Doc: This Has Been Another Season To Forget For Chiefs

Last weekend, Kaizer Chiefs ended their season on a disappointing note after failing to win the Nedbank Cup title.

The loss to TS Galaxy marked four seasons without silverware for Amakhosi and this week, SportPesa Clubhouse column ambassador, Doctor Khumalo touched on the final that took place in Durban.

This is what the Chiefs legend had to say:

“This has been another season to forget for Kaizer Chiefs, as they finished yet another season empty-handed. The fact that Galaxy FC is campaigning in the lower division makes it even worse. We are not going to shy away from the fact that those are minnows, with all due respect to the Nedbank Cup deserving champions.

“I had a chat with some of my colleagues about this loss and we reminded each other of the day Chiefs was beaten by Storm Breakers, back in the day. They came from Seshego, in Limpopo, and had the likes of Trott Moloto and so many other legends. You go back and reflect on being knocked out by Pretoria University and Baroka FC. Sometimes we need to look in the past in order to have an understanding and a better vision for the future. I think that’s what needed to be done in preparation for this Nedbank Cup final. You look at the fact that they beat a Premiership side in Golden Arrows in the semi-finals and if you check their track record, you’ll realise that they won all their games in a critical phase of the game, the last five minutes or so. That’s exactly what happened even on Saturday.”

Khumalo went on to talk about the club’s situation and what needs to be done at management level, who should not be folding their arms at this point that the team finds itself in.
