Khanye questions the quality of Kaizer Chiefs midfielders

Junior Khanye has criticized the club’s decision to allow Njabulo Blom to leave, citing the lack of quality options remaining in the Glamour Boys midfield. Here’s what he had to say:

“Yes the boy can be replaced but why did Kaizer Chiefs allowed the situation to come into this?” Khanye told KickOff.

“Was it about money or what? They must first explain that to us, he is their development player. Yes Blom all along he was not the type of players he is today. But in the last two months the boy deserved to have his contract renewed. He is from their development he understands the club’s culture. Why allow such a player to leave the team?”

“Yes he took some time to showcase his talent. What’s the reason for not meeting his demands? They should have tried by all means to keep him because he is versatile, he can play right-back, midfield and central defence. He took sometime to convince me if he can play in the central midfield position, but the last two months he did. They should have gone higher, they should have given him whatever he wanted.”

Khanye questions Kaizer Chiefs scouting

“I have a problem with the club’s scouting department, they bought the likes of Siyethemba Sithebe and there’s nothing that they offer. Yusuf Maart played but he had his moments. Phathusedzo Nange there’s nothing that he is offering. George Matlou he offers nothing. So Blom is the only one who managed to raise hand so far.

“So yes it was a big mistake to let go of a player who grew up in their own development. As for replacement, South African football we need to be honest only few people can play for Chiefs. They should have bought Andile Jali or Siphelele Mkhulise with the money they got from the Blom deal.”
