Khumalo: It's not over yet

2012-04-30 14:30

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Doctor Khumalo is adamant the side can bounce back from their torrid run of results when they take on Mamelodi Sundowns in midweek.

Amakhosi saw their slim PSL title hopes diminish even further on Saturday as they were outclassed 2-1 by SuperSport United at the FNB Stadium, marking the Glamour Boys' third successive league defeat.

That run of results has left the Soweto giants nine points off the pace with just four games remaining, but Khumalo, one of three men currently at the helm, remains staunchly defiant as they head into the final run-in to the season.

"The league has not been won yet. We have four games to and the most important thing for us to win our next game. We can do better against Sundowns," he told the club's official website.

Khumalo, who has been associated with Naturena for over three decades, has asked the supporters not to lose faith in their heroes, and that all the players and technical staff are working hard at turning around the club's fortunes.

"I ask the fans to remain patient and continue to rally behind the team. We do understand that they are not happy as things have not been going well. We will continue to do our best to turn around the situation we find ourselves in," he added.

"The players and each and everyone here understand the responsibility we carry to put smiles to the millions of our supporters. Having grown up here and I have seen over the years how strong we are when we all stick together."

Chiefs welcome league leaders Sundowns to the FNB Stadium on Wednesday, with kick off scheduled for 20:15.

    I think its time that we resuffle our team,its time to give Bartman and other players a run because the current team does not give any results...for 16V,brada this may be a lesson for talking,now you see how heavy it is to steering this ship with millions of supports on it...please take the team next season and believe me you will do better

    For the first time in many blunders Chiefs management may have done, this was the worse one ever. Though under VV things were not that rossy, but the man has not performed so badly justifying the way he was fired with only few games left. The new technical team also made blunders by trying to undo all what the former coach has done. Chief has no strong squad, so a good choach is needed and the current technical team proved to be less qualified to take over the helm at chiefs, so firing them will do justice to the team, if indeed they want to rebuild. In the case managment consider a local coach, I think Gordon might win the legue for chiefs.

    I fancy chiefs to beat sundowns on Wednesday so that Pirates can adavance and the cup remain in Soweto. But for doctor to beat fans emotions places security of FNB stadium at risk. Phela, mathaka aa once burnt seats at FNB and to stir their emotions again is not good for our heritage and football administration in this country. Fans are already taking a go at him including, hauling abuse at chief's technical team. You can imagine, what will happen if they loose again against sundowns on wednesday?! Doctor is a good fellow and is better advised to stay away from media.

    The problem here is bobby he does not want to buy quality players all he want is cheap zim player so he can save money to buy porsche cayenne for himself.bobby said he did not apply for the job for managing KZ but was born for it so we must recall him we cannot fire him b`cause people do not apply for managing KZ they are born to do it b`cause of the last name so i think it is time for jessica to get promoted if she fail they is K.motaung JR and if he fails the is a lot of mataung who can do the job. recall bobby or fnb will be hell came KZ vs MS

      Kenny - 2012-04-30 17:04

      gud one Jonny, bobby is d problem,m a KZ supporter eversince I was born, however bobby demoralised my spirit of supporting the club when he publicly voiced out that we as supporters have less or no influence in the team b'cause this is his father's team blah.. blah..blah.Eish, that spoiled little fat brat killed my spirit of supporting kaizer chiefs.yet i will forever support kaizer chiefs but at the moment i stopped going to stadium when the team plays.he pschological pushed me away. he dd apologise to supporters bt now i feel he can come apologise to me personally b4 thinkin to support kaizer chiefs at the stadium or to make simple he must leave his position b'cause i feel he is costing the team. i can not afford to be mocked by pirates fans everyday n now i can not even set my foot outside during weekends.thank you Dr for wise words you gave us as supporters but m sorry to say you can not do anything with the squad you have in more complicated terms you are not fit that position @ this point in time

    When Chiefs play Sundowns it will be Zimbabwe attack vs Zimbabwe defence. I think the attack (Sundowns) are going to humiliate Chiefs here. Its going to be embarrassing.

  • Chengboogy - 2012-04-30 20:31

    "It is a family business", said Bobby Motaung, this killed my soul. Doctor have brought shame to the team by negatively influencing players rebel against V V. There is noway Chiefs can fool us as supporters that they will beat Sundowns. I can't go to stadium to watch Doctor chewing his chappies while the team play as if it received a powerful ZCC early morning spaid.
