Kaizer Chiefs manager Bobby Motaung says recommendations will be made to new coach Ernst Middendorp regarding beefing up the team in the January transfer window.
Chiefs brought in the likes of Lebogang Manyama, Mario Booysen, Godfrey Walusimbi and marquee signing Khama Billiat before the start of the season, hoping that they would inspire the side to success early on in the campaign. That, however, has not been the case and this could see them making a few additions on or before August 2019.
“We will have a discussion with the coach and we will sit down and review. Players react differently. You can’t say you are offloading, maybe with the new coach we might not have to beef up because players react differently [when a new coach comes in]. So we will have to take it a step at a time, and we are looking at bringing in 3 international players” Motaung said.
“Obviously the players have to come on board, but we will see before the end of the year what the challenges will be and see what the coach thinks of where we need to beef up. We know and we will recommend, and we will show where the challenges are. Like you say, ‘Rama’ [Ramahlwe Mphahlele] is injured but we have other players.
So there are areas where the coach might say we need one or two. We will give him time to work with the team. August is around the corner and there will be games in between, so we will assess . we also have three Nigerian Players we would want him to sign”
