-The Italian has promised to reward fans with attacking football from his side. He emphasised on working on the players condition to full fitness.
-The coach appealed for patience as he tries to impose his philosophy on the side pointing out that it will take time before his ides start to bear fruit
-The coach praised the set up at Kaizer Chiefs saying its a big club on and off the pitch. The Italian who was granted his work permit has now taken full charge at the Soweto based side.
Kaizer Chiefs head coach Giovanni Solinas has promised that the club will play attacking football during his tenure as head coach. The Italian let out on his plans following being granted his work permit. Having now assumed the reigns the club faithfuls are eager to see the plans of the coach and the ideas he is to drill onto a squad desperate for success after recent disappointing seasons.
The coach bemoaned that the first game of the season will be against current league Champions Mamelodi Sundowns saying he needed more time to prepare for such a game. Solinas told the club website that Sundowns are favourites because they have a good coach and they prepared early ahead of their Champions League fixtures. However, that has not hindered him from promising the fans that his squad will return to attacking football. He has barely had enough time to settle having watched the pre-season games from the stands as Assistant coach Patrick Mabedi was in charge.
The coach highlighted that he was pleased with the team's play including in the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Sundowns in the inaugural Helix cup played a couple of weeks ago and again at the hands of Cape Town City by a similar scoreline in Mpumalanga. Briefly.co.za ascertained that Solinas was happy with the attacking quality at his disposal in the likes of Leonardo Castro, Khama Billiat, Bernard Parker and Siphiwe Tshabalala.

The 50 year old Solinas urged caution from the club's fans adding that change will not come over night and they would have to be patient as the players adapt to his methods. The gaffer told Kickoff.com that; "In football you need time, because one can’t change too much overnight. To prepare a winning team takes time.”
He will, however, know at the back of his mind the pressure and the demands of coaching one of South Africa's most followed clubs and that the change he hopes to impose will come sooner rather than later to calm the nerves of the restless Chiefs' faithfuls.
