The Soweto giants suffered a surprise 2-1 loss to Maritzburg United in the Telkom Knockout semi-finals over the weekend.

Chiefs digital manager, Kaizer Motaung’s daughter, Kemiso apologised for the club's 'shocking' performance and also replied to another comment on Instagram claim 'bad tactical decisions were made'.

It remains to be seen if Middendorp was responding to those comments, but the coach feels the everybody, including supporters and management, should remain humble.

"I was quite irritated to hear some comments inside the club totally confusing, I think actually each and everybody, fans, technical team, management, should be humble.

"To say we're coming out of a season position nine, not achieving anything and we should not run away and carry away just [because] we have the expectation, we have a history.

"I think it's absolutely important that we're staying humble and healthy with the situation we're in and go with the right attitude to the next game and not criticising and destroying ourselves with a useless attitude and think we're on cloud nine."
