This is because the once glamour outfit Kaizer Chiefs, are not hitting the right cord and last night, this proved why the fans are now calling for head coach Steve Komphela to relinquish the post.
After a 1-all dull draw against the super-charged Platinum Stars in the PSL league encounter, AmaKhosi really needs a miracle to happen, if that’s the case.
Despite controversy on the goal-it did not cross the line- Chiefs should have punished their opponents but Dololo…
The absence of S’phiwe “Shabba” Tshabalala due to injury has compounded matters, stru!
And seeing the body posture and grumpy faces of both chairman Kaizer Motaung and son Bobby after the game, one cannot fathom what was going through their minds or went down in the dressing room. I pray those walls would have ears…
Former PSL champs have won just one of their last 13 league games played since February and still look far from convincing.
Can’t blame the fans, they’ve had it up to here. Simply ‘cos their team is synonymous for winning –be it good performance or not- finish & klaar!
Being tagged ‘Cup Specialists’ is no small feat, and once ‘Glamour Boys’ of Phefeni knew that by hook or crook (borrowing from “Chincha Guluva” himself) they had to win, alas not lately.
What’s next, two things must happen: either Komphela begins winning games or bites the dust.
Ok, declaration time though under-duress: I once played for what was then Chiefs Colt’s or under 19s, with the likes of Tshepo Molatedi, Thabo “Tsikitsiki” Mooki, the Manyathi brothers, and proudly coached and mentored by no-nonsense Ryder Mofokeng and the late bra (Pro) Khumalo, Doctor’s father -as he was called by everyone (May His Soul rest eternally in Peace).
That Gold and Black jersey comes with a lot of history, pride and sacrifices (lives were lost) and everyone at the club should be aware of this.
Khosi alipheli umoya but as things stand, its either highway or no-way for Khosi!
Yes, Komphela and Bafana coach Shakes Mashaba are in the same doldrums. Who will come out tops remain to be seen?
