Motaung: I won't leave Chiefs

2011-10-27 11:07

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs manager Bobby Motaung insists he won't leave the club, despite supporters calling for him to step down from his post.

Amakhosi have failed to live up to the high standards their fans are used to, as they were eliminated from the Telkom Knockout by Platinum Stars, were defeated at home by Golden Arrows in the PSL late in September, and were beaten in the MTN8 final by Orlando Pirates.

However, Motaung remains bullish and has made it clear he will not even consider leaving the club his family built.

"I was born here at Chiefs, it is my home. I'm going nowhere," Motaung told the Sowetan.

"When I signed Knowledge Musona, people were saying all sorts of things. They even laughed at us saying we get additional players for free when we bring players from Zimbabwe. Look what Knowledge did for us. Where is he now?

"There is no way I will destroy this club. This is a family business and I did not apply for the job. My father (Kaizer) has invested his life in this club. We are all working hard to ensure Chiefs continue to dominate."

"We have lost two cups already and we are worried about that, and now we have to fight for the league and the remaining cup," he added.

    Saying it like it is: "This is a family business and I did not apply for the job."

    Half journalism, other crucial point he stressed "I WAS NOT ELECTED BY ANC" WTF is going on with this guy? is he smoking something? What is ANC got to do with this S&*T? I'm glad I'm not KC fan......even if it was a spaza shop there is no way a owner can say it's a family business so I'll never listen to my customers &address their concerns about my customer services....

    Bobby you are running your family business to the ground.

  • phakatsr - 2011-10-27 17:02

    Bobby must be given another job. He is a disgrace to kaizer chiefs family.

  • ludger.machele - 2011-10-27 20:52

    Yes it is a family business, and research has shown that 75% of all family businesses fail within the 3rd genereration, Kaiser Chiefs sure qualifies . . .

    As a True Kaizer Chiefs Supporter I wish to appeal to same, not to allow our emotions to take over. Please, do not tell us about Bobby. Yes he may boast about being Kaizer's son, but he'll NEVER be like him, both on and off the field! Whether Bobby apologizes for his utterances or not - I do not give a hoot! Where was he or old in 1969? Let's rally around our club and continue to support it. Kaizer Motaung has put the record straight and that's the man we respect! I'll tell you what, Jessica is even ten times committed - She weeps when the club loses.

    Even though he appologised but the way he commented to the supporters is a disgrace. We accept his appology.
