Interim coach Arthur Zwane made an admission on Kaizer Chiefs’ potential signings as the Soweto giants are being increasingly linked with striker Victor Letsoalo and Bienvenu Eva Nga.
Chiefs finished the season outside the CAF qualifying places after a 2-2 draw against Swallows FC at FNB Stadium on Saturday.
Speaking after the final whistle, Zwane revealed the club’s thought processes on any potential attacking reinforcements for next season.
“It’s going to be the biggest challenge to get everyone that we need as a club,” Zwane admitted post-match.
“That’s my belief right now because when you look at left-backs, left central defenders and strikers, how many strikers do we have in the country right now that have scored more than Peter Shalulile.
“Can you get Peter Shalulile from Sundowns? No.
There’s only one player that is trying [to match his scoring feats] maybe it’s Eva Nga, but is Eva Nga a Kaizer Chiefs type of player we’re looking for? It remains to be seen.
“Is Victor Letsoalo the type of player who can play for Kaizer Chiefs, the answer is yes, but can we get him? So those are the challenges you are faced with and it’s the reality.
And the midfielders like the number six, how many quality number sixes do we have in the country that can come play for Kaizer Chiefs?
“So we will have to develop them because we don’t want a number six to go up there and get yellow and red cards, we want a ballplayer, we want to play with flair we want to dominate, we want our people to come to stadiums to watch football.”
