Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Jabulani Mendu has given his views on the expectations for the current Amakhosi squad, which he feels is lacking something important.
Amakhosi lost their first match of the season last Saturday against Polokwane City but are still sitting at the top of the Absa Premiership log.
Mendu believes Ernst Middendorp's side needs to be given time to mature and prove they can handle the pressure.
"Right now with Kaizer Chiefs, they are in a rebuilding process, so it's easy to judge from outside on whether they are going to manage or what," he said.
"At Chiefs you don't have time to rebuild, you just need someone who is going to come and win games for you, that's why it's always important and crucial as a team like them to sign players that know how to win."
Mendu questions the bunch of player Chiefs have in their squad as he believes the club can't be expected to win trophies when the majority of their squad don't have the experience of winning something.
"Guys, you need to understand, to know how to win, not everyone is a winner. You need to sign players that know how to win, players that have experience in winning trophies," he explained.
"How many players at Chiefs have won something in their careers? Now you are expecting them to win something for the Amakhosi faithful? I think we are asking too much, let's just give them space to build.
"I'm sure [coach Ernst] Middendorp is doing a great job, we support every decision he's making. Maybe let's talk in January, things might change by that time."
