As reported by Sowetan LIVE, Zwane said there was a lack of quality players in the market, adding that there weren’t many players who could handle the pressure of playing for the Soweto giants.

“Unfortunately, there aren’t too many players out there that have the desire and quality of playing for a team of Kaizer Chiefs’ calibre and the demands that come with the responsibility of playing for this club.

He added that the club was scouting and doing everything in their power to get the right players to the club.

Zwane also commented on the fact that with Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates no longer challenging Mamelodi Sundowns, the standard of the sport was failing, The South African reported.

“It’s a big problem, not only for us but for other teams as well. You can even see our national team is ailing. Once teams like Chiefs and Orlando Pirates are not competing with a Mamelodi Sundowns that’s been doing well for years, the standard of football drops in the country,” Zwane added.
