Molefi Ntseki responds to latest show of fury by Kaizer Chiefs fans

Kaizer Chiefs fans have for the second time this season caused havoc at a DStv Premiership match, hurling missiles onto the pitch as they bemoaned the team’s 1-0 loss to SuperSport United on Wednesday evening.

Videos showing fans expressing their discontent and some throwing objects at coach Molefi Ntseki and Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung have since gone viral on social media.

Chiefs suffered their third league defeat this season when they went down at Peter Mokaba Stadium this week, with the club fined R100 000 – with R30 000 suspended – following the last incident against TS Galaxy. 

Ntseki insists he understands the fans’ concerns.

"I think they are disappointed because they are looking at the performance of the team, and the expectation is for us to win games. So when you don't win games like this and the one last week, obviously the supporters are disappointed," the coach told the media.

"As much as they are disappointed, I think we have a good team [and] we had a good game, and the players are performing to the best of their abilities. I think the [game] plan worked out today, it's just that we conceded very early."

Wednesday’s loss coupled with Mamelodi Sundowns’ victory over their Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates opened up a 13-point gap between Amakhosi and the log leaders after only seven matches played so far this season. 

However, Ntseki still feels there’s nothing to worry about.

"I think the most important thing is for Kaizer Chiefs to win their games; it's for Kaizer Chiefs to prepare for every game they play because the plan at the beginning of the season has always been to look at each game as it comes," he added.

"We are not looking at other teams because we know that, in us performing well, we will win our games and we'll obviously compete for the first spot [in the league]."
