Kaizer Chiefs are being asked questions both on and off the field as they appear to be struggling a bit at the moment.

This has led to a conversation as to who deserves to be in the team, Gavin Hunt's name is not on that list, his coaching is not in question, the players are under the microscope.

The Chiefs had a number of obstacles at the start of the season with some players being injured and the team unable to attract any new talent.

Amakhosi have failed to impress again with a 0-0 to TS Galaxy and they received a sound lashing from the Orlando Pirates, losing 0-3.

Ex-player, Rene Richards believes that the team is not hungry to win at the moment.

"It's like they don't have energy and willingness, I mean that's definitely not on the coach because I know Gavin Hunt is an inspirational and motivational coach," Richards tells
"Gavin loves his players, he gives them the same treatment and respect. This boils down to players because I've been in this situation when I was at Chiefs where most of us lost motivation and we were losing week after week."

Earlier, reported that the 2020/21 PSL season is holding strong but many high profile coaches have been stuck at home due to unemployment. With PSL teams being known for making coaching changes it's no wonder so many have been watching the action from their homes.
