Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane has revealed why the club would only explore signing new players in the next transfer window.

This past weekend, Arthur Zwane lamented what he saw as two points dropped after his Kaizer Chiefs side had to settle for a goalless draw despite dominating proceedings against AmaZulu at the FNB stadium last Saturday.

The coach felt his team’s lack of cutting edge cost them victory, even though he was satisfied with their overall performance.

There has been talk that Chiefs could be looking at another striker as a potential addition to their squad to provide further firepower up front, but it seems like Amakhosi are not currently in the market for any further players.

“We are working on forming combinations with the players we have now so talk of bringing in new players interferes with that,” he said.

“The next window is only a few months away so I think that will give us time to see where we need to beef up but in the meantime, we have enough cover in all positions.

“We are a work in progress. When you try to get the combinations right and sometimes it is a case of trial and error.

“Good decision-making and understanding come with familiarity and the more we play and train together we’ll continue to get better.”

“We created more scoring chances. Unfortunately, we didn’t turn them into goals but the mood is very positive in the camp.”

The perception that Amakhosi lacked firepower was also addressed by Zwane: “Lack of goals is a concern, especially when you are playing at home.”

“It would be different to say we didn’t create enough opportunities but today we did enough in my opinion to get at least two goals and it was unfortunate that we couldn’t bury them.

“But that gives us coaches some encouragement to work harder on the things that will make the difference, like finishing and final third entry – getting the chemistry right.”

The second-half introduction of giant Burundian striker Caleb Bimenyimana gave a glimpse of the possible solution to the quandary of lacking a killer instinct on attack.

However, Zwane believes it will need a little time for everything to gel.

“In the modern game there is more of a focus on the front three but we’ll be looking to Caleb to add threat to our attack.

He’s got the height, he’s quick so I think he’s going to give us a different dimension.

We expect goals from him but with the help of other players. he isn’t going to do it alone,” he said.

Amakhosi are currently down in 12th place on the DStv Premiership table, with seven points from six matches.
