Chiefs’ New Look Defence Amid Injury Crisis

Kaizer Chiefs Have A Bit Of A Defensive Crisis

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 12, 2017 02:01 PM
Kaizer Chiefs are expected to field an entirely new back four going into the clash with Cape Town City amid an injury crisis that sees three key players ruled out of action.
 
 
The Amakhosi take on the Citizens in the Mother City on Wednesday evening as they chase their first win of the campaign, but they will have to try and do so without regulars such as Erick Mathoho (suspended) and injured duo, Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Tsepo Masilela.
 
Steve Komphela has only two available centre backs – Lorenzo Gordinho and Daniel Cardoso – due to Mathoho’s suspension and Teenage Hadebe’s injury, while Kgotso Moleko and Philani Zulu are practically his only choices at right and left back following injuries to ‘Rama’, Masilela and Sibusiso Khumalo.
 
There was some positive news following the return of Itumeleng Khune from a chest infection, and with that in mind, it is expected that their backline will consist of Khune, Moleko, Gordinho, Cardoso and Zulu. 
 
 
Meanwhile, 19-year-old Siyabonga Ngezana is also likely to make the matchday squad as the only other first team centre back available, although will probably only make an appearance if something happens to Gordinho or Cardoso. 
 
A positive for Komphela, though, is that Gordinho and Cardoso are yet to taste defeat when they have started at centre back together.
 
City host Chiefs at 19h30 at Cape Town Stadium tomorrow night.

Eish, Mtwesi is Steve predictable or is our players predictable? I mean there is no depth in the squad. The names you mentioned are obvious. They are the only players to play. And yet we blame it on Steve. Guys its high time we face reality, Steve is not the problem here, management is the BIG problem. They don't want to spend. How many of you knows Jayiya? Most don't because he is not quality. Very soon, 16v will reveal something you guys don't know is happening ko Naturena ka our management. Why they don't want to buy quality players. So please, leave Steve alone. He needs our support.
