Kaizer Chiefs has suspended its football manager Bobby Motaung. This is after a number of videos of Bobby allegedly partying during lockdown have been widely circulated on social media.

Amakhosi confirmed in a statement that the club decided to suspend Bobby after investigating his conduct through internal processes.

"This is a result of a number of videos circulating on social media wherein the football manager is seen taking part in festivities during what looks like the lockdown period. Subsequently, the club would like to confirm that Bobby Motaung is suspended with immediate effect up to and including 31 August 2020."

The PSL league leaders also confirmed that Bobby is not allowed to accompany the team to any training session or scheduled matches.

"Even though he has tested negative on four occasions for Covid-19 during the club’s mandatory tests, he is ordered to remain home and self-quarantine during this time."

Chiefs added that stringent measures have been put in place to ensure that its members play a role in the curbing of the spread of the Covid-19 and flattening the curve.

In other news related to Chiefs, Briefly.co.za reported that Kaizer Chiefs will play their remaining 2019/20 Absa Premiership home matches at Orlando Stadium in the Gauteng biologically safe environment (BSE).

The stadium belongs to their arch-rivals Orlando Pirates. The league leaders will share the venue with Chippa United. The venues were announced in a televised draw last week.

Amakhosi explained on their official Twitter handle that they'll not be able to use their home ground, FNB Stadium, as it will be an unfair advantage to other teams who have relocated to Gauteng for the remainder of the season.

"The PSL did a stadium draw just now (last Wednesday) to determine which stadium will be used by which team. Since all games will be played in Gauteng, we cannot use FNB Stadium as it will be an unfair advantage since other teams cannot use their home grounds."
