Daniel Kabwe to set Silver Strikers targets
Silver Strikers Coach, Daniel Kabwe, has said he will give players targets to ensure that the club achieves its aim in the forthcoming season.
Kabwe was unveiled Monday at Silver Club House, just two weeks after he was appointed as the head coach, replacing Young Chimodzi Senior who retired from coaching.
The Zambian coach, who is a banker by profession, said despite being given targets by management, he has also given his players targets.
“The players themselves will be given targets for us to achieve the targets set by management. At the end of every five games, we will be looking at what we have achieved and see if we have met the targets,” Kabwe said.
Kabwe said he wants to turn Silver Stadium into a fortress next season to maximise their chances of winning the title.
“Our target is also to utilise home ground advantage. We have 15 league home games in a season so if we whip all the teams at home we will have a chance to win the league,” he said.
On the appointment of his backroom staff, the Zambian said he was ready to work with anyone.
“The board looked at the people who can fit in the style of Silver. We know we are professionals and we can work with anyone. We need to work as a team and take the team to the next level,” said Kabwe who was unveiled alongside his assistants Mac Donald Yobe and Mac Donald Mtetemera.
In his first week in charge of the training, Kabwe said he had noted that the striking force was one of the areas which require improvement.
Meanwhile, Silver yesterday also completed the signing of Blue Eagles striker, Foster Biton, following the departure of Khuda Muyaba to Polokwane City FC.
Silver Board Chairperson, Victor Madhlopa, said time has come for the club to do business unusual.
“Silver is in the right direction and we have trust that the coaches will take us to where we want. Gone are the days when teams were required to employ people who have played for the club,” Madhlopa said.
