Cape Town - Kingston Nkhatha reveals it was not Kaizer Chiefs’ boo-boys who made him switch allegiance and join SuperSport United.

Nkhatha was treated unfairly by some Chiefs fans for his goal bound misses when he donned the black and yellow. Soon, the booing picked up more and the constant noise complaint about why the striker is still in the Chiefs starting XI.

According to KickOff, Nkhatha cleared the air during his unveiling as a Matsatsantsa player and set the record straight.

“Joining SuperSport had nothing to do with being booed, but rather securing my future because I am also a normal human being with a life to live and family to take care of,” said Nkhatha.

“I have to plan my life and secure my future.

“If Chiefs had offered me a contract that secured my future then I would have stayed.

“I cannot blame the Chiefs fans because they always expect more from everyone who plays for Chiefs.”
