CHIEFS BOSS NTSEKI ON NEW AND DIFFERENT GONZALEZ
While Gonzalez has the stature of a typical target man for Chiefs, Ntseki looks at his impact and why he is different from Chivaviro and Bimenyimana.
“I’ll always make reference to how Man City used to play without a striker. They were still very effective,” the Chiefs boss told journalists per iDiski Times.
“When I look at Chivaviro and Gonzalez, basically we are not going to play a game where we have a striker who is standing there all the time, whose helping the centre-backs defend the goal side.
“With him, we’ve got someone who’s very mobile. Somebody who when he’s on the sides he can be a winger, he can take players and he’s very strong on the ball.
