Khanye's Huge Disappointment, Reflects On Chiefs’ Loss Against Baroka

Junior Khanye has pointed out at what he thinks were the mistakes that led to Kaizer Chiefs’ loss against Baroka FC at the weekend.

Following their 1-0 loss to Bakgaga at FNB Stadium on Saturday, Amakhosi’s title hopes suffered a major blow as the team remained seventh on the Absa Premiership log, eight points behind log leaders Orlando Pirates, with only five matches remaining for their campaign.

Chiefs head coach, Ernst Middendorp, was visibly disappointed after the match on Saturday as he questioned the attitude of his players. Speaking to the Siya crew, Khanye also felt disappointed about his former club as he questioned some of the decisions. 

“Let’s be honest with each other, be realistic and straightforward, Chiefs won’t win any trophy this season. That’s the club I regard as my home, which I love very much, but I have to be truthful and say things the way they are when I talk about them,” Khanye told the Siya crew.

“Chiefs didn’t deserve to win against Baroka. I still feel that some of the players at Chiefs are being played out of position. I don’t understand why Ramahlwe Mphahlele is being played on the wing sometimes, while Pule Ekstein is being played in a deeper role in midfield.

“Ekstein shouldn’t be made to defend much, because that is limiting his attacking prowess. The boy was quiet on Saturday, after a wonderful game he had against Cape Town City from the previous match. For me, it was him and Dumisani Zuma who won Chiefs the match against Cape Town City and I didn’t understand why Zuma was put on the bench against Baroka. Why? Chiefs need a winger who is mobile. 

“Chiefs didn’t attack much and Baroka were superior to them. The coach has been talking about the league but Chiefs didn’t play like a team that wanted to win the league against Baroka. They didn’t create many scoring chances and Bernard Parker was struggling to get enough supply,” said the former Amakhosi midfielder.
