Kaizer Chiefs captain Keagan Dolly has responded to the criticism of Doctor Khumalo after Amakhosi’s MTN8 exit at the hands of AmaZulu last Sunday.
Chiefs played to a goalless draw against Usuthu, in the second leg of the semifinal at Moses Mabidha Stadium on Sunday, following a 1-1 draw in the first leg at FNB Stadium at the start of this month.
Scrutiny on Chiefs’ stars and specifically the pressure on Dolly at the club has intensified, after the Soweto giants crashed out of the MTN8, as well as having the bad start to the season.
Khumalo had questioned some individual’s quality and the creativity, saying the club has no players who can stand up to win games, especially as far as comparing them with yesterday’s crop of players, including himself.
Speaking ahead of the well anticipated Soweto Derby, Dolly insisted that the players have been trying everything to turn things around, and thinks they will soon get what they are fighting for.
“I think with us, we control what we can control and that’s our emotions within the club as players, and our performances,” Dolly told the media on Thursday.
“I don’t think there’s any player who wants to go out on the field and not do well for the club. Throughout the season we have been doing work, but it’s a process, we’ve been building.
“We have got new players, here and there we had to change because of different opponents that we played, different tactics that we use, and I think once we get it right we’ll start winning again. I think we create enough chances and once we start scoring goals things will go our way again.”
