‘Too early to judge us,’ says Chiefs’ new defender Dithlokwe

‘We must all work together as a unit. It is not the time for pointing fingers. If we win, we win together and if we lose, we lose together,’ says Dithlokwe.

Thatayaone Dithlokwe’s initiation into Kaizer Chiefs has been a bit of a bumpy ride, with the team struggling to find their rhythm and cohesion on the field.

Despite the rough patch, Dithlokwe emphasises that this phase shouldn’t be the yardstick for judging their abilities.

“I think there’s no need for us to judge ourselves whether we are good or bad players,” says Ditlhokwe, reflecting on their journey. 

“Where we were coming from, we were obviously excelling,” Ditlhokwe said.

“So why should we judge ourselves now? Even where we come from, we once faced the situation that we are facing now.” 

He advocates for a deep dive into resilience and concentration, the kind that fuels results. In football, it’s all about the collective effort, like a finely tuned orchestra playing in harmony.

Addressing the considerable gap that log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns have already built in the DStv Premiership, Dithlokwe outlines a pragmatic approach. 

“It’s about digging deep and being focused and then the results will come. Football is a collective sport. 

“We must all work together as a unit. It is not the time for pointing fingers. If we win, we win together and if we lose, we lose together.”

Sure, Chiefs might currently be trailing Sundowns by a formidable 14 points, but they do have two games in hand as well. 

Dithlokwe believes Chiefs will gel soon

Dithlokwe remains a beacon of hope and determination, saying, “Obviously, anything is possible in life as long as God is alive and you are pushing and determined to achieve any goal that you want to at the end of the season. 

“We believe we still have a good chance to fight for anything that’s there,” added Dithlokwe during the club’s open media day this week.

Coming off the disheartening 1-0 loss to TS Galaxy, which sparked fan unrest and calls for changes in the technical setup, Chiefs are gearing up to face AmaZulu next.
