CAPE TOWN – Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp has hit back at claims that he is defensive coach.
The German tactician had just watched his charges overcome AmaZulu 2-0 in an Absa Premiership encounter at Durban King Zwelithini Stadium when he took exception to the claim when quizzed on SuperSport.
“You know, I’ve said it several times, I don’t know where these rumours come from [that] I am a defensive coach. I have no idea.
“We have really done our reputation in terms of scouting, that we need the players in the front, going to Zambia, keeping Leonardo [Castro], having Dumi [Dumisani Zuma], having [:azarous] Kambole. More players who make it variable for us,” said the German.
“These players were not there last season. They were not even able to play for Chiefs. I think this is something, when you have the ingredients, then it equals a good meal and w have seen it today,” he said.
