Former Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach Farouk Khan has defended football manager Bobby Motaung against claims he is responsible for the club's recruitment.
Amakhosi's signings in recent years have often flattered to deceive, and with the Soweto giants' current struggles on the pitch many have pointed the finger at Motaung.
However, Khan believes it's unfair to lay all the blame at his feet because there is a whole scouting team involved in recruitment.
"You know they have a scouting department and it's about time that scouting department must be accountable," Khan told KickOff.
"I think often people blame Bobby you know and I think it's a little bit unfair because he is not the one that scouts... he is maybe the football manager, but these scouts have to do their homework and ensure that whatever information they give him is relevant.
"So, in my opinion I don't think it's fair to blame Bobby because why do you have to blame a scouting department if you're going to blame him? You know every time you hear people, 'Aah Bobby is signing the wrong players...'
"Chiefs is a big club my brother, so from what I've been exposed to over the years in football, all the biggest clubs have what they call a scouting department that will look at three or four options.”
