Absa Premiership leaders Kaizer Chiefs are the best team in the lan... largely because of six footballers.
Chiefs, like any other team in the world, have several players who come in & out of the starting line - except a selective few who never hold their breath before the team is named.
Coach Ernst Middendorp had a chat with the media after Amakhsosi’s 3-0 bullying of Highlands Park midweek. The German expressed his delight over several of his squad players coming getting rare starts in the game.
“We came into the game with five changes. We saw we brought Kgotso Moleko and Ramahlwe Mphahlele after missing for some time... This shows everyone in the team is ready to do the business when called upon,” Middendorp said via Soccer Laduma.
The 61-year-old went further to revealed having a group of six players who are the core of his log-leading team.
“We have a core team if look at it this way – with Mathoho and Cardoso at the back, Maluleka and Katsande in the midfield, Castro and Nurković upfront and other players make a core of the team,” Middendorp confirmed.
Amakhosi next take on Cape Town City at FNB Stadium tomorrow afternoon at 15:30.
