Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Robson Muchichwa backs club's decision to axe players and calls for new combinations


Amakhosi released 11 players, four of which saw there contract expire and nine having their contracts terminated, as nine others were either transfer listed, loaned out or traded for new personal at the end of last season.

Muchichwa has fully backed the club's decision to overhaul the team after such an underwhelming season, and says he barely recongised his former employers.

"I think Chiefs needed to do this [axe players]... If you don’t pull your weight at a team like Kaizer Chiefs you need be out of the team,’’ Muchichwa tells

"Because the team that played last season, for me, I was not happy. Things were not happening and there was no combination; there was no fighting spirit. In actual fact, for me, there was nothing.

"We could lose against some small teams: Platinum Stars, Chippa United and, no disrespect to them, but that is not acceptable when you playing for Kaizer Chiefs because it is a big club."

'Zumara' adds that The Glamour Boys need to build mopre confidence in their game and calls on Komphela to learn from Mamelodi Sundowns in trying out new combinations.

"I think they need to build up the confidence – that is number one. Number two: they need to be build combinations," he adds.

"Mostly they need to combine because you can’t win games if you don’t combine. Like Mamelodi Sundowns, [last season] they were winning games because they were combining.

"Most of Sundowns players were consistent and that is what Chiefs players need to do. They need to be consistent in order to win games, and they need to combine and work as a team as well."
