George Maluleka wants to make things right this season

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder George Maluleka has revealed that the club is eager to make things right this season.

The Amakhosi haven’t won a trophy since lifting the Absa Premiership title at the end of the 2014-15 campaign, and pressure is mounting on everyone at Naturena to deliver the goods this term.

Chiefs beat Free State Stars 2-0 at Goble Park on Tuesday evening for a second league win on the bounce.

Maluleka, who won the man-of-the-match accolade, was one of seven changes made by head coach Giovanni Solinas from the team that beat Cape Town City 4-1 this past weekend.

“It’s been quite a while, about three months or so. I’ve been working my way back. The guys have been motivating me making sure that always I’m in good hands. I’m very proud of the boys and I’m grateful with the amount of effort they put in tonight,” Maluleka told SuperSport TV in the aftermath.

“With the team that we have there’s a lot of quality and we have a lot to offer. It’s been a difficult three years or so we want to make sure that we make things right this season.

“There’s a lot to offer you can see the team was changed today – the other guys were given a rest because of the game on Saturday. But we came out to show that we’re one team and there’s one philosophy we followed it tonight.”

“It gets tough but it’s also good for the team because you give your best all the time. It’s good for competition, it’s good for the next guy so we push ourselves to the limit,” Maluleka concluded.


Township Rollers’ Nikola Kavazovic set to be new Kaizer Chiefs coach

With speculation performing the rounds that Kaizer Chiefs are looking for coach Steve Komphela’s substitute, a supply in Botswana has verified that Township Rollers coach Nikola Kavazovic will direct Amakhosi following season.

Sources near to the enhancement of Botswana uncovered that the former Amakhosi defender will leave the Naturena-centered facet as his 3-calendar year deal expires at the stop of the season.

Just right after their 1- win over Platinum Stars at the FNB Stadium, Komphela’s post-match reaction advised that he is sending his farewell messages.

He spoke to SuperSport Tv set right after the game and reported: “as he goes out, he many thanks to everybody who has put stress on him”.

The fourth-positioned Chiefs have been under stress to bag a win right after suffering a 3- defeat against Chippa United at the exact same venue previous weekend.

Ensuing from that defeat, the club’s fans pelted the coach and the players with objects as they exited the pitch, shouting for the coach to leave.

“As I go out, I must thank everybody” reported Komphela right after Chiefs‘ win on Sunday.

“Personally, I must thank everybody who has put stress on me. I could not have been the coal that I am. I could not have been the diamond that I am. I would have stayed a very simple muddy house.
“It is by way of stress that you get greater.

“But you have to take the stress mainly because at the again of not accepting stress you are denying “God what he desires you to do.

“He is getting ready for another environment – it could be outside football, it could be anywhere else. So do not say no to difficulties, relatively search for more knowledge.

“I have developed immensely. I am not the exact same coach that came to Chiefs, as I go out I must thank everybody.

“The stress that you get tends to make you a greater man or woman. Emotionally, I was extremely weak as a man or woman but if you inquire me now the thoughts are much better and that moves further into the ranges of religion.

“Maybe I want to be more faithful and the only way to do that is to have thoughts that are potent and stable, that almost nothing hurts you but that comes from considering.”

The Soweto giants have endured a two and a fifty percent trophyless decades below Komphela’s reign and word is that Kavazovic will head to Johannesburg and triumph the former Bafana Bafana skipper.

“Yes, Kavazovic is coming to the PSL and choose over at Kaizer Chiefs – Komphela is leaving,” reported the supply.

The Serbian manager has led Rollers to the CAF Champions League group stages, Popa (as Rollers is affectionately regarded) turned the very first club from Botswana to attain that feat.

In their domestic league campaign, they sit at the summit of the BTC Premiership table with 53 points from 24 games.
