Motaung Praises Wits, Singles Out Hunt & Klate

Kaizer Chiefs' Top Man Has Been Quick To Praise Bidvest Wits

By Soccer Laduma - May 19, 2017 10:00 AM
Kaizer Motaung showed his class this week as he offered his congratulations to Bidvest Wits following their first ever league title win on Wednesday night.
 
 
 
Gavin Hunt’s men brought a 96-year run without a title to an end as they beat Polokwane City 2-0, with Mamelodi Sundowns’ 2-2 draw with Maritzburg United sealing the Absa Premiership race.
 
Motaung, who has experienced many times what it feels like to lift the trophy, was quick to offer his compliments to everyone in Braamfontein, calling their achievement a ‘momentous occasion’.
 
He told Chiefs’ official website, “Congratulations to the Clever Boys. Well done. They fought a good fight from the beginning, leading to this historic achievement.
 
“This is indeed a momentous occasion in the history of the league and the club itself. It is a remarkable moment because Wits never won the league since their formation in 1921.
 
“Compliments to their Chairman, Brian Joffe and his management team for leading the Clever Boys to this immense glory. Coach Gavin Hunt and his technical team have done a marvellous job throughout the season to form Wits into a force to be reckoned with.”
 
Motaung went on to single out the Clever Boys’ head coach and veteran winger, Daine Klate, saying, “I also wish to congratulate Gavin for scooping his fourth league title. That’s a fantastic achievement. I also shouldn’t forget to mention Daine Klate for collecting his sixth league championship medal.
 
“We will receive Wits at our last game of the 2016/2017 season. We will be gracious hosts and honour the occasion with dignity.”
 
Meanwhile, Chiefs’ head coach also offered his congratulations earlier in the week, saying, “Congratulations to Wits. They have done well and Gavin Hunt deserves praise for his sterling job with his team.”

The embattled Amakhosi coach has been backed once again by a high-ranking club official Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung has backed coach Steve Komphela amidst growing pressure from the club’s faithful to give him the boot. “You can’t change coaches like that. How many years did it take for Gavin Hunt to be fighting to win the league (with Bidvest Wits)? It’s the same story with Pitso (Mosimane). “He got there (at Mamelodi Sundowns) when they were buying everyone. But he changed that. Chiefs took 47 years to be where it is today. It has never been about overnight success- we don’t want that,” Motaung told The Sowetan. Amakhosi have under Komphela's guidence experienced a second season without a major trophy. “We will be having workshops next week to review the season. But the idea that we can dispose a coach after he has worked hard to build a team over two years doesn’t apply to us. “Imagine if we fire him now and another coach comes in to ride on his hard work? The truth is Steve has been unfortunate. We have played well this season. How do you blame him for the last-minute goals we conceded in the latter part of the title race?” Motaung adumbrated. Motaung, who continues to bear the brunt of the club’s supporters also praised Komphela for introducing youngsters like Lorenzo Gordinho, Pule Ekstein and Ryan Moon," he added. “Steve has been brave enough to change the team and promote players who were not given a chance before. But sometimes out fans are not patient. They want results now,” Motaung concluded.

With the way things are going at home in Naturena, I see us praising and singling out other teams' coaches and players for the next ten years.
