Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane has hinted the Amakhosi won’t be busy in the January transfer window.
This, despite another poor start to the season in which Chiefs have struggled in the league and being knocked out of the MTN8, meaning their eight-year trophy drought looks set to continue.
13 players were signed in the previous transfer window but there has been criticism over the quality and shrewdness of those signings, prompting rumours that Chiefs would splash the cash in the next window. However, Zwane has suggested otherwise.
“Obviously we will do the profiling. We have players who have been doing well. And we’re not going to focus on the negatives, we’ll focus on the positives,” the coach said.
“At one stage we had an opportunity two weeks back where we created a lot of chances and did not take them [in a 2-1 defeat to Chippa United in Durban]. Had we got maximum points on that night, it was going to be a different ball game — we were going to be No 1.
“But this is a journey. The league is a race, and we’re running our own race until the last game. That’s when we have to do introspection, look at ourselves, where to improve and what to do.
“But obviously if there is a player who we think is good enough to come and play for Kaizer Chiefs and he’s available, we will definitely bring him on board just to beef up here and there.
“At the moment the only thing we can do is a proper profiling, rather than rush into things — because we want to give the players who are part of the team now the opportunity to showcase their talent and we’ll take it from there.”
