Former Baroka FC coach Kgoloko Thobejane believes he can turn Kaizer Chiefs into champions again.

The 49-year-old claims that he can do better than Giovanni Solinas and Ernst Middendorp combined .

“I can build Chiefs to be a very strong team. The other clubs will start to respect us from that day,” Thobejane told The Sowetan. “I can coach it at any time and deliver the results. I can do better than [Giovanni] Solinas and Ernst Middendorp combined.”

“Chiefs is a big team why should they go into a game against Galaxy and worry too much about the opponent?

“Galaxy was not worried about marking Chiefs. They were concerned about keeping the ball and to attack,” he added.

Following Chiefs’ disappointing finish to the season and the Nedbank Cup loss to National First Division side TS Galaxy, Thobejane went reminded football fans that “football will kill you.”

“I told them this football will kill you. Football goes together with death. It’s a spiritual death because everybody wants to win but it’s not possible for everyone to win.

“Football has no therefore. And it will continue killing people.”
