Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane said that even with the numerous signings they have now, they are yet to fill a specific role in the team and that’s why their business in the transfer market isn’t over.
Durban – The DStv Premiership is about a week away from the start of the first match of the new 2022/23 campaign and teams are packing up from their various locations they had elected to host their pre-season.
Kaizer Chiefs are one of the teams most football supporters are looking forward to watching this upcoming season following the club’s decision to make wholesale changes in terms of playing personnel ahead of the new campaign.
The Naturena based club have already bolstered their squad with a total of eight players, signings that were approved by new head coach Arthur Zwane who is set to have an opportunity to lead the club that glorified him to the footballing fraternity as a player.
‘10111’ has been very vocal about the club’s desire to attract top quality players all around the pitch.
The 41-year-mentor revealed on UKhozi FM that even with the numerous signings they have now, they are yet to fill a specific role in the team and that’s why their business in the transfer market isn’t over.

“We are still in the market looking for a striker, we are looking for a specific kind of striker at that,” he said
“We are looking for a big and bulky striker, one that can hold up balls for us because the ones we have right now are more reliant on their speed so we need to have a variety in order for us to be dangerous at all times.
“The key thing for us at the moment is to do this process properly because we don’t want to be too hasty and buy any big striker, we’ve done this in the past and it didn’t turn out so well.”

Zwane also revealed that the club aren’t particularly certain about their defence and the variety they have at the moment.

“We are also looking for a left-footed centre back to cover that position because the players we have right now are mostly right footed so we want to add that flexibility,” he explained
“We’ve been looking for a while now but it’s very hard to find these kinds of players, we’ve scoured the continent for this kind of player but find one that is comfortable on the ball and is able to help us going forward is very important so that’s why the process is taking a while.”
