In an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma, Bobby Motaung, the football manager for Kaizer Chiefs, shed light on the reasoning behind this decision.

As the transfer window unfolds, Kaizer Chiefs fans were eagerly anticipating new additions to boost the squad.

However, the club has chosen to stick with its current set of players.

This decision is the opposite to the actions of other Premier Soccer League teams who are actively making moves in the transfer market.

In an exclusive interview, Bobby Motaung provided insights into the club’s decision, stating, “We beefed up the team at the beginning of the season, that’s why we are saying let him (Cavin Johnson) work with the team that is there now.”

“Let’s not confuse the team and system.”

Motaung explained the importance of giving the current squad a chance and allowing the team to gel under the guidance of interim coach Cavin Johnson.

The football manager acknowledged the earlier arrivals of nine new players at the start of the season, along with the addition of free agent Luke Fleurs from SuperSport United.

Kaizer Chiefs, as a club with a rich history and high ambitions, is keeping a watchful eye on the future.
