Kaizer Chiefs recruits warned against booze and parties

Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Daniel Cardoso has passed on some advice for the new recruits at Naturena.

The Glamour Boys are closing in on their ninth signing in a recruiting spree that was brought on by the release of a further eight players.

For quite a few players this will mean a bump in salary and a move to the big city and Cardoso has warned the incoming class not to get blinded by the lights.

Kaizer Chiefs have seemingly tried to avoid signing bad boys or troublesome players but have found in the past that players can go astray in the Naturena pressure cooker.

“I would say they need to be focused and humble,” Cardoso advised.

“Just do what you need to do and focus on the football. Leave everything else out, the partying and going out a lot. Just focus on your football and you can have a great and long career. It’s a great club to be at.”

“I think the biggest downfall over the past seven years I was there… I have seen players brought in and let go within six months to a year [because they were not the right fit],” Cardoso told Marawa Sports Worldwide.

“Sometimes the quality of signings that come to Chiefs… you bring in players from the NFD [National First Division], you bring in free agents. I mean, they are passionate about playing but some players just want to earn a salary.

“And you can see it on the field. You can see who wants to play and how some players just arrive at training reeking of alcohol because they don’t care. I believe that was the biggest effect [problem] we had at Chiefs in the years that I was there.”
