Now that VV has gone...

Cape Town - To a certain extent I am very happy that VV is gone, I am not happy he left at this stage of the season but we're sitting with a bigger problem at Kaizer Chiefs.

The problem lies with a cancer that is eating away at the culture that is of excellence at Kaizer Chiefs. This cancer has introduced a culture of chasing a profit rather than pursue excellence and make history. The likes of Barcelona, Man United, Man City, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich break the bank to ensure they get the best players in the world to maintain not only their status as top teams in their respective nations, but to to also uphold their proud history. Can I say the same about Kaizer Chiefs? No. Why? Simple, instead of spending money on maintaining and upholding our proud history, we behave like discount seeking consumers buying cheap with very little return in investment. Cebo Maanyapelo's notion, though chastised, of buy one get one free is a true reflection of what Kaizer Chiefs has become. And it is simply because of this cancer that is eating away at the cells and fibres of excellence at Kaizer Chiefs. We can fire VV and bring Mourinho, we will still not improve. I would not be surprised with 7 league games and the Nedbank Cup left, we end this season without any silverware. We'd be fooling ourselves if we think we are on course to win the league this season.

It is because of this cancer, that we have become the laughing stock of other teams this season. We waited 12 years to win a league title, and we are now going on another 12.

This cancer affecting the team that I love needs serious and immediate chemotherapy. This cancer has a name, it is Bobby Motaung.
