Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp believes that
goalkeeper Virgil Vries can overcome the boo-boys following a poor spell of
form for the club.
Vries has made a number of catastrophic errors this season
after he was selected to replace Itumeleng Khune in goal.
Khune is out injured for the rest of the season with a
The Glamour Boys were forced to bring in Daniel Akpeyi during
the January transfer window for Vries, such was the lack of confidence the team
had in the shot-stopper.
During the win over The Magic FC last weekend in the Nedbank
Cup, the Namibia international was booed as he warmed up on the side-lines.
Middendorp said: "I'm really not focusing on booing players;
my job is to coach the club. Supporters are there to express their emotions and
they have the right to do so.
"I don't think it will kill his confidence, we are
talking about a national team player for Namibia here, he has to bounce back
and perform again."
Chiefs are next in action on Saturday when they take on
Polokwane City at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Pietersburg.
