Seale: Chiefs win proves players to blame

Premiership

Kaizer Chiefs legend Rudolf Seale says the club's impressive win over Chippa United proves Stuart Baxter is not to blame for their poor start.

In what was their best performance so far this season, the Glamour Boys thrashed Chippa United by 4-0 as Khama Billiat and Keagan Dolly continued their budding partnership.

The win takes Amakhosi to eighth position on the DStv Premiership standings with Seale believing that his former club has now turned a corner.

"They've been together for a couple of weeks now, and the coach and players are starting to get used to each other," Seale tells Kickoff.com.

"I think they have turned the corner now, and they're getting used to each other.

"After Gavin Hunt's sacking, I think they should now decide that they can't always be sacking coaches. They should instead turn their focus on these players.

"It cannot always be the coach. We just have to raise our performance to the expected levels.

"This win shows that if opponents can score four goals against us, we can do the same as well.

"I can say they've realised that it cannot always be the coach. By the time the second round comes, I expect to see Chiefs in fourth or fifth position on the log. I don't expect Kaizer Chiefs to win the league.

"This season will only show that we have the potential to win the league next season.

"I'm very, very impressed, but you know after one win we shouldn't get carried away.

"Remember a couple of weeks ago I said Kaizer Chiefs was a team and not yet a club. I think they are building to becoming a club now. I'm just hoping we need to be consistent from now on. A draw should be the worst-case scenario result."
