Former SuperSport United star Diphetogo Selolwane has given his thoughts on Thatayaone Ditlhokwe’s upcoming move to Kaizer Chiefs at the end of the season. The Botswana captain signed a pre-contract with the Soweto giants in January and is set to officially join on July 1.

Ditlhokwe has established himself as one of the top center-backs in the Premier Soccer League since joining SuperSport from Botswana giants Township Rollers in January 2020. Selolwane, who played for SuperSport, Santos, and the University of Pretoria in the PSL, backed Ditlhokwe’s move to Chiefs. However, he also pointed out that the 24-year-old cannot change Amakhosi’s fortunes alone.

“It’s good for him that he’s going to play for Chiefs. It’s the dream of all the kids here to play for one of the three big teams namely Chiefs, Orlando Pirates, and Mamelodi Sundowns,” Selolwane told Isolezwe. “He is going to Chiefs, so it means a lot of money and a challenge. It will be an uphill battle for him but I can see the football fans have accepted him. He should be humble, work hard, and do his best.”

Selolwane also reminded Ditlhokwe that his dream does not end at Chiefs and that he should continue to aim for bigger things, including playing overseas.

“Even if you can play for Real Madrid, you still want to win trophies. Once you win them, you keep looking for more. So he shouldn’t think about ending up in Chiefs even though they are a team with a lot of fans in Mzansi.”

As the captain of the Botswana national team, Ditlhokwe brings leadership to the Chiefs squad, according to Selolwane. However, he also emphasized that Ditlhokwe cannot save the team alone and that it will require a team effort.

Kaizer Chiefs are currently enduring an eight-year trophy drought, and the addition of Ditlhokwe, along with TS Galaxy defender Given Msimango and Cape Town City star Mduduzi Mdantsane, who are also expected to join the team in the upcoming transfer window, is seen as part of their efforts to bring back the glory days.

Kaizer Chiefs will face Stellenbosch FC at FNB Stadium on Saturday as PSL action resumes after the recent FIFA international break. The fans will be hoping that Ditlhokwe and the rest of the team can work together to bring about a change in fortunes for the Soweto giants.
