Kaizer Chiefs' dismal form this season might not see them win any silverware, but one of the club's former strikers has called for patience with coach Gavin Hunt.
So much has been said about Chiefs and their struggles in the 2020/21 campaign, in which injuries, suspensions, costly individual errors and ultimately inconsistency has plagued Chiefs’ campaign.
Despite all the club’s struggles this campaign, Stanton Lewis, who turned out for Chiefs in the 2011/12 season on a loan deal from Ajax Cape Town, has called for patience with the 56-year-old amid talk that his future at the club hangs in the balance.
“Patience is key and I think Gavin needs time, he has a new technical team, well he has ‘Sheppy’ (Dillon Sheppard) there and the other coaches that is with him. I think that Gavin still needs to learn the culture of that club. Its not easy being at a big club but I think what hampered a lot of Gavin’s plans was the ban to sign players. I think if he got what he wanted at the club in terms of the type of players, I think we would be talking a different story now,” Lewis told the Siya crew.
In addition, the 33-year-old, who heads up his own academy in Johannesburg has issued some advice to the current Chiefs players who could be on heir way out of the club at the end of the season.
“At the moment it’s disappointing from Chiefs players. I think when you are such a big club, and I know that the players are trying their best, but for me, honestly, they need to just win the rest of their games and play as well as they can, so they are not released next season and then from next season you can build, because I don’t see them achieving anything this year,” he added.
