they are capable of, and for me, that takes time, to get the consistency in playing well.
“You might lose a game, but if you lose a game having played well, it is a different story and that’s what we need. We can win today, win tomorrow, then lose, that’s not success. For me, success is when you play well, competing week in, week out consistently.”
