Whatever the outcome tomorrow, soccer is the real winner, or at least that is what the losing side can say to make themselves feel better.

Earlier, Briefly.co.za Kaizer Chiefs recently received an unexpected response from South African soccer fans after they took to their official Twitter page to share their well-wishes with South African matriculants who are writing their final exams for 2020.

"Good luck to all the matric candidates and all the students writing their exams. #Amakhosi4Life #MatricExams #Matric2020," they wrote.

Twitter users, avid soccer fans and South Africans seemingly could not help themselves from dragging the soccer team. Many of them shared their disappointment at the team's performance in recent games.

In other news, 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.

Richards questions Chiefs players, not Gavin Hunt's coaching ability

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 KickOff.com.
"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."
