The Chiefs fans have been urging the team and suggesting possible late additions for the team before the window closes.

Chief among these suggestions was Mamelodi Sundowns striker Kermit Erasmus, but Motaung says the tiny striker isn’t what they’re looking for.

“We have never chosen Kermit. How many players do we have who are similar to him? We work on what the coaches say they need, ”Motaung told Ukhozi FM on Thursday night.

He also revealed that they are happy with what they have right now and would not want to overload manager Arthur Zwane with too many new players at this stage.

“We have a team of young players and most of them are on the team and need to have a fair chance. We have players like Matlou who haven’t played much.

We have other players who haven’t played yet and we want the manager to work with them in the next (four) games and then let’s see where we get.

“We will review our squad and see where we need to reinforce in the next window. As for that, we’re relaxed because we’re done.

“Also, we wouldn’t want to have too many new players our manager is dealing with,” explained the veteran Chiefs manager.

Motaung also reiterated his support for Zwane saying it was better for the results to go against him now in the beginning and not later.

“It is better to start like this and go to the mat now. We don’t want to repeat what happened when we thought we had the championship in the bag and then lose it in the last 30 minutes …

“This has hurt everyone associated with the club and we never want it to happen again,” said the Chiefs official, who is also the eldest son of club boss Kaizer Motaung.
