Kaizer Chiefs Chairman, Kaizer Motaung, has come to the aid of his son, Bobby Motaung.
Bobby, who serves as the club’s football manager, has come in for heavy criticism from frustrated supporters.
According to Chiefs faithfuls, Bobby has dropped the ball with regards to player recruitment, which resulted in the mediocre season.
However, Kaizer insisted this is not the case, as reported by TimesLIVE.
The Chairman also stressed that the club is satisfied with Bobby’s performance.
Kaizer said, "Even on the question of buying players‚ it is not Bobby who buys players. He is just a messenger‚ he is part of a collective that sits with the technical staff and he is told where to go.”
The Amakhosi have now gone four seasons without silverware and supporters aren’t happy.
Some have threatened to boycott the Carling Black Label Cup to show their disapproval for the way the club is being run.
Kaizer said, "I understand the logic and sentiments of the fans‚ they have a right not to come to the Carling Black Label Cup match, but genuine supporters will be there.”
Briefly.co.za gauged the sentiments on social media and the discontent amongst Chiefs supporters was clear for all to see.
