KAIZER Chiefs supporters have grown increasingly frustrated by the sort of coaching and player acquisitions in recent times, with Bobby Motaung (pictured) often coming under fire.

The club’s ongoing trophy drought dating back to 2015, which is unprecedented in their 49-year history, is one that leaves a bitter taste in the mouths of the Amakhosi faithful. The club’s fans were often seen remonstrating towards the VIP suites at FNB Stadium when things were not going well.

But Motaung is confident these are gestures of love both for himself and the Kaizer Chiefs brand, while the performances of the new signings such as Samir Nurkovic and Kearyn Baccus have so far been “making it” according to the football manager.

“The fans love me. For the mere fact that they criticise what I do, or the job that I do, it encourages me,” said Motaung, adding, “It’s for the sake of the club, I mean if there’s no performance in the team, somebody must take the stick and unfortunately, with my responsibility, I take the stick.”


Highlands Park beat Polokwane City on penalties after a goalless draw in the MTN8 semi-final at Makhulong Stadium on Tuesday night. Yesterday saw Sundowns face SuperSport in a Pretoria derby at Lucas Moripe Stadium, with the teams tied after the first leg at the same venue. — KickOff, WR.
