Since entering their extended mid-term break, Chiefs have been left stunned by the unceremonious departure of marksman Kingston Nkhata, who joined SuperSport United last week. 

In addition, speculation that Itumeleng Khune could part ways with the club has been intensified by news that the club had not arranged a contract extension with the goalkeeper as yet.

"The situation can be a setback for Chiefs. Losing their players is not ideal in the middle of the season," Kannemeyer told South African journalists

Kannemeyer happens to be one of them, primarily because he thinks that all the recent developments could have an adverse effect on the squad as the campaign continues.

"In the middle of the season, these changes can work against them and allow title chasers like Sundowns to make up ground," added Kannemeyer.
