Hlanti – We Need To Show Hunger
New Kaizer Chiefs signing S’fiso Hlanti says he is looking forward to play a big a role as possible at the club.
The Bafana Bafana left back is one of the new signings at the Amakhosi ahead of the 2021/2022 DStv Premiership season, having played for Swallows last season.
The former Bidvest Wits player had been linked with a move to Chiefs last season, but that wasn’t possible after the club had an enforced FIFA transfer ban.
But now having joined the club, he is ready to work hard and play a role at the club as they look to improve on last season’s eight position.
“I am looking forward to seeing myself being part of the team as much as I can,” Hlanti told the club’s website.
“The mentality I have is positive. What matters the most for me is being a respectful person and knowing what the task of being in a team like Kaizer Chiefs is.
“Kaizer Chiefs is a big brand – we all know, and I respect that.
“As a footballer, I am positive about everything and I know there will be a lot of challenges and expectation but what matters the most is how I react and respond.
“I always have a positive mentality and I hope this season is going to be far better than the previous one for us. I know that the guys didn’t manage to get what they were looking last season, but they did try to do what they best given the circumstances, which included reaching the Champions League final.
“I am delighted I am here with the team and I also want to thank the management, the coaches and the players for welcoming me with warm hands. It’s important to not forget all the supporters who’ve been with the Chiefs through thick and thin.
“We know what it takes to be successful and we are aware of the expectations that come with being in this team. We also know there are lots of challenges but once you respond with a positive mentality you can achieve a lot. We understand that it is all about our supporters being happy. As players, we need to show hunger and reward them by winning because we know how much they love Chiefs.”
