Kaizer Chiefs football manager, Bobby Motaung, needs to be assisted with some of his duties at the club, according to the team’s former midfielder Junior Khanye.
Following another disappointing season for Amakhosi during the 2018/19 Absa Premiership campaign, the club issued a statement stating that this past season has been ‘unacceptable’ as the club fell short of the standards set, and that changes will be made.
“This past season has been an unacceptable one in which we have fallen well short of the standards we set for ourselves. We have let ourselves down and we know we have bitterly disappointed and failed to meet the expectations of our supporters and stakeholders. It has been four barren seasons now and as Kaizer Chiefs management we will do all we possibly can to remedy the situation and to act decisively.
“We are using this off-season to implement the changes and to map the way forward with a new approach for next season, based on the lessons learnt. The rebuilding process for the 2019/20 season is already underway and all the necessary actions will be taken to ensure we restore this iconic institution to where it rightfully belongs – at the summit of South African football.
“We are bolstering the technical team, the playing personnel and strengthening the football department in preparation for the new season. The club has recently gone through some restructuring and has appointed new members to the board of directors. The board will play a critical role in our way forward,” the club said in their statement, in part.
In weighing in on some of the changes he feels should take place, Khanye believes that having someone to help the football manager in signing players for the team would assist the club in their rebuilding process.
“I’m sorry for what I am going to say, I believe that Bobby needs someone to assist him in managing the club. He needs someone to help him specifically on the role of signing players. I am saying this as advice and in a professional way,” said Khanye.
As reported by the Siya crew, Chiefs are expected to regroup on June 26 to begin their pre-season preparations.
