Christian Saile feels he is adapting to life at Kaizer Chiefs

Kaizer Chiefs striker Christian Saile says he’s working hard to rediscover his goalscoring form.

The 24-year-old DR Congo attacker has three goals and one assist in 18 games in all competitions for Amakhosi this season.

He netted 19 goals and provided 12 as he helped former club Nchanga Rangers win their league title last term but has been unable to match that form with Chiefs.

In total, Saile has six goals and two assists in 34 games in all competitions.

He said on Times Live: “Obviously, the leagues are not the same. The PSL is a bit difficult — I needed a bit of time to adapt, and I feel like I’m getting there.

“I’m working hard to start scoring goals and getting the confidence.

“There’s a big difference in the way they play in South Africa and Zambia.

“In Zambia there’s a lot of running and here it’s more possessional football and you have to avail yourself properly [for the ball]. Over there sometimes they give you the ball to just score.”

Chiefs next play Richards Bay at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

“The game this weekend is an important one for us and our season,” added Saile. “It’s been good being with the team, and I’m enjoying myself at Kaizer Chiefs.”
