Kaizer Chiefs defender Sifiso Hlanti says he’s not surprised by the impact of Chiefs defender Edmilson Dove since his arrival at Naturena.

The 28-year-old defender was Amakhosi’s penultimate signing of the window, before Caleb Bimenyimana and  won two consecutive Man of the Match performances just five games into his arrival.

Dove has played every single Chiefs match he’s been available for since he arrived at Naturena and for Hlanti, the Mozambican’s form has not been a surprise.

“He [Dove] has been doing the most. Forget that he’s now here with us at Chiefs. But even in the past seasons when he played for Cape Town City. He’s come into the team and added value. We know what he’s capable of and we always do things a s a team,” said Hlanti.

“[On the Man of the Match awards] Who ever get those awards it just shows the work we do at training. We always work together and we always push one another.”

In Dove, Zwane alluded that he’s found the solution to close a leak in his defence.

Amakhosi have conceded just two goals in their last three matches, a step forward from the five goals in their first three games of the season.

Having wrapped their pre-World Cup fixtures and out of the MTN8, Amakhosi will only return to action on 12 November for the Carling Black label Cup where they’ll meet Orlando Pirates and possibly either AmaZulu or Mamelodi Sundowns.
