Johannesburg - SuperSport United’s new signing, Kingston Nkhatha, has defended his time at Kaizer Chiefs, saying that he wasn’t the worst striker at the club during his spell there.

According to the soccerladuma website, Nkhatha, 29, joined SuperSport this month after a fee was agreed between the two clubs following his decision to sign a pre-contract in Tshwane, and the player has remained adamant that he didn’t leave Naturena because of the fans.

The Zimbabwean, despite being a regular in Stuart Baxter’s side, endured a tough time at the club due to supporters booing and taunting him, with some suggesting that that was part of the reason he made the move.

However, Nkhatha has defended himself in this week’s Soccer Laduma, saying, “I think I played my part and I helped the team in many games. I scored some important goals for the team and won games for the team as well, so no, I wasn’t the worst striker at Chiefs during my time.”
