Zwane happy with Kaizer Chiefs players’ sharpness

After a brief break from training, Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane said his players were “looking sharp.”

Due to the ongoing Fifa World Cup in Qatar, the players took a two-and-a-half-week holiday before returning to Naturena.

On November 12, Amakhosi last competed in the Soweto derby matchup against Orlando Pirates in the Carling Black Label Cup.

The team took a rest after that game. However, when they came back on Thursday, Zwane was pleased with how well his players were doing.

“There are no injuries to report except for a bout of flu that has attacked Phathutshedzo Nange and Kgaogelo Sekgota.

“They will receive the necessary treatment from the medical team and I’m sure they will start training with the team next week.”

Zwane’s team appeared to have recovered some form before the interval. Their failure to maintain rhythm has been their biggest letdown since the season’s beginning.

The DStv Premiership season for Chiefs will resume on December 31 when they travel to Durban to face Golden Arrows.

Before the start of the league season, Zwane claims he has scheduled some friendlies to help his players improve their match fitness.

“We’ve got a few friendlies lined up, and these will help us with our fitness levels before we play that competitive match on New Year’s eve against Arrows.

“We hope that no one picks up any injury during the next four weeks so we are ready for that particular game,” says the Chiefs mentor.

The chiefs went onto the break having collected 21 points off 13 games. They trail log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns by seven.

And with the MTN8 already won by their biggest rivals Orlando Pirates, Amakhosi will now have to up their efforts in the league and Nedbank Cup.
