Chiefs fans plan to take to the streets


ANGRY Kaizer Chiefs fans are threatenin­g to march at the club's headquarte­rs in Naturena this month to protest against the team’s poor league position and on-field struggles.

#Kaizerchie­fsprotest was trending on Twitter on yesterday as fans of the club voiced their discontent towards the club's management, who they feel are not doing a good job.

A source from Kaizer Chiefs informed IOL Sport that the club is aware of the planned protests but cannot comment on it at this stage.

The Soweto giants lost the league title in dramatic fashion last season. They seemed to be sailing to domestic success before a slump in form in the bio-bubble saw them pipped by Mamelodi Sundowns on the final day.

Coach Ernst Middendorp was fired after that disappoint­ment and replaced by Gavin Hunt, who was clubless following the sale of Bidvest Wits.

The psychologi­cal damage caused by the dramatic league title loss was exacerbate­d by a player transfer ban imposed by Fifa against Amakhosi. Hunt has been forced to work with the players at his disposal and Chiefs have struggled for consistenc­y since the beginning of the season.
