Khumalo: It's not over yet
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.
