According to KickOff, Nkhatha became a target of Amakhosi fans frustrations as he missed several chances to hit the back of the net.

The Zimbabwe striker has now join the ranks of SuperSport United striker and revealed that he used to lie awake at night and question himself on why the boo-boys were on his case.

“Even sleeping became difficult because I would be asking myself: ‘What did I do wrong today?’ People were on my case, even though many others in the team also made mistakes, but they were never on them. In the end I had to put them aside and go back to work,” said Nkhatha.

“You end up thinking that maybe these fans are booing because I am a foreigner and they just don’t like me for that.

“But at the same time I would also know that some of them just supported me for being part of the team.

“The trouble is that when one person starts being negative it rubs off on the rest of the crowd.”

Nkhatha will look to get revenge on those particular fans as he dons the colours of United as he faces his former club with the encounter set to be played at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday, February 17.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
