Kaizer Chiefs suffered an embarrassing 3-0 loss at the hands of Mamelodi Sundowns in their opening fixture of the DStv Premiership. Chiefs looked way out of their depth as Sundowns dominated the match at the FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The goals were scored by new signing Kermit Erasmus, Themba Zwane, and Peter Shalulile. Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt remarked that the difference was that Sundowns made some high profile signings during the transfer window.

“I did think we created some good opportunities at times, but as I said defensively wise it left a lot to be desired," he said.

Hunt also went on to say that he still had more to say but he would rather say it to his players behind closed doors. He said that they had to knuckle down, see what they have, and take it from there.

Chiefs were unable to make new signings because of an ongoing court case regarding a possible transfer ban.

Hunt said: “We know where the problems are, we know the problems from day one. But it is what it is. We ended up with six academy boys on the field so you got to start building."
