Don’t overhype players – Kaizer Chiefs

“When it comes to that one it’s unfortunate, I spend maybe two to four hours a day with Mdu, you know, it depends who are the people who spend the most time with him,” the Kaizer Chiefs head coach said as quoted by IdiskiTimes.

“Yes we share ideas with his father, he comes from a very good background, so they’re helping us. But the challenge is, it’s not only Mdu. These are the challenges most of our talented players are facing out there.

“The way we hype them up and we end up saying things we shouldn’t be saying, and as soon as they hear those things, sometimes they start thinking they have arrived.”

“So we needed to kill the game off. We kept pushing the boys from the bench that get the killer goal, then we’ll get the third one. Ja we didn’t get it but we did create chances.” the Kaizer Chiefs coach continued.

“[Wandile] Duba had about two, [Kamohelo] Mahlatsi also could have done better. This is one game we could have scored more goals and it’s still a worrying factor for me that we don’t take the chances that we create.”
