Kaizer Motaung’s Plea To Amakhosi Fans…

Kaizer Motaung Has Issued A Plea To Kaizer Chiefs' Fans

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 20, 2018 05:29 PM

Kaizer Chiefs’ chairman, Kaizer Motaung, has issued an appeal to the Amakhosi faithful, urging them to get behind the team as they go into this weekend’s Nedbank up semi-final.

The Amakhosi have one last shot at silverware this season having missed out on the Absa Premiership, MTN8 and Telkom Knockout, with the Nedbank the only thing standing between them and the unprecedented record of going three whole seasons without lifting a single trophy. 

Chiefs face Free State Stars tomorrow evening at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, and Motaung says that they have every intention of winning the game and securing a place in the final alongside either Maritzburg United or Mamelodi Sundowns.

‘Chincha Guluva’ also pleaded with the fans to avoid resorting to violence following the recent scenes at FNB Stadium that led to them being sanctioned by the Premier Soccer League.

Motaung’s full statement read as follows:

“We are aware that there is a sense of unhappiness due to a lack of positive results and the drought of trophies in recent seasons. The management and technical team are working hard to improve our play and change our fortunes. We, therefore, appeal for patience until the end of the season.

“It is important for our supporters to note that as management, we are listening to their concerns and share the pain. We met two weeks ago, as management and technical team, and one of the notable decisions from the meeting is that decisive changes will have to be implemented at the end of the season to remedy the situation.

“At this stage, circumstances do not permit for us to make immediate changes. However, we are looking to have a complete overhaul of the team before the commencement of the new season.”

“Regardless of how dire the situation is, we sincerely appeal for calm, patience and good behaviour from all supporters. We have to avoid endangering other supporters’ lives and the team.

“We are aware of the disappointing results, but violence is never acceptable in our football. We know that it’s only a small percentage of our supporters who are involved in this violence and we have to fight it. We don’t want supporters to get arrested and get into trouble with law enforcement. Violence is not in line with our spirit of Love & Peace.

“We appeal to our beloved supporters for calm and patience ahead of Saturday’s Nedbank Cup semifinal. It’s our intention to win and go to the final. We still have a lot to play for, not only in the Nedbank Cup but also for the league, as we can qualify for one of the continental competitions.

“We really need your undivided support and assure you that decisive changes will happen before the new season to remedy the situation.”

Bafana BaPhefeni baksuza ngomlomo not love and peace anymore. That slogan died with the likes of Petrus Mathabela,Herman Nkuna etc. All teams are equal before fifa rules and thats Why teams like Sundowns,Wits,Bucs,Platinum Stars,Supersport etc are and were able to win trophies in this PSL not NPSL. Those dark days are over and the tables are levelled now. Caf and fifa are always watching us. No manga manga business.

It's desperate times for the Amakhosi this time around. You can even sense that Kaizer is assuring that in the next games security will be beefed! And posibility of people getting arrested.

They should listen to their chairman and behave themselves. Being patient is the only choice they have. The Chairman has spoken. Remember: without him they wouldn't have a club to support... no, they would: Bucs! Lol

It was really sad to witness what was happening after the Chippa game. Not to condone the supporters' behaviour on the day, but if Mr Motaung really listens to us fans, he has a funny way of showing it. He has failed us dismally because for years we've been patient with him, but look now some people have reached boiling points. Mr Motaung must listen to us and heed our call: demote Mr Bobby Motaung and give Mr Kaizer Motaung Junior the Football Manager position. If not, then give the coach and technical team the power to buy their own players, of which we believe is not the case now, and stop buying quantity but buy quality.

Bra K I've always respected you. But in recent time you have left the supporters to suffer to and extent that even dunusa fc is attracting more supporters at home than Chiefs. You left Steve to reduce Chiefs from playing with a winning mentality to playing with drawing mentality, where a win is only a bonus. Each time we look at the starting line up we feel like throwing up. Lastly, tell your coach that a player like Ntshangase can contribute more to the team in attack than lack of defensive qualities would disadvantage the team. We can see what he's doing with the ball during the 20min that he plays. His passes and vision give more hope of scoring than what the entire team does in 90min. Tell him we want Ntshangase to play, whether he can defend or not. Let the boy play finish and klaar.

Which means the big boss don't have any hope as his clueless coach will continue with his defensive tactics hoping for nothing
