Coach Gavin Hunt of Kaizer Chiefs has expressed his confusion by a goal that was disallowed during a Kaizer Chiefs and Swallows FC. The match took place on Tuesday evening this week at the Dobsonville Stadium.

Chiefs subsequently lost to the Swallows having had a final score of 1-0. A disappointed Hunt however feels like the decision to disallow a goal made by Daniel Cardoso may have been an unfair one.

The goal was disallowed after it was assessed that Cardoso had fouled Swallows goalkeeper, Virgil Vries while scoring the goal which if it stood, could have resulted in a much happier ending for Amakhosi who have now extended their losing streak to 5 matches.

"This loss serves us well. I've been saying time and time again that we need to start playing development players. These old crocks are tired. We've been using the same players for the past 6 years, what exactly have they brought?"

So far the Bloemfontein Celtic star has proved that he has got both the ambition and the drive to reach this goal, having already scored five goals and one assist in only five games for this season. He was also named the 2020 Nedbank Cup Player of the Tournament.
