Another Kaizer Chiefs legend Tefu Mashamaite feels the current squad lacks confidence but says they must sweat for redemption.
Tefu Mashamaite feels coach Molefi Ntseki’s side has no confidence, especially after their 1-0 loss at the hands of Cape Town City last week.
After the loss, a lot is now said about Chiefs and Ntseki’s coaching credentials, but Mashamaite states that hard work will redeem the club.
Additionally, the Limpopo-born legend believes Chiefs must fight and work harder for them to return to winning ways.
LEGEND: CHIEFS SQUAD MUST SWEAT FOR REDEMPTION
The decorated former Bidvest Wits and Chiefs central defender argues that redemption will need lots of energy from the team – they have suffered four losses so far.
“They will have to work hard to get results that will give them back their confidence,” Mashamaite said in Durban.
“They must start now and focus their minds on working for a good result.
“If you lose constantly, you lose confidence, but if they win consecutive games, they can gain confidence again.”
CHIEFS MUST FIGHT FOR THE REMAINING TROPHIES – RETIRED DEFENDER
The lanky legend who partnered with Erick Mathoho under former Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter urges the players to challenge for trophies.
As things stand, Chiefs have the Carling Knockout Cup, Nedbank, and the league to fight for this season.
In the recent Bafana squad, coach Hugo Broos only selected Sibongiseni Mthethwa but Mduduzi Mdantsane is part of the squad as a replacement for Percy Tau, ‘Masha’ is not happy.
“They must understand that not being called up to the national team is not good at all,” added the legend.
“It means that they are not ready to play for Bafana and they will have to pull up their socks because it is a big shame that Kaizer Chiefs players are left out of Bafana.
“This means that they have to have a look at themselves and find out what they are not doing right.”
