Man United & Kaizer Chiefs: Same Boat

We’re three games into the 2013/14 season, and both Kaizer Chiefs and Manchester United find themselves in a similar situation.

A fine collective performance from Chiefs last season saw them lift their first Absa Premiership title in eight years, as well the Nedbank Cup trophy.

Meanwhile, United regained the English Premier League title having lost out the year before to rivals Manchester City.

Now, with three games gone in each respective league, the Amakhosi have won one, lost one and drawn one this season, while the Red Devils have exactly the same record.

As it stands, Stuart Baxter’s team are ninth on the log with four points, while David Moyes’ men are seventh, with the same points tally.

Story: Baxter: We Have To Bounce Back

The difference is that fans of Manchester United are giving Moyes a chance to turn things around. He’s a new coach and they will only start worrying three quarters of the way through the season.

Chiefs fans, however, have already started to pile the pressure on Baxter, despite the fact that they’ve only lost one game and that there are still another 27 league games to be played.

Both head coaches now have to deal with the international break, where six Chiefs players and four United players will turn out for their country, having trained away from their club side only to return shortly before their next league game.

Is it really time to panic just yet?
