- Kaizer Chiefs' fate is looking a little bit bleak ahead of their next game as they now have two players off the field
- Coach Gavin Hunt has confirmed that both Khama Billiat and Ramahlwe Mphahlele are down due to injuries
- The team is set to face their rivals Orlando Pirates on Saturday for the Soweto Derby
Coach Gavin Hunt has confirmed that Kaizer Chiefs are two men down ahead of the Soweto Derby that is set to take place this Saturday against their rivals, Orlando Pirates.
Both Khama Billiat and Ramahlwe Mphahlele will not be able to offer their skill set to the team at the Derby as they have both recently suffered injuries that will see them unable to play for the next few games.
“Rama has, you know, had a decent season with us so far, so that’s been a bit of a blow because that’s areas of the field I don’t really want to change, and we’ve had to change in the last two games,” Hunt said.
The South African reported that there may be a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel for Chiefs as they will have Bernard Parker back on the field, something that comes as a bit of a relief for coach Gavin Hunt.
Meanwhile, soccer fans have had this to say about the upcoming derby:
"Bob Save Super Bowl Final in 1988, I listened on radio, now Umhlobo Wenene FM. We lost 2-1 to Orlando Pirates. First Soweto Derby I watched on TV was the 5-1 loss...I cried Disappointed but I had to move to Joburg to watch LIVE...won tickets through competition, 2006, 1 all."
In other Briefly.co.za sports news, Outspoken former Kaizer Chiefs player Junior Khanye has asked the team's mid-fielder Siphelele Ntshangase to leave the team. According to Khanye, Ntshangase is under too much pressure at Kaizer Chiefs and will fair better playing for another team such as Chippa United, Black Leopards, or even AmaZulu.
Speaking candidly during a recent interview, Khanye said that Ntshangase, who has made only 5 appearances on the field for Kaizer Chiefs in all their competitions this season, does not have a future with the team and should rather seek greener pastures elsewhere.
"He can even go back to Baroka because those coaches there also believe in ball players. To be honest‚ he doesn’t have a future at Chiefs because he has been sitting there for a long time and nothing has happened."
