Bobby’s Suspension: ‘This Is A Family Issue’

The actions of Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung, which led to his suspension, have been condemned in the fraternity.

Earlier today (Tuesday), Chiefs confirmed that Motaung has been suspended by the club for breaking lockdown rules.

The decision to suspend Motaung was reached after videos of him were seen circulating on social media ‘taking part in festivities during what looks like the lockdown period’ as confirmed by the Soweto giants on their official website.

With Amakhosi preparing for the resumption of their title-chasing campaign, the log leaders confirmed that Motaung ‘is not allowed to accompany the team to any training session or scheduled matches’ as the team is preparing for next Wednesday’s match against Bidvest Wits.

“What I can say is that this is the family issue, because don’t forget that Bobby Motaung is the son of Kaizer Motaung. But if you talk about a normal football manager like myself, if I was working for the club, this is a big issue. A manager must be a good example to everybody in camp. If you have a leader of the group partying it is a big issue. It’s a very big issue,” experienced football administrator Peter Koutroulis said.

“I have known Bobby for many years and I respect him. He is a very good person and is experienced in what he does in his job. I can’t comment further about Bobby because he is a family member. But if it was somebody else – like Peter Koutroulis and doing those things – if I was the club I would stop him from the spot. What example is he giving to the technical team, players and the other staff? I must be an example and be the first person to adhere to the rules. I’m the one who should be checking each and every 30 minutes if everything is alright as a football manager and a leader of the group,” Koutroulis told the Siya crew.

Chiefs confirmed that Motaung is suspended up to, and including 31 August 2020.
