Why Chiefs Boss Does Not Feel Comfortable ‘At Home’

Kaizer Chiefs head coach, Ernst Middendorp admitted to why he does not feel comfortable at Orlando Stadium.

The Soweto giants returned to Absa Premiership action with a ‘home’ clash against Bidvest Wits on Wednesday evening, which ended in a 1-1 draw despite their efforts to increase their lead at the top of the log.

Adding to the misfortune of not having their fans out in their numbers at the Stadium, Amakhosi are playing all their home fixtures at the home of their Soweto rivals - the Orlando Stadium.

“It is strange (laughs),” Middendorp told the media when asked about how he feels having to call Orlando Stadium home.

“Let me be honest, you look into it and I think everybody knows that being a rival of Orlando Pirates you have to face the faces of the heroes of Orlando Pirates, you go in and see it left and right, it is not really comfortable, it does not make you really feel at home, there is no doubt about it, it is quite a change."

Amakhosi have seven fixtures left for the remainder of the 2019/20 season and three of them will be played at home, which includes a monumental encounter against Mamelodi Sundowns later this month.
