DURBAN – Giovanni Solinas is optimistic that Kaizer Chiefs will produce a top goal-scorer come the end of the season.
Amakhosi’s attackers started the season like a house on fire, but are going through a dry spell.
Solinas, though, is not worried about his misfiring attack.
“We have good players. I’m not worried about this (dry spell). I’m sure that when this season ends and when the league finishes, our strikers would have more goals. I’m confident (about that),” Solinas said.
Chiefs strikers haven’t scored in the past three matches. Ramahlwe Mphahlele netted the winner for Amakhosi against SuperSport United in the quarter-final of the Telkom Knockout the previous weekend.
Defensive midfielder Willard Katsande came to Chiefs’ rescue as they laboured to a 1-0 victory against Black Leopards thereafter.
They fired blanks this past weekend in a 0-0 stalemate against Chippa United at Moses Mabhida.
“I’m not worried about this. If I check the last three games, we created more chances.
“It is very important to create chances. If we were not creating chances, then I would start to get worried, but we are creating,” Solinas explained.
Khama Billiat has scored most goals in the league for Amakhosi. The Zimbabwean forward has notched four goals.
Billiat trails Tshegofatso Mabasa of Bloemfontein Celtic by one goal.
“In each and every game, we are creating chances. I’m not getting worried. We have very good strikers. We have the best strikers in the league.
“We have (Leonardo) Castro, Billiat, (Dumisani) Zuma, (Bernard) Parker, Lebo Manyama, and Pule (Ekstein) is also an attacking player,” Solinas concluded.
