'Forget about Wits players' - Chiefs told


Ex-Kaizer Chiefs star Robson Muchichwa says the club must ignore whatever is currently happening at Bidvest Wits and only focus on winning the league.

While the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates are spoilt for choice when it comes to picking up players in Braamfontein, Amakhosi manager Bobby Motaung has been watching in envy from the sidelines.

Arch-rivals Orlando Pirates have already landed Bafana Bafana captain Thulani Hlatshwayo as well as Namibian international Deon Hotto.

Mamelodi Sundowns are also understood to have won the race for Haashim Domingo, Gift Motupa and Ricardo Goss.

"It's a difficult issue whereby you know you see a somebody then you can't offer him," Muchichwa tells KickOff.com in the context of Chiefs' transfer ban that prohibits the signing of players.

"There are good players at Wits, especially in central defence. It's bad for Chiefs at the moment where they are. Things are not looking good in terms of buying players.

"I would focus on the league and see some of these things after that. If we focus on such things our focus will go wrong there on the league.

"I mean five years without winning the league, you will need to focus more. Right now we just need to do a Liverpool and win the league. The league right now is the most important thing for Chiefs.

"Yes, they need to beef up the squad, but just focus on what is there. What is there is the league now."
