Rene Richards questions Kaizer Chiefs players, not Gavin Hunt

accreditation

Kaizer Chiefs are currently facing a very tough period of not getting good results, which has created a lot of discussion around whether some players are still worthy to be in the team.

Amakhosi have started the 2020/21 season with many challenges including injuries to key players and being unable to sign any fresh talent after losing their appeal against a FIFA transfer ban.

These factors are starting to look like excuses after another underwhelming display in a 0-0 draw with TS Galaxy on Wednesday night.

Chiefs have already been thumped 3-0 twice this season, by each of their main rivals.

Just as former defender Gardner Seale said earlier this week, another ex-player Rene Richards believes there is a lack of drive from the players.

"It's like they don't have energy and willingness, I mean that's definitely not on the coach because I know Gavin Hunt is an inspirational and motivational coach," Richards tells snl24.com/kickoff.

"Gavin loves his players, he gives them the same treatment and respect. This boils down to players because I've been in this situation when I was at Chiefs where most of us lost motivation and we were losing week after week."

Richards believes the squad is good enough to deliver a trophy as long as the players are in a good state of mind.

"Until everyone's got their mojo back... but with the calibre of players Chiefs have, they can do better. Players need to be a team, not individuals. Play for the badge."
