Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas has urged Amakhosi fans at the stadiums to support the players instead of booing them during the matches.

Amakhosi suffered a 1-1 draw against Baroka FC on Tuesday after Siphiwe Tshabalala cancelled out Daniel Cardoso's own goal.

The Soweto giants are yet to register a win in the league as Chiefs fans left the Peter Mokaba Stadium disappointed. 

Last week, during their 3-1 defeat against Wits, Amakhosi fans showed their grievances by booing the players and calling for substitutions.

"Yes, I know the supporters (expectations) but, please, I want also the fans to support the players during the game. We need our fans to support the players," said Solinas as quoted by KickOff website.

"During the game is not the moment to criticise the players. The players need support during the game. This is a real fan. A real fan is when you support your club and players.

"After, when we finish the game - yes, you can judge the players. But during the game, no. The players need support.

"(Bernard) Parker is a Kaizer Chiefs player and he needs support. The players in training work hard, believe me, they work hard and put effort in training."

Chiefs are back in action on Friday against Maritzburg United at the Harry Gwala Stadium.

Kick-off is at 20:00.
