Lack of desire: Arthur Zwane defends Kaizer Chiefs players

Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Arthur Zwane believes that no player in their squad has lacked desire this season, despite the dismal results.

Zwane has been involved with Kaizer Chiefs since he retired, working as an assistant coach and then taking up a role in the developmental side.

The interim coach believes that Kaizer Chiefs are still the club that young players dream of turning out for even in the light of their worst season in memory.

“A team of Kaizer Chiefs’ calibre is a team that has a winning culture, a team that each and every child out there would want to be a part of. I’m so privileged to be part and parcel of this family,” Zwane said.

“When I decided to quit as one of the players I became an assistant coach for about a season.

“Then I was redeployed to development. It was very important for me to know how the younger ones think at that age. How do you groom them and help them to develop to be big players, to play for a team of Kaizer Chiefs’ calibre with so much pressure?

“This is one season that did not start very well. From the beginning the results were not forthcoming.

“But we understand because it’s one of those things. Maybe it’s a phase because sometimes this kind of thing happens to the best teams in the world.”

Zwane was delighted with the effort from the Kaizer Chiefs players against Golden Arrows, with the 3-2 win ensuring their hopes of securing a top-eight finish remain alive.

“I think it was our turn as a team to get the desired results. We are under pressure as technical staff and players. But we are always positive, knowing that at some stage things would change for the better.”

Zwane doesn’t believe that a single player in the squad hasn’t given their all each time they have stepped out onto the park.

“These are professionals, these are players who’ve been trying their level best, trying to showcase their talent,” the coach said.

“Things just haven’t been going well for us. I believe that there is no player who will go into the field of play and not want to perform.

“This is one season where we had a lot of challenges of injuries, and we’ve been travelling a lot, and games back-to-back. It was always going to be difficult for us to get it right at some point.”
