Things are also not good to Kaizer Chiefs FC football manager Bobby Motaung. Chiefs fans have been calling Bobby Motaung to step down as a manager.
Amakhosi fans are believing that Kaizer Chiefs FC is not performing well since Motaung taking over. Chiefs is now eight years without winning any trophy. It’s not the first time Chiefs fans calling for Bobby Motaung to step down. The first time Chiefs fans asking for Bobby Motaung’s removal, he hitter back.
“As for those who dream that Bobby Motaung must step down, that Bobby Motaung must go, it is a dream! Bobby Motaung goes nowhere. I’m not elected here. I was not appointed by ANC or IFP… I will be here as long as this company exists,” Motaung saying at the time hitting back to Kaizer Chiefs FC fans.
“I didn’t apply with a CV for the job, so that must be clear to those that have a dream that Bobby Motaung must step down. We have an organisational structure that we must respect.” Motaung said saying Chiefs is a family business. However years later, he changed his statement, saying he didn’t say Chiefs is his family business, as he said fans misunderstood him.
“Family business, my brother, is about people that are around the team. It’s not my mother, my father, my uncle. No no no, I was talking about the Kaizer Chiefs family.” Motaung reportedly told SA FM, as quoted by the South African.
“It’s about the players, the supporters. They all our family. I think those comments were just misplaced because of what I was saying on the day. I was raising a different point. I was not meaning it’s my business.”
“[So] don’t break the Kaizer Chiefs family. Don’t break the supporters and players. The coaches and players were criticised and ridiculed including myself.
“In the context of family, we are a family. The Amakhosi family was built by our chairman. It’s a huge family. I would have been stupid to say it’s my family business.”- Bobby said.
This time, Chiefs fans are really sad, they want him far from Kaizer Chiefs FC management. They are even planning to protest against him, because they believe Chiefs is dieing on his hands.
“Since Motaung taking over, Chiefs is no longer the same, we are signing average players not quality. Motaung is very stingy, he doesn’t want to break the back, he must step down. Chiefs must share their shares to one of South African billionaires. But the contract must include that the name and vanues won’t be change.”- said one of Chiefs fans [Makaota J Masiu].
He must go
I no longer watch psl games, since I was deeply hurt by the comments made by Bobby. I even cut my relatiinship with Chiefs. Today I sit down and watch Premier league games. I grew up supporting Kaizer Chiefs, today I’m 52 years. Since the comments made by a man who never played football (Bobby) I felt it’s enough with Kaizer Chiefs.
