Motaung: VV must win or go

2012-04-12 10:34

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs top brass are losing patience with coach Vladimir Vermezovic's failure to earn some silverware, saying they are prepared to replace him with someone more capable.

Vermezovic is meeting with Chiefs decision-makers Kaizer and Bobby Motaung on Thursday, where he will have to plead his case as to why they are fourth on the PSL table and without a trophy this season.

Bobby Motaung told Business Day: "He (Vermezovic) knows his job is based on the success of the team as a coach.

"If the team is not achieving things and is not succeeding, it is normal that we would part ways with the coach. You do not need to be a magician to pick that one up.

"After being with us for three years, he knows the pressures that come with him producing the results."

Vermezovic is aware of the pressure on his shoulders, but says he is not paying attention to the rumours in the media about who is lining up to replace him at the helm of the Glamour Boys.

The Serbian tactician said: "My contract expires in June and everything is my agent's hands now.

"I know that to be part of a big club like this one without winning any trophies is difficult. But of course I would like to stay (at Chiefs) and SA is a very nice country.

"I have read in the newspapers that other coaches are interested in my job. But in this job anything is possible and I will not take it personally. It is normal that Chiefs will want to interview other people and it does not concern me at all."

      i agree with you 100% the team failed him and his biggest failure is agreeing to everything that bobby concern is the timing, we were once in this situation we brought in papic with 6 or 7 games to go and what happened?

    And I say HOLD ON Bobby – you looking at the wrong place…the problem is you! Let’s take a step back – the window period came and players were placed on transfer locally and even internationally. Big clubs, serious clubs, clubs that wanted to win cups and the Premiership were all over the show negotiating, scouting for quality players. Quality players like Pelembe, Myeni, Laffour and the list is endless were all available they were ready to talk! Pirates and Dr Khoza open their Cheque books and built a strong team… What did Bobby and family do??? They again went Zimbabwe hoping to get another Musona for peanuts…let’s face it we have ordinary players at Chiefs at the moment – players that can excite a crowd in one day tournament at Makhulong Stadium or Sinaba Stadium. In conclusion…Bobby is the problem! He wants to run the biggest club in Africa like a spaza shop, owned by a greedy owner who always wants to chow profits through big lavish parties, fancy cars and clothes and yet expect the business to strive. We currently where we are financially because of our sponsors, thanks to our legacy they still with us. Bobby must wake up and smell the coffee…soccer is not about the glamour (excuse the pun), it’s about winning, that's what brings the fans and that’s what attracts the sponsors. The problem is management - period!

      Jazzmam, u should be at Chief's technical director, no joke, u know clearly what it takes to be big not by name but by experience, u deserve a Bell's

  • Thembane.wa.Mahlaza - 2012-04-12 12:19

    who is the lapdog between the trio. kaizer and bobby could have made a good bussiness decision long time ago.

  • Tshepo - 2012-04-12 12:45

    vv is not the only problem i think mr motaung should also fire his son because wants 2 run a big club in africa lyk a spaza shop

  • Mule - 2012-04-12 13:07

    Chiefs is only 6 points behind leaders with 6 games to go still. Why would you start talking about firing the coach now? Surely Chiefs still has the same chance as Pirates and Sundowns to win the league but this talk will ensure that this doesn't happen.

  • Ntando - 2012-04-12 13:42

    You have been fired

  • zuko.skitasi - 2012-04-12 13:49


  • NMothijoa - 2012-04-12 14:52

    Ntate Motaung made a big mistake by putting Bob Stake in charge. Bobby is Mr know it all but he doesn't know what's best for the team. All he know is running his big mouth telling everyone that Chiefs is a family business and he didn't apply for that job. He is the one who's destroying "family business". @Jazzman I think ntate Motaung is the one who should wake up and smell the coffee here. I dont watch Chiefs matches anymore. Who want to watch a team with middle class players? Not me....... Nxa

      cleford - 2012-04-12 16:49

      How many coaches are they going to fire. I think they must review the team manager too.
