The Kaizer Chiefs is one of the most decorated clubs in South African soccer and in their 47-year history they have won 93 trophies.

But it has been a while since the Chiefs have had that winning taste in their mouths, and many blamed the now ex-coach Steve Komphela.

After their loss of 2-0 against the Free State Stars in the Nedbank Cup, Komphela has put in his resignation with immediate effect.
