Arthur Zwane: Kaizer Chiefs will have a plan for Sundowns


Chiefs are set to do battle against the newly-crowned 2021/22 DStv Premiership champions when the two sides meet in a highly-anticipated encounter at the FNB Stadium on Sunday.

The Amakhosi head into the match on the back of a morale-boosting 1-0 win over Marumo Gallants and interim coach Arthur Zwane believes he will have a plan in place for Sundowns as he goes in seek of another win.

"Sundowns are playing more or less a similar style [to Marumo Gallants] but they are more deadly and dangerous, because they’ve got good runners upfront," Zwane said in his post match press conference on Tuesday.

"They have players like [Peter] Shalulile and other strikers, who can hold the ball and wait and have other players join in. That’s the difference between them, in terms of the quality.

"We are going to have to plan for them, like we planned for this one, and we will see how we can also exploit the space behind Sundowns defence, because we don't have those explosive players in our team at the moment.

"We only have Khama [Billiat] and Keagan [Dolly] who is also explosive, but in our number eight and number nine positions we don’t have those explosive players. The minute we improve on that aspect we will also be deadly going forward. We will try and work on that."
