4 Of Middendorp’s Most Memorable Quotes This Season

While we bear patience through the lockdown period without our football, Soccer Laduma takes a look back at some of the memorable moments this season, in particular – quotes from Kaizer Chiefs head coach, Ernst Middendorp.

Chiefs are currently at the top of the Absa Premiership log, with eight matches left to be played and while they have entertained the fans on the field of play, their head coach has also been quite entertaining in the media throughout their journey.

Here are some of Middendorp’s comments over the past months:

  1. “There’s nothing to bounce back from, we are consistent in terms of our position. I think the bigger problem with each and everybody around is that as a team, as a club – it doesn’t matter whether it’s management or stakeholders – Kaizer Chiefs is not used to it, where we are since five years. They don’t know how it is to being on top of the league, being in this position from February going into March,” Middendorp said ahead of the Soweto derby in February this year.
  2. “That is why I am totally unhappy with Makaringe – there was more or less a certain promise that he would come to me in the beginning of the season. I am very unhappy that he did not follow this promise he put in place at a certain time in the first four months of 2019,” Middendorp told the media in February
  3. “I am not going to talk about being tactically superior or somebody talking about paintings from the renaissance or a Spanish painter or an Italian artist. I look into the game and try to figure out what’s good for us to make points,” November 2019.
  4. “Tomorrow it is your advantage, today it is my advantage. I have seen on Wednesday (when Sundowns faced Highlands Park) a situation where I think there should have been a penalty, should we discuss each and every action? The referee indicated it was a goal and that’s it. We are addressing this to the wrong people. Referees are administrators and teachers and if you want a better response – address it to the PSL and SAFA. Don’t follow these guys who repeat it again and again.”
