New Kaizer Chiefs signing Thatayaone Ditlhokwe has stated that he is not bothered by the recent remarks made by Arthur Zwane, who is the head coach.
Zwane brought up the recurring theme of players not having the right mentality to be successful at Amakhosi once again after the team finished the season in fourth place, which was the final day of the season.
In an extensive variety of topics, he talked about how rival clubs in the DStv Premiership make it difficult for Chiefs to secure their most desirable targets. He also discussed the way certain players rise to the occasion to star against them but fail to shine when signed for the Soweto Giants because of the added pressure that comes with the enormous institution and demands from the largest fan base in Mzansi.
As he discussed his preparedness for the move after turning into one of the leading defenders at SuperSport United ahead of his free transfer, the Botswana captain stated, “I don’t think there is any pressure about that statement [Zwane made], I don’t think of it.” Zwane had made the statement while discussing the Botswana captain’s readiness for the move.
“As a player, ever since I was in Botswana, my goal has been to leave Botswana and play in South Africa. After that, I plan to give my absolute best effort in South Africa in order to play professionally somewhere. My objective at this point is to keep improving with each and every game and to bring home prizes. That is one of my primary goals.”
When asked what kind of legacy he wants to leave as an ambassador for Botswanan football, he responded that he needs to win trophies at the highest level in order to fulfill that role.
“I need to win trophies, I must compete in continental football like CAF Champions League, so that is what I have been looking forward to as a player and what I am making an effort [get closer to] each and every training session, each and every game,” he continued.
“I need to evolve as a player in order to win such things because you don’t win them just for the sake of winning; you need to put in additional work in order to win these types of trophies,” he said. “It’s not just about winning.
“[With Botswana bidding for AFCON], it is going to be an excellent chance for Botswana players, and for us to take part in AFCON due to the fact that it offers exposure and opportunity for players to earn moves out of the country and have the opportunity to see greener pastures, to come back, support their families, and obtain experience that they can come back and pass onto a new generation [of footballers].”
