Kat­sande de­fends coach on Chief’s poor form

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sports -

KAIZER Chiefs’ mid­field dy­namo and War­riors’ cap­tain Wil­lard Kat­sande says that it is the play­ers — not the coach — who must take the blame for the club’s poor form of late.

The Amakhosi take on High­lands Park to­mor­row night as they look to pick up their first win since April, with the Zim­bab­wean in­sist­ing that they are work­ing on turn­ing their for­tunes around.

Pres­sure seems to be heap­ing on Steve Kom­phela fol­low­ing Chiefs’ in­abil­ity to win any of their last six league games, but Kat­sande is adamant that the blame should not be laid at his door.

Speak­ing to the PSL’s of­fi­cial web­site, Kat­sande said, “It’s un­fair to crit­i­cise the coach be­cause we are a club, it’s like us as play­ers crit­i­cis­ing our own play­ers. So I think it’s un­fair; we need to take re­spon­si­bil­ity and raise our hands and say, ‘now we need to play bet­ter’. I think that’s the main thing and not to sin­gle out an in­di­vid­ual — that’s un­fair.

“We are work­ing on that to change the sit­u­a­tion. The only peo­ple who can change that is us who are in the sit­u­a­tion. It is just a mat­ter of time un­til we will get it right. I think we just need to bury the chances we cre­ate and also to avoid con­ced­ing in the first-half. That’s our big set­back for now.”
