Some [players] need a bit of time to get back into [the squad] – Ernst Middendorp on Willard Katsande

Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp explains why Willard Katsande has been missing in the Amakhosi starting lineup.

“The routine on our side is that we go through the normal process of selecting players, starting the week with those who should be in the 20 and then 18-man squad,” said Middendorp.

“And we have a certain idea, and in the moment some players are in. It’s not only about one player, but some players are in while some need a bit of time to get back into it.

Ernst Middendorp on Kaizer Chiefs Goalkeeping Woes: It’s Just Irritating

Kaizer Chiefs have lost points from good positions in three of their last six games in the Premiership because of goalkeeping errors. Ernst Middendorp isn’t happy.

Since Itumeleng Khune got injured at the beginning of the year Kaizer Chiefs have been having goalkeeping issues. Amakhosi coach Ernst Middendorp voiced out his frustration on the issue.

“If I had an explanation for why we conceded these [soft] goals against Sundowns, Cape Town City or today again, I would give you an answer,”

“But this is unexplainable, it’s just irritating and not comfortable for all of us [to deal with]. I think to concede in such a way, I didn’t see any other opportunities for Polokwane City.

“With all due respect, we scored two goals.”

We as supporters take for granted how important a goalkeeper is. They aren’t many outstanding goalkeepers on Itumeleng Khune’s level. Kaizer Chiefs signed Chippa United’s Daniel Akpeyi in the January transfer window. I thought that was strange because Akpeyi is a mistake-prone keeper.



Ernst Middendorp and Kaizer Chiefs’ hands are tied there isn’t much they can do about this situation. They could thrust young keeper Bvuma into the limelight but Kaizer Chiefs fans are unforgiving and should he make mistakes that cost Amakhosi points the supporters will be on his back.
