Bobby: Chiefs have regrouped

2012-04-17 10:28

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs have regrouped after their Nedbank Cup loss and are ready to face Maritzburg United in the league on Tuesday, according to the Amakhosi top brass.

The Glamour Boys are without a trophy this season, and their exit in the last-eight of the Cup to Free State Stars will have been a major blow, but general manager Bobby Motaung says they are focused on the league now.

Motaung said in the Sowetan: "We decided to stay over in Polokwane after Saturday's game to regroup properly.

"The problem is that last week was hectic for us as we were dealing with the departure of coach (Vladimir Vermezovic) and also preparing for the cup game.

"(Head coach) Ace Khuse, (and assistants) Doctor Khumalo and Arthur Zwane had only two days to prepare for the game. The loss was painful but we are back on our feet.

"I believe we will win (on Tuesday) because we all know what a defeat will do to our title hopes. We are still confident of winning the league title."

Maritzburg coach Ernst Middendorp will be hoping Chiefs are in fact not 'back on their feet,' as he will be looking to secure three points in their quest to finish in the top eight.

With his defenders giving him all manner of headaches in their Nedbank Cup exit to Sundowns, the German said: "We need to stop this nonsense of donating goals, it is unacceptable if you consider what happened in the game against Sundowns.

"We need to remain tight at the back. Chiefs are a tough side but we need to start getting results."

Chiefs are fourth on the table with five games to go, and sit six points below leaders Sundowns, so a win against the Team of Choice is vital if they are to take home any silverware this season.

      Bobby is the one who cause challenge in kaizer chiefs.He does not buy quility players.actually Bobby expect to buy two players and got bonus after.

      Say that again Vuyo cs Mr Bobby always aim 4 out of contract players that hv been rendered surplus by their teams...Chiefs hs turned to b a rehab facility to surplus players who run out of favour to their teams.when was th last tym we contested 4 a best player

    Ag all I wish 4 is to c Chiefs winning their remaining games,that's all.m quiet certain that nw they r praying 4 Pirates/Sundowns to draw or loose some of their remaining games.every season we always rely on other reams to do bad as if we dnt hv any resources to buy good players.every1 beats Chiefs these days cs they r vulnarable in all departments.

    Bobby is probably expecting chiefs to regroup because it will be facing "weak" opposition in the remainder of the log. However, there is sundowns to contend with as his wish might turned to be just a smokescreen. All that the man is doing is to stir fans emotions when he knowingly know that the ship is sinking. With all due respect, Khuze and Doctor don't possess similar acumen to VV and players faith in them would not win them the remaining games on its own. Yes, I agree with sentiments that Chiefs must not hope for anything this year, maybe in two or three years to come.

  • Mhlengi - 2012-04-17 12:05

    This thing of focucing on the log now it not going to work Chiefs need to do some changes including Bobby he is the one who couse this by not buying the quality players so at the moment i dont see Chiefs getting better unless Kaizer remove his arougant son

  • Cosmas - 2012-04-17 12:06

    kwa kwa kwaaaaaaaaaaaaa......, losers!

  • Luketo - 2012-04-17 12:16

    They must take da 3 points so dat they don't give up da chase so early

  • mshokoane - 2012-04-17 12:18

    Yes, it is important to win our games.

  • precious.sehlohole - 2012-04-17 13:31

    chiefs must stop playing games and buy proven quality players.this new philosophy by bobby of buying untested potential stars is back firing big time.chiefs has been winning trophies and cups with stars and not with players still trying to prove themselves.its slowly but surely becoming a mediocre team in the psl.rememeber liverpool,they used to be great and now they are just the shadow of their former self.its down hill for chiefs from here.

  • Sibusiso - 2012-04-18 16:32

    Chiefs will regroup once they fire Bobby himself,the guy is pure badluck 4 Amakhosi.
