Will Middendorp Show Faith in Baccus?

Kaizer Chiefs’ coach Ernst Middendorp will have a tough task on his hands when it comes to selecting his starting midfielders, particularly since George Maluleka has left Amakhosi for Mamelodi Sundowns. ‘Mido’ signed a pre-contract with Masandawana in March, days before Premier Soccer League (PSL) chairman Irvin Khoza confirmed the suspension of football. In late June, Kaizer Chiefs announced that they would not be extended the 31-Year-Old midfielder’s contract for the remainder of the season. ‘Mido’ was a mainstay in Chiefs central midfield, meaning his departure raises questions as to whether Middendorp will deploy Kearyn Baccus to fill the void.

Speaking on SL Radio’s The Carwash podcast, PSL legend Teko Modise argued: “I think it would suicidal for the coach not [to] use Baccus because of the qualities that he has. Plus, he’s been playing [regularly] so to bring back Nthangase would be so much pressure for the boy to perform, and these are the games where you need people who are ready to perform and do it for the team.”

Former Ajax Cape Town goalkeeper Sean Roberts added, “I believe he’s going to be the replacement, to be honest. He’s able to go forward, he does very well defensively, he’s impressed me massively in the games that he’s played. The key is to have Katsande there, and whoever’s gonna play next to him and I do believe it will be Baccus.”

Would Chiefs Give Maluleka a PSL Winner's Medal?

Before George Maluleka officially joined Mamelodi Sundowns in June, he had played a vital role in Kaizer Chiefs’ midfield and featured prominently in their Absa Premiership title chase. Despite this, Amakhosi opted out of extending his contract for the remainder of the season after football was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak in March. Former Sundowns star Teko Modise and former Ajax Cape Town goalkeeper Sean Roberts. raise the question on The Carwash Podcast; Would Kaizer Chiefs award ‘Mido’ a PSL Winners’ medal, should they secure the championship?

Modise stated, “The question that I also wanna ask is, if Kaizer Chiefs happens to win the league, what are they gonna do? Are they gonna give George Maluleka his medal or what are they gonna say? For me it’s very disturbing to that happening because he played almost every game, he qualifies to win the league. But knowing how teams operate in South Africa… It’ll be very interesting to see in the end what’s gonna happen.”

Brian Baloyi: Chiefs Won’t Be Happy To Hear Me Say This...

Compared to last season, Kaizer Chiefs have improved drastically from a side that finished outside of the top eight in ninth position during the 2018/19 campaign to leading the Premier Soccer League (PSL) standings and challenging for the title this season. Despite this success, Amakhosi and their coach Ernst Middendorp had come under criticism before the suspension of football, for their lack of creativity and poor form against teams who are lower in the table. Kaizer Chiefs legend Brian Baloyi did not mince words when providing his analysis to SL Radio.

Baloyi stated. “I think the coach plays according to the strength of his team, and looking at his style of play [and] what he has at his disposal, the way they’ve been playing, it’s been just - and I’m sorry to say this, and I know [Chiefs] haven’t been happy with me saying this - but they’ve been one-dimensional. That’s the biggest challenge, that’s the biggest problem. If you close down the flanks so that they can’t cross the balls, there’s not much. [If] they can’t score from set-pieces, if you look at their goals from open play, it’s just a handful.”

Igesund on Coaching Pirates & Sundowns

Few coaches in the league have a resume like former Orlando Pirates & Mamelodi Sundowns mentor Gordon Igesund. His experience is particularly unique as he remains the only coach to win the PSL four times, with four different teams, having done so with Manning Rangers, Santos, Pirates & Sundowns. Joining the Carwash podcast as a guest host, Igesund discussed the difficulties of coaching a Big Three team, stating “Fantastic, fantastic [experience] to coach those teams, but a lot of pressure”.

He continues “It’s because the expectations are so high. At Sundowns, you can go buy any player you want to buy, and go win a championship, you’re not short of anything. At Pirates it’s the same thing, the supporters only want success and it’s very difficult and I think it’s more important to know there, that you’ve got to man-manage the players a lot more than coaching. And the biggest job managing those teams is managing the players who aren’t playing”.

Sundowns ‘B’ Team Could Win The League

With the return of the PSL being approved by Sports & Recreation Minister Nathi Mthethwa, the title race between Kaizer Chiefs & Mamelodi Sundowns is on everyone’s mind. Amakhosi lead the premiership standings with 48 points, 4 ahead of Masandawana who have a game in hand. The health & fitness levels of their squads will be under a microscope, and if European leagues are anything to go by, fans can expect to see injuries and fatigue when matches commence again. This means squad depth will play a major role in the PSL’s finale.

