Sundowns run riot in Soweto

Kaizer Chiefs

Despite Rulani Mokwena opting for his second-string Sundowns side, the ten men of Kaizer Chiefs conceded five goals in the second half, on home soil. 

Even the most passionate Chiefs supporter would have been optimistic going into this tie. Nevertheless, fresh off that victory against SuperSport United, the Glamor Boys could make it two league wins from two for the first time this calendar year. 

Those expectations were quashed just minutes into the second half where Sundowns put five past a helpless Kaizer Chiefs outfit. The second stanza can only be described as a training match and it was anything but a contest.

Indeed, Cavin Johnson is the first  Kaizer Chiefs coach to lose by five goals. Following the defeat, the interim manager went on to say that his team needed to regroup and secure the top eight.

Johnson added, “Their first goal is actually a foul for us. There is a foul on the right-hand side exactly by me, and he points the other way. From that moment they go and score. That really breaks your players as well and after that, it’s just a snowball effect.” 

He also mentioned that the Chiefs team he saw in the final fifteen minutes of the fixture isn’t the one he recognizes.
