Former Kaizer Chiefs star Josta Dladla has opened up on the immense pressure that comes with playing for the Glamour Boys.
Dladla represented the Amakhosi between 2009 to 2015, making over a century of appearances for the club.
The midfielder believes part of the problem Molefi Ntseki faces is getting his players to be confident and execute his ideas.
At a normal club, this is simple for a coach but the pressure that being a Glamour Boy comes with, makes it challenging for players.
WHY KAIZER CHIEFS PLAYERS ARE STRUGGLING – JOSTA
“You see, it seems easy to play for Chiefs where you are outside but when you join the team the pressure is too much. Wearing that jersey comes with a lot of pressure.” Josta Dladla said as quoted by SoccerLaduma.
“The legends who played before us set the bar too high for all of us to maintain it and players have to work hard to do that.
“It’s true the coach was aware of the pressure that comes with coaching Chiefs. At the time Ntseki accepted to be the head coach but the players should be there to help him.”

“I think the difference with him is [that] he’s passionate about football, he’s passionate about coaching.” the Orlando Pirates icon said as quoted by SABC SPORT.
“He works so hard, I think he works 24 hours that guy, I don’t think he sleeps. I don’t think he’s got a bed, I think his bed is a laptop. He just wants to look at football, new tactics, and blah, blah, blah. You can see the signs of hard work.
“I think at Sundowns they gave him the platform, I think other teams didn’t give him the platform – they didn’t understand, they wanted the success now.”
