- Giovanni Solinas believes winning three PSL matches in a row shouldn’t be seen as an achievement for a club such as Kaizer Chiefs
- The Glamour Boys had a nightmare start to the new season before bouncing back in recent weeks to record three wins on the bounce
- Kaizer Chiefs are currently third on the PSL log and are showing ominous (for opposition teams) signs of improvement
Giovanni Solinas believes winning three PSL matches in a row shouldn’t be seen as an achievement for a club such as Kaizer Chiefs and has vowed to continue to push his playing squad to improve in all aspects of the game.
Kaizer Chiefs endured a nightmare start to the 2018/19 season, going five PSL matches before recording their first win of the campaign. The side has since bounced back to record three wins in a row.
The wins have propelled Kaizer Chiefs to third place on the PSL log and the team are showing ominous signs (for opposition teams) of continuing to improve. Solinas has previously declared that the best of Kaizer Chiefs was yet to come.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Solinas came in for heavy criticism from frustrated Amakhosi fans after the poor start to the season. The early results seemed to bolster claims from various quarters that Solinas was not up to the task of coaching a club such as Kaizer Chiefs.
Kaizer Chiefs boss Kaizer Motaung stepped in and said he was not concerned about the early results and reiterated his belief that Solinas was the right man for the job and simply needed more time to implement his own philosophy.
Sport24.com reported that Solinas pointed out that he had only joined the club in his full capacity a week before the 2018/19 season started which left him with no time to work with the players.
Solinas used the recent FIFA mandated two-week break in play to work with his side and has gone unbeaten since the league resumed play.
The Italian-born coach recently said football was a game which required time for teams to improve and intense training to correct mistakes and problem areas. Solinas said the team suffered because he was not part of the setup during the pre-season training schedule.
Solinas revealed that he revelled in difficult circumstances and said this pressure motivated him to find creative solutions to problems.
Solinas told kickoff.co.za that he and his technical staff had analysed the past three seasons to find solutions to problems which had begun under Steve Komphela.
Solinas said he was impressed with his current squad of players because they were open to suggestions and were more than willing to learn new skills and implement plans which were aimed at improving their own performances.
