Kaizer Chiefs Football Club has been busy with signing new players for the new 2016/2017 Premier Soccer League Season. The Amakhosi, as they are known to the South African Football fraternity, has already acquired 10 new players who are said to be top quality by their loyal fans.
It has been very difficult to sign top quality players at Chiefs for the past 2 seasons and that led to Chiefs not winning anything on the previous 2015/2016 season. The fans find it very disappointing for a team of Chiefs’ caliber not to win even a single trophy in a season. The Amakhosi faithful are known to talk about their team as they claim Chiefs is the only team with a lot of trophies in the country.
A lot has happened at Chiefs, but the truth is yet to be said about the change of management at the team. Fans have been very disappointed with the services of team manager Bobby Motaung. They claim Bobby does not have the interest of the team in his heart, but in the money. Bobby is said not interested in top quality players who are worth millions of rands. The Chiefs manager has been criticized for signed a lot of players from Zimbabwe as the market there is very cheap. The media has reported that Chiefs are known to buy a single player from a team in Zimbabwe and get another one free.
Kaizer Chiefs must act with due diligence regarding the issue of Bobby as part of the management. He has not been a good man for the Amakhosi fans lately as he once told them he did not apply for a job at Chiefs and indicated that the team is a family business. The man is arrogant at times and not fit for the position of a team manager at a of Chiefs’ caliber.
The team manager position needs someone who is not part of the family at Chiefs. They should hire someone who played professional football and knows the South African football culture and who knows football in general. Currently Bobby seems not to understand what football is all about. Bobby is not the man to help Chiefs when then they require top management to intervene in certain circumstances.
Teams like Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates are signing top quality players for the new season while he is busy signing average players. The same mistake happened last season while Chiefs were expected to continue their winning streaks. His father is the owner of Kaizer Chiefs boss and many believes Bobby should be given a different position to the current one. The fans would like Kaizer Motaung Junior, bobby’s younger brother, to take over as team manager. Motaung junior played professional football and understands the game very well. He played for Kaizer Chiefs before retiring 2 seasons ago.
Many believes Chiefs will never be the same if Bobby remains team manager. The moment of truth should come earlier for Chiefs fans. They supported Chiefs through good and bad. Chiefs is said to be the number one team in terms of supporters in the country as they have millions of fans.
