Richards: Criticism Not Fair To Chiefs

Kaizer Chiefs' request for postponement of their December fixtures has received mixed reactions from the football fraternity.

The Glamour Boys made a request to the Premier Soccer League to postpone some of the club's fixtures due to a Covid-19 outbreak at Naturena Village. 

Amakhosi failed to honour the club's fixture against Cape Town City this past weekend, with Chiefs recently confirming via its social media channels, that the club is unable to travel for the match against Golden Arrows at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Wednesday 8 December. 

There were concerns about the expectation of special treatment, while retired defender Rene Richards is of the opinion that the health of players and staff should be a priority. 

"I don't think it's special treatment. This Covid is real and (it is) taking a risk with lives," Richards told the Siya crew. 

"Definitely not a good thing to think they want special treatment. Chiefs would not have played; I mean they were responsible and had to take precautions. So, they can't be criticized for taking precautions." 

Despite Chiefs announcing that the club is unable to honour the fixture against Arrows, the KZN-based side have confirmed that they are going ahead as normal and have been in camp in preparation for the clash.

The PSL remains mum on the issue.
