Kaizer Chiefs star Keagan Dolly believes that the club are not very far off providing a challenge to Mamelodi Sundowns as he highlighted an aspect of their game which he believes they need to improve on.
The Soweto giants will face the recently crowned DStv Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns at FNB Stadium on Sunday with the Glamour Boys still desperate for points in the hunt for second place.
Speaking in the build-up to the clash former Downs star Dolly, who won two league titles in his time at Chloorkop, revealed his belief that Chiefs aren’t far off challenging for the league title but admitted they need to become more of a unit first.
“I think we’re not very far off challenging for the league. We have a great bunch of players, especially our youngsters coming from the development. I think once we just start understanding the fact that sometimes best football won’t win us games we will challenge for the league title,” Dolly said yesterday.
“Sometimes we have to fight as a team and be a unit on the field. Sometimes the tactics won’t come the way we trained or planned and it’s for us, as players on the field, to see that and fix it on the field. We can’t wait for the coach at halftime to tell us, we need to sort it out on the field.”
Dolly has netted eight goals this season, his most in a single season since he turned professional. The Chiefs man insists he doesn’t pay attention to individual accolades as he puts the team first.
“Since I started playing football, it’s never [been] about me. As long as the team is doing well and getting results I am happy. I don’t look at the stats, for me it’s about the team’s performance. I always say if the teams does well, the individuals will standout but personally I don’t look at all these things of stats,” said Dolly.
