Chiefs Losses Suggest Crisis?

The first half of the Premier Soccer League saw Kaizer Chiefs dominate on all levels, as we ended the mid-term break on a high after going undefeated in the Absa Premiership. We played some of the most attractive football in the country, whilst most of the players in the first team looked to be peaking at the right time.

However, having lost four out of our last five fixtures, could we be facing a crisis at the club?

As a stark contrast to the first half of the campaign, the second half of the season saw us look a completely different outfit. What may have led to our poor showings was the sale of one of our most pivotal attacking components in Kingston Nkhatha.

The robust striker may have not been the sharpest in front of goal, but his energy and work rate is now missed upfront and we look rather blunt in attacking positions.

That should never be an excuse though, as the biggest club in South Africa… replacing Nkhatha and solving such a problem should have been done a long time ago in all honesty.

Also, the unity in the camp could be disrupted because of so many big name players being uncertain of their immediate futures. Leaving things such as contract renewals until the last minute could unsettle players.

In Europe, four losses in a space of five games would be a serious case, and the credibility of the managers would come under scrutiny.

It may be unfair to compare the PSL and Chiefs to a European league and club, but having such a record at this stage of the season is just not good enough for a club like Amakhosi.

Having said that, do you feel there is a crisis at the club?
