Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp believes it
is crucial for Amakhosi to keep their feet on the ground and take the season
one game at a time.
Chiefs were dealt a humbling defeat by Maritzburg United in
the Telkom Knockout semi-finals but bounced back in style against Stellenbosch
FC on Wednesday night, thrashing them 4-0 at Cape Town Stadium.
Middendorp is convinced that unrealistic expectations will
negatively impact Chiefs' season and he wants to keep the players focused on
the job at hand.
"I was quite irritated to hear some comments inside the
club totally confusing," Middendorp told SuperSport TV.
"I think actually each and everybody, fans, technical
team, management, should be humble.
"To say we're coming out of a season position nine, not
achieving anything, and we should not run away and carry away just (because) we
have the expectation, we have a history.
"I think it's absolutely important that we're staying
humble and healthy with the situation we're in and go with the right attitude
to the next game and not criticising and destroying ourselves with a useless
attitude and think we're on cloud nine."
