Khumalo: It's not over

2012-04-23 09:47

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs co-coach Doctor Khumalo believes that silly mistakes caused their disappointing 2-1 loss to Santos on Sunday.

Khumalo, along with Donald Khuse and Arthur Zwane, have yet to taste victory since taking over from Vladimir Vermezovic - with Chiefs going three games without a win.

The South African legend was unhappy with the result, but says that the title race is not over until its over.

"Let's congratulate Santos. We came here with a game plan that we have to get maximum points," he said.

"Definitely we made silly fouls at the back. Unfortunately we let in two silly goals in two minutes. I must say that it's just back to the drawing board."

When asked if it was a tough job to come in so late in the season, he said: "I would like to believe that if you are given this task, you just have to soldier on and try to persuade the guys. We've been in this game and part of the Kaizer Chiefs family for quite some time.

"But it's not over until it's over."

    Doctor you are right its not over but the way you are playing suggests otherwise. Actions speak louder than words, talk is cheap stop behaving like a fool you are not going to win anything.

    They blamed VV saying he is a poor man manager. Now they are in a more desperate situation losing three matches in a row. Before Santos scores they were simply strolling on the field as if they are Barcelona. It's patently clear there was nothing wrong with the coach, just players who have reached glass ceiling in their careers. It's time Chiefs bought quality players like Morgan Gould.

    Back to drawing board...We have heard this sentence so much since Doctor and Khuse took over. Lets leave the past behind and only take valuable lessons. Chiefs did a mistake a mistake by releasing a coach at crucial time with only 8 games to go. Coaching staff must just forget about the League and only concentrate on the Top 8 next season. There way Chiefs play, I doubt they will even be in Top 8 next season. The downfall of Chiefs came about since Boby Motaung took over. Look at the type of players that Chiefs buy. I dont know who scouts for new players at the Club but whoever it is. Is not doing his job. I miss the times of Farouk Khan. That guy was a good talent spotter.Kaizer must take charge and fire his son from Management. Things are getting worse...

    Firing the coach may not have been so clever after all. I am losing faith in my Amakhosi.
