Five Reasons Chiefs Called Off Their Awards?

Kaizer Chiefs Called Off Their Club Awards

By Soccer Laduma - May 18, 2018 12:54 PM
Kaizer Chiefs called off their end of season awards for the first time ever and we look at some of the reasons why this campaign was the straw that broke the camel's back at Naturena. 
 
Take a look through some of the reasons by clicking right above
 
The club’s chairman, Kaizer Motaung, confirmed this week that, for the first time ever, the club had called off their end of season awards after another trophyless season for the Amakhosi.
 
Speaking to the club’s website, Motaung said, “It has become customary for us to host a ceremony where the club thanks and rewards the players, technical team, staff and other individuals who have distinguished themselves over the course of the season. However, this season was marked by unusual events, one of which was seeing the club go a third year without lifting a major trophy.

“Our decision was influenced by our displeasure with the team’s performance and not being able to achieve objectives we set for ourselves. 
 
Aside from the fact that the club finished outside the Absa Premiership’s top two for the third year in a row and failed in all the cup competitions, they set some disappointing records for themselves in 2017/18. 
 
We take a look at the possibilities as reasons for the club's decision. 
 
Longest Trophy Drought In History 
The fact that, under Steve Komphela, the Glamour Boys went three whole seasons without a piece of silverware confirmed their current trophy drought as the longest since they were formed in 1970. 
 
 
Worst Scoring Record Ever
Chiefs managed to score just 27 goals in total in the league this season, setting a new record low for the club since the formation of the PSL in 1996. Prior to this campaign, their record low had been 32, in the 2007/08 campaign. 

Top Scorer On Six Goals In All Competitions
Bernard Parker managed to finish as the club’s top scorer in all competitions with a measly six goals to his name from 32 games, while the striker was ranked alongside Ryan Moon and Gustavo Paez as their top scorers in the league with only four goals all season.
 
40% Win Record
Though their 48 points was enough to finish in a CAF Confederation Cup spot, it was only the second time in the last 10 seasons that they have finished with less than 50 points (the other time was in Steve Komphela’s first season) and they only managed to win 40% of their 30 league games.
 
Marred By Violence
Chiefs were punished by the PSL after violence in the stands following a 3-0 defeat to Chippa United, although things went from bad to worse as a pitch invasion at the Moses Mabhida Stadium resulted in arrests being made and the club being charged by the league once again. 
 
What can Chiefs do to improve next season?

Good Decision by the Chairman..... Let's remind other people that Chiefs have Sponsors, they sponsor most of the "Chiefs Awards" with cars, money etc.Mr Motaung was not gonna spend from his Bank Account, unlike some Chairmans. The players must feeling bad for not winning anything in 3 years.Reward who for doing what vele?

Awards are earned, they are not anyone's right. If you have not earned anything, what would you be awarded for? Its really a good decision. It would have been awkward for the players to accept awards knowing deep down they failed their mission. Such low class performances were really shocking. Parker still believing that he is the best number 10?! That one just finished all the hope I had that things could get better. If a player does not even see the problem he is going through! Dankie Bra K, good decision here.

Based on that this is a very good business decision. This will encourage more commitment next season. I just feel for Khune and Shabba as they were ever green but to reward them alone would divide the team. Good decision.

when sundowns lost to Barcelona everyone login to comment even those who forgotten their pass words. because now is their team failing to motivate /giving award to players they dont comment. Motsepe give everyone money irregardless of where you come from.
