Lebogang Manyama has blamed individualism as the causative agent hampering the Amakhosi from lifting silverware in recent times.

Although winning a record 53 major domestic trophies since the club was formed 50 years ago by then national star Kaizer Motaung, the Soweto-based club have been struggling to win trophies.

“Our squad was a collection of talented footballers, but we were not united,” Lebogang Manyama told AFP.

“This season we are working for each other and that is why we are at the top of the table. Talent is essential if you want to succeed, but so is teamwork.”

Kaizer Chiefs are looking forward to breaking their trophy drought this season. The Amakhosi lies atop the Premier Soccer League table with 48 points with eight fixtures to go.

Mamelodi Sundowns with a match in hand have 44 points [second position] and are the most likely team to challenge Kaizer Chiefs for the richest African league title with a R15 million on board for grabs.

The PSL will resume tomorrow, August 11 with a mouthwatering clash between Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates after 148-day hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Amakhosi will have their bite on Wednesday as they face Bidvest Wits.
