Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs striker Kaizer Motaung jnr hopes the Soweto
giants can arrest their slide against title rivals SuperSport United on
Amakhosi, who recently parted ways with coach Vladimir
Vermezovic, suffered their third straight defeat this past Sunday -
losing 2-1 to relegation-threatened Santos.
The result leaves sixth-placed Chiefs eight points off leaders Orlando Pirates, but with a game in hand on the top five teams.
Motaung admits the Glamour Boys are hurting, going as far as to issue an apology to their fans on the club's website.
"We would like to apologise to the fans that have supported the
club through and through," he said. "The fans are dying for this club
and as players we are aware that they are hurting at this stage.
"We are quite aware of the responsibility that comes with wearing
the gold and black and I am sure I speak for all the guys when I say
that we do not take this lightly. Things have not been working our way
but sometimes these things happen in football.
"We will go back to the training pitch and continue working hard
to turn things around. We have five games left with SuperSport United
and Mamelodi Sundowns coming up on Saturday and Wednesday respectively
so we cannot afford to dwell on what has happened in our last three
games but focus on turning things around starting on Saturday,"
concluded the 30-year-old.
