Kaizer Chiefs caretaker coach Arthur Zwane says gone are the days when the Soweto giants will play football that is not pleasing to the eye just to get results.

Speaking after the club’s first win after a five game winless streak last night at FNB stadium, Zwane said it is important that Chiefs goes back to its roots of playing attractive football.
He says the football the club plays should appeal to its multitudes of football fans.

“We can’t just come here playing at home, get the ball -kick it forward and then lose it then oppositions are on top of us, no those day are over.” said Zwane

“We have the followers, we have the support – everyone that is behind us, so they want to watch something that is pleasing in the eye and the minute we get that right I have no doubt the results will start coming.” he added

The 48-year-old Amakhosi interim mentor, who also appears to be a favourite for the vacant Chiefs head coaching job, said going forward their recruitment strategy will be informed by the brand of football they will be playing.

“Yes that’s the key, whoever is gonna come in will obviously have to fit-in in the system and the way of playing because it will be pointless for us to try to play the way we want to play but we not getting the players that will fit into that system.” Zwane enlightened

It is not a secret that Chiefs is very short on quality players especially in the attack and at the heart of the midfield as compared to their arch-rivals Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns.
The over-reliance on Khama Billiat and Keagan Dolly has been glaring in their attack this season, with the two players having contributed a combined 15 goals and 13 assists overall.
Zwane said going forward their style of play will accommodate players like Billiat and Dolly, especially their defensive duties.
