Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach Arthur Zwane says the entire club are looking forward to the start of the new season as they hope to redevelop their "culture of winning".

Amakhosi ended last season without any silverware, the first time they have done so in a decade, leaving the Naturena faithful hungry for success in the 2012/13 PSL campaign.

"A lot of work has been done behind the scenes and on the training field in preparation of the incoming season," Zwane told the club's official website.

"The mentality of the players is positive and the fans should embrace themselves for an exciting season."

Chiefs begin their season with a massive test when they take on Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 on Sunday, but Zwane is confident the Glamour Boys can come out of the tie with a positive result.

"The potential is there for all to see," he added. "The spirit in the team has not been as high in a long time. These days you see the players on field fighting for each other and being prepared to put their bodies on the line for one another.

"The coach has also brought a sense of stability in the team and you can see this with the structure and movements of players on the pitch. There is communication at the back. Our transition play has improved tremendously.

"During the Gauteng Challenge and Carling Black Label Cup bar that one mistake deep in the injury time the team showed what they can achieve this season under the tutelage of Stuart Baxter."
