It seems Kaizer Chiefs have woken up from the nightmare of last season with a brand new headache as their 2016/17 league campaign got off to a poor start, with a 2-1 loss to Bidvest Wits. The supporters have been talking, and they are unhappy.
It is, of course, unfair to jump to conclusions after the first game of the season, particularly when playing against last season's runners-up away from home. However, Amakhosi are no ordinary club, and the Khosi Nation are not patient supporters. Many have taken this as yet another sign that coach Steve Komphela may not be the man for the job. This was discussed anonymously on Chiefs' official supporters group on Facebook.
"This shows that Chiefs is too big for a South African coach. We don't lose openers, Steve can't handle Chiefs and I will say this even if we beat Cape Town City."
Others put the loss down to poor tactics employed by the coach.
"We are obviously not happy, because when we won Carling Black Label Cup, we played 4-4-2, but Komphela decided to play 4-4-1-1 tonight. That is why we lost the game we were not supposed to lose."
The commentors' names have been left out to respect their privacy.
Do you agree with these supporters? Are Chiefs too big for a South African coach? Is the formation letting Chiefs down?
