Ranga Chivaviro, a promising new signing for the Kaizer Chiefs, has seen minimal field time since his arrival. Ntseki recently used Chivaviro as a substitute in the Chiefs’ MTN8 quarterfinal triumph over Cape Town City.
Chivaviro’s toughness and ability to handle and flick the ball were important against the opponents’ deep defending, according to Ntseki. The team’s strategy was to stay fresh and recover before the game. To penetrate the defense, the early strategy emphasized speed and quality.
During the match, City’s coach, Eric Tinkler, introduced Taariq Fielies, prompting Ntseki to rearrange his lineup. Ranga and Saile were brought in to reinforce the defense, with Ashley du Preez moving to the left.
Despite Ashley’s difficulties near the finish, Ntseki praised his perseverance and self-assurance. Ntseki’s selection as Chiefs coach drew a lot of interest, especially from the club’s fans. Despite his doubts at first, Ntseki addressed his role and tactics, displaying his belief in the team’s strategy.