Former Mamelodi Sundowns & Ajax Cape Town goalkeeper Sean Roberts did not mince his words when explaining why Sundowns are a major threat to Chiefs in the titles race. Speaking on The Carwash podcast, Roberts stated “In terms of depth, in terms of quality that you’ve got on the bench, Sundowns ‘B’ team could easily win the PSL as well. I’d be very disappointed to see Chiefs throw it away after all the hard work they’ve done but in terms of depth, without a doubt Sundowns [could win].”

What Would You Do If Kaizer Chiefs Came Calling? - The Carwash

Will Chiefs’ Transfer Targets Wait? The Carwash Crew Debates.

Back in February, Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs were banned for two transfer window periods as punishment for their allegedly unlawful signing of Madagascar international Andriamirado "Dax" Andrianarimanana in 2018. The ruling means that Amakhosi are unable to sign new players until June 2021. While Chiefs planned to appeal the ruling, this process was delayed by the global coronavirus pandemic, and the new date for their appeal proceedings is set for after the current transfer window in September.

If this ruling stands, any current Chiefs targets would have to wait until September for Amakhosi to make their appeal, which would potentially allow them to sign in January 2021. In the latest episode of The Carwash, former Orlando Pirates star Teko Modise debates whether players would be willing to wait that long for the opportunity. “Of course it’s a big risk for players, but it’s also an opportunity that comes once in a lifetime. But I think those who will benefit with this are the ones with their own clearances in hand waiting for Kaizer Chiefs”, he stated on SL Radio.

Former Ajax Cape Town goalkeeper Sean Roberts added “If [the ban] does get lifted, and I have a sneaky suspicion it will, and the players are still in demand then they’re cashing in you know? But it’s a massive risk, what do you do? Do you say no to another club just on the hope that a ban doesn’t get lifted? It’s a tough one, I wouldn’t like to be in their shoes”.

Teko on Benni’s 2010 snub... - The Carwash

As South Africa celebrates 10 years since the FIFA World Cup was hosted in Mzansi, former Bafana Bafana star Teko Modise dishes on his experience at the camp and how the team reacted to Benni McCarthy’s infamous snub from the final squad. This comes after Benni McCarthy’s candid interview with the SA Football Journalists Association (Safja) in which he revealed the motive behind his 2010 FIFA World Cup snub

“Yes, it was heartbreaking, the fact that Benni wasn’t there, because we knew what he would bring, especially to us the younger ones,” Modise said on The Carwash Podcast. “I don’t remember losing a game with Benni on the pitch, for the national team”, he continued, “I don’t think Benni was given that fair chance”.

Does Gavin Hunt Want To Coach Kaizer Chiefs?- The Carwash

According to reports, Kaizer Chief’s interest in Gavin Hunt remains despite the Bidvest Wits coach stating that he would prefer not to work for a Big 3 team. Rumours surrounding Amakhosi mentor Ernst Middendorp’s have persisted, and it has been suggested that Middendorp could leave even if Chiefs win the Absa Premiership title.

During a recent online press conference which Gavin Hunt gave to the South African Football Journalist's Association, he seemed to categorically deny any rumours linking him with a move away from The Students. While discussing a meeting which he had with an unnamed chairman, Hunt stated “I said, 'Mr Chairman, there's only one problem here, you've got four to five bosses here, I'm the boss'". Despite this, Amakhosi’s interest hasn’t wavered.

Teko: What Orlando Pirates needs... The Carwash

Former Buccaneers star Teko Modise gives his thoughts on what the team needs in order to end their 6-year trophy drought. “For Orlando Pirates, the reality is they need additions into the team, yes they have a good squad but they need maybe three or four additions not merely based on talent, but also the leadership”, he told SL Radio.

Despite a large squad overhaul during the last transfer window, which saw 15 players leave the team while 11 new signings were made, Orlando Pirates are heavily linked with the likes of Thulani Hlatshwayo, Richard Ofori & Bradley Grobler. Modise describes these potential signings as necessary to the side’s style of play. He adds, “For those who believe in structural football, they’ll tell you that the spine of the team is important, like the striker, the central midfield, a centre back or a goalie”.

The two-time PSL Footballer Of The Year winner also comments on whether he believes that Pirates supporters will be patient next season, stating “If Chiefs win the league this time around, they’ll expect [Pirates] to win it next season”.
