Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs defender Sibusiso Khumalo admitted that it's tough when Amakhosi lose, as some fans get quite upset in public.

Khumalo, who signed from SuperSport United in the off season, told the Sowetan that some of the players are afraid to leave their homes when the team's not doing too well.

“You stay at home when the team is not doing well,” Khumalo said. “You’re scared to go out‚ because you don’t know what people are going to say.”

Chiefs got off to a bad start in their PSL campaign with their first two games ending in defeat.

Amakhosi lost to MTN8 title winners Bidvest Wits (1-2) and Ajax Cape Town (0-1), however they came back with three consecutive wins that took them to the top of the Premier League table, tied with Golden Arrows on 10.

“We didn’t start well. But now we’ve won three games in a row so now the supporters treat you well and smile with you,” said Khumalo.

“So you just have to focus and not take things personally when the fans are angry at you."

Chiefs host Ajax Cape Town at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday (18:00 kick-off).
