“No, we are not disappointed (about not signing Kodisang).” Kaizer Chiefs head coach Arthur Zwane told members of the media.

“I think we have assembled a very good squad. “We’ve got balance. We’ve still got Mahlatsi, we still have Sekgota.

“We have many players if we want to change the formation, to play with wingers.

“If we want to play with wing-backs, we still have players who can give us that power on the right and left flanks. I think we have balance.”

In other news, Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mnqgithi believes Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates are NOT their competitors this season.

The DStv Premiership is set to get underway next week and many expect the Glamour Boys and Buccaneers to challenge Sundowns.

But this won’t be the case according to the Mamelodi Sundowns mentor.

Mnqgithi believes last season’s fellow top four sides (Cape Town City, Royal AM and Stellenbosch) will battle it out for the league title with the Brazilians.

Mnqgithi believes Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates signed too many new faces, making it impossible for them to ‘gel’ this season.

“Other teams still have to fight to move from position six to position three and others have to fight to move into the top half of the table.” the Sundowns coach told Citizen.

“The teams who are in direct competition at this stage are Cape Town City, Stellenbosch and Royal AM.

“They are progressing very well as the seasons go by and I still expect them to cause a lot of problems.

“I see that Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs have signed a lot of good players but I understand that it takes a little bit longer for the team to gel when it’s got a lot of new faces,”
