Radebe understands why Amakhosi supporters are frustrated by the club's lack of silverware in the last two seasons

Legendary Kaizer Chiefs defender Lucas Radebe says his former side are failing to sign quality players like Bidvest Wits and Mamelodi Sundowns.

“If teams like Bidvest Wits and Mamelodi Sundowns can get better players than Chiefs, then there’s definitely something wrong (happening at Chiefs). But then again, congratulations to Wits for winning the League title. They have been consistent enough in getting good results and they truly deserve it,” Radebe told IOL.

“To don that Chiefs jersey is not easy. And to follow into the footsteps of players who wore it before and try to produce the type of results and trophies they were able to produce during their playing days, it’s even tougher,” he explained.

“(This current generation of players) really need to sweat blood and tears and wear that jersey with pride each time they take to the field of play. They’ve been lacking those qualities for the past two seasons,” Radebe said.

Amakhosi have failed to win a major trophy since coach Steve Komphela took over prior to the 2015/16 season.

“It is disappointing for a big team, such as Chiefs to have finished this season without having won a single (trophy) really,” Radebe said.

“I understand the frustration from the fans because this is a team that is used to producing some form of silverware in every single campaign they get to participate in.

“It’s quite evident that there’s a lot that’s lacking here at the club,” Radebe concluded.
