Silver Strikers Coach, Daniel Kabwe, has described the team’s players as average after assessing them for less than two weeks.
Kabwe took over from Young Chimodzi and has been challenged to win all trophies in the 2020 season.
The Zambian said he needs more quality players as most of the team’s stars were average.
“For the one week I have been with the players in training, I have observed that the team needs beefing up with quality players who are the best on the land. For this reason, we are still on the market.
“If you want to be the best, you must get the best. It is pleasing that management is ready to go for the best players, no matter the price. If there is a local player who is outstanding and we are interested and he fits in our plans, we are to go for him,” Kabwe said.
He said the club is expecting a lot from new signing Foster Bitoni who is capable of competing for the new season’s Golden Boot award.
Silver board of trustees Chairperson, Victor Madhlopa, said Kabwe was working with his backroom staff in identifying players of his choice.
Madhlopa said buying more players would help them achieve their targets in the new season.
“Indeed he talked about the players after last week’s training sessions. But look, the coach is only assessing the players. There are several players who are just trying their luck here. We are ready to sign any player recommended by the coach,” Madhlopa said.
One of the stars Silver wanted to sign in the current transfer window was Be Forward Wanderers hit man Babatunde Adepoju but the move did not materialise despite the Central Bankers’ offer of K10 million.
