Will some please try and remedy the situation at the once 'Glamour Boys' of Phefeni as Kaizer Chiefs are renowned for.
Once because, in the history of football Chiefs has not lost four times consecutively. Yes, I’m hurt because I used to play for the junior side from then what was called Colts under 19, and I can’t stomach seeing this humiliation, asseblief tog!
A poor run of form has seen AmaKhosi being knocked out of the Nedbank Cup by Orlando Pirates, then losing to Platinum Stars in the Absa Premiership.
That was followed by a first round, first leg CAF Champions League home defeat to ASEC Mimosa, before falling to Cosmos.
Chiefs are in fourth spot on the standings, 13 points behind pace-setters Mamelodi Sundowns, who have played one game less.
During post match interview on SuperSport, one couldn’t help but see tears in coach Steve Komphela’s eyes though, he tried hard to contain that from dripping. Sad episode that football can turn out to be.
In true patriotic gesture the players ‘protected’ Komphela as fans bayed for his blood after the Cosmos game, as they left the pitch.
Yes, as things stand AmaKhosi will not defend the league (thanks to log leaders Sundowns) and bag any silverware this season, the first to happen at Naturena.
These are tryin’ times for the black and gold…
What’s next: back to the basics coach and motivate the players, they all need that. Amen!
In tonights’ epic clashes on form Bucs visit Wits at Bidvest Wits Stadium.
Wits are breathing heavily on the neck of log leaders and potential PSL winners Sundowns, and as thing stand the Students, are focused thanks to the leadership of no-nonsense Gavin Hunt, whose appointment as coach has transformed the team into a formidable, to -go- to outfit.
Bucs, it seems have regained their form and anything can happen tonight. Now that the team is back in the top eight brackets, players’ winning mentality has been regained at the Buccaneers.
Another much awaited clash is between Downs against struggling Bloemfontein Celtic at Lucas Moripe Stadium. The game kicks off at 19:30.
In football one cannot pre-empt the outcome of the game but hosts should be home and dry, if such things do exist.
Pitso Mosimane wouldn’t want anything but a win to stamp his authority at the top of the log, whereas his counterpart Serame Letsoaka (his name meaning cold) could find himself out in cold, should they not produce the intended results.
