Bobby Motaung says Kaizer Chiefs fans must be patient with coaches

Bobby Motaung says the rapid replacement of coaches at Kaizer Chiefs is a result of fan pressure.

The Soweto giants are currently without a permanent head coach following the sacking of Molefi Ntseki.

They are temporary under the guidance of interim boss Cavin Johnson.

Ntseki was relieved of his duties after a strong reaction from fans following their slow start to the ongoing DStv Premiership campaign, that currently sees them in 10th place on the standings with just four wins from 12 games.

He was only brought in this campaign to replace Arthur Zwane, who was given just a season after taking over from Stuart Baxter.

In total Amakhosi have made eight coaching changes in the last five years.

Motaung said on SABC Sport: “It boils down to patience and the plan. Now, with the pressures we’re having now, with the mentality of people now, people are not patient. I don’t know where this culture comes from.

“Chiefs supporters have always been patient, but all of a sudden we have these issues of pressure, pressure now. Some of us are patient, some of us have a vision, but the vision can only work if people are together and share in the vision.

“Like the chairman was saying about the vision of building Kaizer Chiefs – 53 years later, it’s still there. But there were bumps, smooth riding sometimes, and things didn’t work sometimes.

“Even in the past, we’ve had top players who lost – even Doctor Khumalos had seasons when there was a drought, but we managed to soldier on and build.”
