“We try by all means to motivate the boys to keep the momentum after a win,” said Arthur Zwane ahead of their tantalizing Multichoice Diski Challenge match on Sunday. “Our focus remains the development of these boys. We constantly remind them that football is short term and keeping focus must be uppermost in their minds.”
Kaizer Chiefs Reserves will on Sunday, 18 August host Highlands Park Reserves in their second MDC match of the season. Chiefs walloped Arrows 4-1 in their first match.
“Performance is key to future results,” said Zwane. “We teach the boys to be happy upon introspection and also when they get feedback of a good performance.”
“At the Development level it is all about repetition,” said Zwane. “We have few boys coming from the junior teams, for example Tshepo Myeni and Khumbulani Ncube from U19. So far they are settling in very well in the Reserve Team.”
The match is taking place at Dobsonville Stadium, in Soweto.
“It is for the newly promoted players to adapt because we endeavor to keep the formation consistent from our U13,” said Zwane. “We are still at the early stages after one game. We are not checking much of what the opponents are doing. We focus on our strengths going into every game.”
It will be difficult for Highlands Park to contain us, “We use three formations in one game,” said Zwane, “we are unpredictable. We focus on our strengths and that’s what we will do throughout this season,”
