Former Kaizer Chiefs star Siyabonga Nkosi is confident the club will return to winning ways when they take to the field for the upcoming season.
The Glamour Boys failed to meet expectations last term as they finished in a lacklustre fifth in the Premiership standings.
The side have since invested heavily in their squad in a bid to reinvigorate their performances on the pitch.
‘When it comes to next season… I think the team is more strengthened. The team was still balanced in terms of depth in the squad,’ Nkosi told KickOff.
I think even last season the team could have done better with the squad that they had because the quality is still there,’ he added.
The former player is expecting the likes of the young players to step up and make a mark.
‘They’ve also got a few youngsters that they’ve brought in and also players from Zimbabwe [Edmore Chirambadare and Mitchell Katsvairo]. We know that Zimbabwe is known for producing real, real, real good players,’ he continued.
‘I’ve watched the team that they [Chirambadare and Katsvairo] are coming from when they played against Mamelodi Sundowns. I was very impressed.’
Finally, Nkosi has stressed the crucial role of coach Steve Komphela in getting his players to adapt to the club’s style.
‘Going to next season it’s just for the coach to help the players properly towards the right direction and have them endorse his philosophies and his ideas… I think that’s crucial going forward for Kaizer Chiefs,’ Nkosi concluded.
