Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs legend Lucas Radebe admits he finds it difficult to see his former club struggling to get results under head coach Steve Komphela.


Chiefs take on Platinum Stars on Wednesday in the Premiership and could equal an unwanted record if they don't achieve victory.

Chiefs last went six games without a win in 2006 under Ernst Middendorp and will match that feat if they don't pick up the three points against Dinaledi.

The Glamour Boys last won a league game in April and have lost three of their last five PSL matches as well.

Nonetheless, Radebe has asserted that Chiefs' current run is way below expectations.

He told KickOff, "It's sad to see my former club struggling, especially in a club that has so much expectation.

"A big club that has achieved so well having to struggle from last season which obviously happens to everybody, but not to the level that Chiefs has struggled."

Amakhosi's clash with Stars gets underway at 19:30 at FNB Stadium.
