Despite a goalless draw in the recent match against Royal AM, Kaizer Chiefs head coach Molefi Ntseki expressed his satisfaction with the performance of new striker Jasond Gonzalez. Making his first start for Chiefs, Gonzalez showcased his skills and nearly found the back of the net with a powerful header before being substituted in the 66th minute.
Ntseki commended Gonzalez and midfielder Lehlogonolo Matlou, who also made his first league start of the season. The coach believes that with time, both players will develop better cohesion and understanding of the team’s dynamics.
Although Chiefs had several opportunities to score, hitting the crossbar twice, Ntseki highlighted the team’s lack of composure in the final third. The head coach acknowledged the importance of decision-making and emphasized the need for players to remain composed and take advantage of their chances.
Ntseki reassured fans that this aspect of the game can be improved through training exercises that focus on both technical and tactical execution. Understanding the defenders’ positions and the goalkeeper’s location on the pitch is crucial, but maintaining mental composure is equally vital to capitalize on scoring opportunities.
Looking ahead, Chiefs have a challenging DStv Premiership encounter against SuperSport United on Wednesday. With limited time to work on their composure in front of goal, the team will need to quickly fine-tune their decision-making skills to secure a positive result.
