Kaizer Chiefs defender Dillan Solomons has made an honest admission as he reflects on his first seven months at Amakhosi.
Solomons joined Chiefs in June last year in a four-year deal from Swallows.
The 26-year-old featured 17 times for Amakhosi before he was sidelined with an injury. Solomons dislocated his shoulder during the 2-0 win against Royal AM at Peter Mokaba Stadium last month.
It was expected that Solomoms could be out for some time, but it turns out he could be back within a period of two weeks.
Speaking to FARPost in Polokwane ahead of the DStv Premiership clash with Golden Arrows on Sunday, Solomons admits his first season at the club has been a bit inconsistent.
“A bit inconsistent, I am not going to lie. But it’s about competition, and that’s what I want. I wanted to have competition, and hopefully, it will bring out the best in me.
“Ngezana has been playing right back for a few years. So I don’t think he is new to the position, so he knows what to do.
“Sometimes you do help him, but for me, it’s not giving too much information because he knows what he needs to do, and he obviously gets information from the coach.”
“For me, my injury is coming along well. It’s not as bad as expected, so hopefully, I will be back soon. The team has been doing well, so I am very happy for them.
“They are using that momentum of winning the Nedbank Cup against Maritzburg United to take it to the league, which is good for us, and hopefully, this weekend, we can get another three points.
