Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena has praised Kaizer Chiefs for doing good business in the current transfer.
“They (Chiefs) seem to have taken a direction they haven’t taken in a very long time. When you look at the last three coaches [they’ve had], there would have been a heavy reliance on players like Rama [Mphahlele], [Bernard] Parker and [Erick] Mathoho,” Mokwena told reporters ahead of Saturday’s DStv Premiership clash against Chiefs at Loftus Versfeld Stadium.
“But it looks like the cycle is changing from how the vision has been set from the top, and therefore that influences a lot more things like the selection of the coach. Arthur knows the DNA of the club, he played for them, worked in the academy, and served as assistant to many of the [previous] coaches.
“That also influences their recruitment policies because you’ve seen the market now, even when there are certain bigger players available, they’ve resorted to going for a Yusuf Maart and AshleyDu Preez, who are a lot younger than what would be available for Chiefs in a normal context of a couple of years ago.”
Sundowns take on Chiefs in the DStv premiership clash on Saturday. Kickoff for this match is 3pm.
