What is wrong with Kaizer Chiefs? This question has been relevant for close to 10 years. The legendary Teko Modise feels that he has the answer.


So, the club known as Amakhosi have not opened a celebratory bottle of champagne in nearly 10 years. The same period has seen the club lose a string of sponsors while also changing coaches too rapidly.

According to Modise, Chiefs simply need to revive the playing style and philosophy. Secondly, Chiefs need to employ a club legend in the technical team.

“Chiefs have changed coaches. In the last two seasons, they have had three different coaches and three different styles of play,” Modise told the Citizen’s Khaya Ndubane.

“I think the biggest thing that needs to happen at Kaizer Chiefs is to go back to the culture of what Kaizer Chiefs is … the way Kaizer Chiefs play. It’s something we have not seen in a long time, and that means maybe they need to find the coach that will instil this kind of play and the players that will buy into it.

“I also think that what might help is to have people on the bench that understand the Black and Gold, players that have played for the club and won trophies with the club.

“That will remind the players about the importance of winning trophies. You need to have legends closer to the club if you want to succeed because there’s certain information that coaches are unable to get to the players, but legends can,” Modise concluded.
