Chiefs’ no-trophy run weighs heavily on Dolly’s shoulders



Kaizer Chiefs star Keagan Dolly has admitted she sometimes wonders if she’s doing enough to help the team curb their trophy-less run.

Amakhosi is now in his eighth season without winning anything and the only thing they can chase this season is a second place to qualify for the Caf Champions League next season.

However, this would only be a consolation for the fans who have become the laughing stock of local football.

“Of course I came here knowing that the Chiefs are a great club, in South Africa and on the African continent. I grew up supporting the club and watching the likes of coach (Arthur Zwane) win trophies and win league titles, “says Dolly.

“Knowing the history of the club, I knew there was a high chance of winning and challenging all the trophies. We haven’t won anything this season. It is always difficult for me to accept it, due to the caliber of the players we have and the team we have.

“Sometimes you sit back, think and ask yourself ‘am I doing enough as a player?’ But in the end it’s not a one man show, it’s a team, ”he says.

Dolly contributed eight goals to the Chiefs DStv Premiership campaign in her first season with Naturena’s Glamor Boys.

“The goal I scored against (Marumo) Gallants this week was deflected by Khama (Billiat) and hit the mark. Sometimes you have to make your own luck. For me personally I don’t look at the statistics, if I have scored or if I have seen a goal, for me it is a question of the team’s performance.

“If the team is doing well I always say that people will stand out. First it’s about the team, then later I’ll start trying to improve myself. “

Dolly hopes to spoil the celebrations for her former team, the Mamelodi Sundowns, when they meet at FNB Stadium on Sunday night. The Sundowns are already celebrating their 11th league title – the fifth in a row – and all remaining games are now just a dead tire with the exception of the Nedbank Cup final.
