Kaizer Chiefs’ head coach, Molefi Ntseki, remains positive despite their 1-0 defeat to Young Africans SC at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium.

He believes that the team lived up to expectations tactically, sticking to their planned approach for the game. The match, which took place in Dar es Salaam during the fourth annual Wananchi day, saw six of the club’s new signings starting in the eleven.

However, they couldn’t secure a win, with Kennedy Musonda scoring the only goal for the home side.

While the performance received mixed reactions from the club’s supporters, Ntseki emphasizes that it was just the first step in their plan for the 2023/24 season.

He explains that they had a tactical strategy in place for the game, acknowledging that both teams analyze each other and make adjustments accordingly.

Ntseki stresses the importance of building endurance, not just physically, but also tactically and mentally, to face the challenges throughout the season.

The match, played in front of a sold-out stadium with over 60,000 fans, was deemed the perfect preparation for the upcoming season, especially under difficult away conditions.

Ntseki believes that the experience gained from playing against the Tanzanian league champions with confidence and composure in front of their home fans and new coach was valuable for the team’s growth.

Looking ahead, Chiefs will head to Botswana for their final pre-season fixture against Township Rollers at the National Stadium on Saturday, 29th July.
