Kaizer Chiefs gives 20 players the boot

Kaizer Chiefs announced that it has released 20 players from the club.

According to SABC soccer analyst David Kekana, the 20 players are mostly substitutes who did not managed to impress management during their time on the field.

These were the players that were supposed to be substitutes, who were supposed to challenge the main guys that played - but failed to do so.

He says that fans must rather keep an eye on club trades, transfers and renewed contracts to see the direction that Kaizer Chiefs will take on to improve.
