CAPE TOWN – Former Kaizer Chiefs star Mark Williams believes the club need to sign a marquee striker in the mould of a Lionel Messi, Didier Drogba and Christiano Ronaldo. Kaizer Chiefs have struggled to find the back of the net this season, with their leading scorer Gustavo Paez on three goals in the Premiership.
Williams takes the view that finding a prolific marksman is going to be key to the club’s chances in the January transfer window. “A top team like Kaizer Chiefs- soccer is all about scoring goals, people shouldn’t talk about good football. They will say they played good football, but they didn’t put the ball in the net. They will say they had plenty of opportunities, but they didn’t score” Williams said.
Williams added: “So, they need strikers, if they can’t get strikers- call me to their camp and tell me, ‘Mr Williams come coach our strikers to be in the kitchen’. I think they should try to get Drogba if they can try to get Ronaldo or Messi- don’t laugh, that is what they need because there is nothing in South Africa. I am being honest.”
“If there is a striker that needs to prove me wrong, it will be a pleasure to see if he can score week in and week out.”
Chiefs will face Platinum Stars on Saturday at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium. Kick-off is at 15:30.
