Goal spoke to the former Chiefs star about the club's new signings ahead of the 2017/18 campaign

Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Patrick Mayo is unhappy with the club's new signings Teenage Hadebe, Philani Zulu and Bhongolwethu Jayiya.

“I’m not happy with the players they have signed because they have not replaced those quality players that left for SuperSport (United),” Mayo told Goal.

“Instead, they have replaced them with young players, who are inexperienced,” he said.

Having played for both clubs, Mayo says they still need to replace the players that left for United one after the other in recent times.

 “It’s time for them to they beef up the squad because they let too many players leave the club at the wrong time. So if you are going to allow players like (Reneilwe) Yeye Letsholonyane and (Kingston) Nkhatha to leave, you need to replace them with other quality players because all of them are playing now at SuperSport,” he added.

“In order for Chiefs to win the league again, they will have to replace those players with other quality players,” Mayo continued.

 Zimbabwean-born defender Hadebe has not impressed Mayo and the retired player backs the pairing of Eric Mathoho and Lorenzo Gordinho in the central defence.

“He still needs to grow. He is still young and inexperienced to handle the pressure at the back. I would absolutely still prefer Mathoho and Gordinho partnership over him,” Mayo concluded.
