Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas bemoans PSL schedule after draw with Baroka at Peter Mokaba

Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas has criticised the PSL calendar, which has seen his team play four matches since the season started on August 4.

Solinas made the point after his side produced a below-par performance in the second half against Baroka FC during their 1-1 draw at Peter Mokaba Stadium last night.

Amakhosi, who beat Free State Stars 3-0 in the MTN8 on the weekend, next visit Maritzburg United on Friday as the games continue to come in thick and fast for the Glamour Boys.

"These fixtures, this calendar is for the robot, not for the human beings," Solinas said.

"It is not possible that every two days we play and travel. We travel four hours and play Saturday. No time to recover and no time for training.

"So it is a big problem but this is a schedule we accept, and we will try to give our best to win the game and to play well."

Asked if he believes he has enough players to cope with the workload, Solinas said he doesn't like to make too many changes to his starting line-up.

"You can't change too many players because you will lose the shape and the confidence. It is not possible you can change four or three players, but not too much."

Chiefs, who have collected two points from three Absa Premiership matches, will play Maritzburg at Harry Gwala Stadium looking for their first league victory of the campaign.
