'Most of the Chiefs players need to go'


Kaizer Chiefs legend Robson Muchichwa is not impressed at all with the way things have been unfolding at his former club.

Following the club's embarrassing exit in the Nedbank Cup to lower division team Richards Bay, 'Mashamplani' says the current crop of players have proven they are not Chiefs material.

The hot-and-cold Amakhosi were made to look like an away team at their home ground FNB Stadium as they lost 2-1 to the GladAfrica Championship side.

Chiefs finished the game with 10 men after Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya got an unnecessary red card, fouling a player who posed no danger and forgetting he was on a yellow.

Amakhosi are expected to undergo a squad overhaul next season, but Muchichwa warns the club bosses to make their decisions carefully.

"Ya I think that's where they need to take care of the situation because sometimes you can say you are taking care of the situation, then you are killing it dead," Muchichwa tells KickOff.com.

"They need a very clever transition you know in terms of players. Ya for me most of these players need to go. Most of the current players who are there, they need to go. They don't deserve to be there.

"It's not us who are saying it, they've proven they don't deserve to be there. They don't know how to play for a big team, for right now we are stuck with a bunch of players who don't deserve to be there.

"Yes a transition is needed but we need to be more clever about it. We must not do it with emotions though."

Muchichwa says he is disappointed with the way the likes of Siphelele Ntshangase and Ntiya-Ntiya have failed every time they are given an opportunity to play.

"I think those guys have failed the club, those youngsters. They've been there for how many seasons? I think maybe two or four seasons now, and they are still on the same level," he continues.

"So for me we need a change. Maybe they don't realise why they are there. Ntshangase, ya he's not getting game-time but he has disappointed. How many seasons have you been there and nothing has been happening? As a player you need to look at yourself and say, 'What have I done for the club?'

"So far he has done nothing and if you were to say he needs to leave, I would say yes. He is one of the players who needs to leave I think. It's not working for the club.

"If the coach says he is there next season for his plans, then fine. I think Gavin Hunt, he's got it. For now let's just build the team for next season."
