Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby ‘Bobsteak’ Motaung believes Giovanni Solinas is the perfect fit for Kaizer Chiefs and has given the Italian-born head coach his full and absolute support. Motaung said Solinas reminded him of some of the legendary coaches who have worked at the club.
In a radio interview, Motaung praised Solinas’ work ethic and said the man was a workaholic which was reminiscent of some of the coaches which had been at the club in years gone by. Motaung added that Solinas’ playing style fit with the style which the club wanted to play.
Motaung said the players at the club had responded incredibly well to Solinas and his coaching philosophy. Motaung added that the senior players in the squad had helped Solinas settle into the club.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Kaizer Chiefs supporters were initially shell-shocked by the appointment of Solinas who was a relative unknown in South Africa. Many questioned whether he had the credentials needed to take control of a massive club like Kaizer Chiefs.
Sport24.co.za reported that the side’s early results under Solinas seemed to bolster claims that Solinas was not up to the task of coaching in such a high-pressure environment.
Solinas asked fans to give him more time to work with the players. Solinas pointed out that he did not have any pre-season time with the club which had hurt preparations but said he was confident that the side would improve.
Solinas seems to have kept to his word, Kaizer Chiefs have looked imperious after the FIFA mandated break having gone on to win three matches on the bounce.
Motaung said he was confident that the recent change in form was a sign that the team had turned the corner and would achieve great success in their coming matches.
Kaizer Chiefs will face Highlands Park in their next PSL encounter on 2 October.
