Former Kaizer Chiefs winger Junior Khanye has weighed in on the transfer activities the Soweto giants should be involved in ahead of next season.
Amakhosi officially wrapped up their 2021-22 campaign this past weeekend with a 2-2 draw at home against rivals Swallows FC who will be playing in the playoffs.
Now, Khanye’s overall assessment of the Chiefs season is that they should get a proper coach if they are serious about challenging for honours next term.
He believes whoever Chiefs appoint as head coach should be South African, mentioning Pitso Mosimane, Dan Malesela and Cavin Johnson as his preferred candidates.
Furthermore, Khanye said Chiefs need to sign Kermit Erasmus from Mamelodi Sundowns, Sipho Mbule of SuperSport United, Gabadinho Mhango from Orlando Pirates and Swallows defender Wandisile Letlabika.
“Kaizer Chiefs must get a couple of players that are quality, I believe. For Kaizer Chiefs to win a trophy, especially next season, they need to get a proper head coach,” Khanye told iDiski TV.
“They must keep Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard as assistant coaches but they must get a proper coach who is South African.
“For me, if they can get… I don’t know if they can break the bank and get Pitso Mosimane. I know it’s going to be tough but if they can’t then they can get Dan Dance to work with Arthur Zwane and Dillon or Cavin Johnson,” he continued.
“And they must get Sipho Mbule, Kermit Erasmus from Sundowns, Gabadinho Mhango from Orlando Pirates, also get Letlabika from Swallows to stabilise that defence, and bringing back Itumeleng Khune to the posts can be good for the team.”
