Ex-Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Mandla Masango has weighed in on Amakhosi’s assessment of the first half of the DStv Premiership season.
The Soweto giants are currently placed sixth on the log standings with 24 after 16 games.
From those 16 games, the Glamour Boys have won seven and drew three and six in the process.
Before the AFCON tournament break, Chiefs won three games in a row and drew as they are finally gelling under the tutelage of Cavin Johnson. The latter took over the coaching reins at the club on an interim basis in October 2023 after Amakhosi cut ties with coach Molefi Ntseki.
MANDLA MASANGO’S ASSESSMENT OF KAIZER CHIEFS
“I think is not easy to give a scorecard because of certain elements like changes of coaches,” Masango told FARPost.
“But, now they have won, I think, three games in a row and draw the last game, which is an improvement from how they started the season under the guidance of coach Molefi Ntsenki.
“I think there can still be room for improvement. But I think Cavin [Johnson] has started well. Now, it’s a matter of having time to keep the momentum going.”
KAIZER CHIEFS’ NEXT ASSIGNMENT
Chiefs were supposed to return to action on Tuesday, 13 February 2024, against TS Galaxy in a league clash at the New Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane. However, the PSL has postponed the mid-week fixtures.
This comes after the PSL confirmed that they will postpone the mid-week fixtures after receiving communication that Bafana Bafana will only return to South Africa from their successful AFCON tournament on Wednesday, 14 February 2024.
The rescheduled dates for these matches will be communicated in due course.
As things stand, Chiefs’ next assignment will be against Royal AM on Sunday, 18 February, away from home.
The game will take place at Harry Gwala Stadium, with the kick-off scheduled for 15:30.
