Middendorp still assessing market options

Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp refused to be drawn on any speculation regarding possible business in the current transfer window, but admitted they are discussing plans.

With the transfer window reopening this week, many PSL clubs are expected to strengthen and deepen their squads for the second half of the season as things begin to hot up.

Amakhosi are currently nine points adrift of Absa Premiership leaders Bidvest Wits, having amassed only 21 points from 15 games thus far, and also face challenges outside of the country’s borders.

History beckons for the club as a two-legged test against Zambian giants Zesco United stands between them and their first qualification to the CAF Confederation Cup group stages, while the Nedbank Cup also presents another opportunity for Chiefs to end their trophy drought spanning three-and-a-half years.

However, with Middendorp having returned to the helm only a month ago, the German tactician is tight-lipped over any possible activity in the market and says they will first assess their situation further before identifying any transfer requirements.

“I’m used to saying it, it’s always something, first of all, to assess your own options you have and secondly, of course, what is the market really giving or offering you,” said Middendorp.

“That’s the next question and I think both has to be done. We have this recruitment, assessment and scouting department – we have people here inside the club doing this. It’s good, we meet, and we talk every day.”
