Amakhosi coach Ted Dumitru has said that he believes that the Kaizer Chiefs players have been restricted in the past from expressing themselves by the club's previous coaches.
The Sunday Times reported that the Amakhosi mentor was not happy with the coaching techniques which former Chief's managers Paul Dolezar and Muhsin Ertugral employed during their spells at the club.
"I'm halfway though correcting a way of thinking that was forced on them by the two previous coaches," said Dumitru.
The Glamour Boys have not won the league title in 11 years and Dumitru, who is looking to help restore the glory days to the Soweto club, feels that his predecessors have used negative tactics in the past.
"When I came the team had only one strategy to win a match, which was to wait for the opposition to make a mistake."
Dumitru says that the league title is his main goal for the season, but he has not started to put that into the minds of the players, as he fears placing them under unnecessary pressure.
"It would be very dangerous to tell them to concentrate only on winning the league. We will approach each game and every game with one idea in mind, to win by all means."
The Romanian-born coach does not want to have players in his squad who only play in one position, but is rather looking to have multifunctional players who will be able to change positions at any given time, which will give his team more depth.
"Right now I have about four or five players who do this roaming around. The Pirates players will tell you that they wanted to mark Jabu Pule out of the game but they couldn't find him," said Dumitru, who wants to have ten of the so-called multifunctional players in his team.
Pule, Moshoeu, Patrick Mayo, Stanton Fredericks, Sibusiso Dlamini and Thabo Mooki are the players that can fill various positions.
The Chiefs manager has received the backing of the hard-to-please Chiefs fans with the exciting brand of football his team are dishing out, and hopes to repay their confidence in them by winning the Castle Premiership.
"It will give me a huge amount of satisfaction if I win the league with Chiefs, but, more importantly, I would have pleased the fans," said Dumitru, who has a two year contract with the Glamour Boys.
