Khan In Bobby’s Defence About Chiefs ‘Regress’

Former Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach, Farouk Khan, has come out in the defence of the club’s Football Manager Bobby Motaung over some disappointments in recent years.

Over the years, Motaung has had a love-hate relationship with some sections of the Chiefs supporters about certain important issues, including the team’s results and signing of players.

However, Khan says it would be unfair for people to point fingers at an individual about their grievances about the team as the running of a professional club is a collective for different people as per their specific roles.

“It’s difficult to put your finger on it and say this is the actual reason (for disappointing results in the league), because I often hear people blame Bobby to say he is the reason. It’s a little bit unfair because I think in fairness Kaizer Chiefs is not a one man show. As much as he is the football manager, there are other people around him,” said Khan.

“For example, if you look at scouting, he is not in the scouting department, he is the football manager, so he’s got people to do that for him. He’s not a technical staff and he’s got people doing that for him. So, overall, I think it’s a combination of everybody that has been involved there to take some blame for the fact that the team has regressed. Maybe lack of hindsight, maybe lack of proper planning, there’s many factors. But I want to go on record saying categorically that it’s very unfair to blame Bobby for what has happened. There’s no club that will fail based on one person, it’s a collective,” the coach told the Siya crew.
