Speaking to presenter Robert Marawa on 947's YouTube channel, Tshabalala said the club needs improvement and it is up to the players to deliver.

Tshabalala said:

"If you get familiar with the environment, you get complacent; after that, you get mediocre, and after that, you're gone. Players don't enjoy playing football and don't know the value of playing for Kaizer Chiefs. You can lose games but the manner in which they lose games... Give your best, work hard and leave everything on the field."

Despite their bad run of form, which has seen them lose two consecutive PSL matches, Johnson says he still believes his job is safe till the end of the season

"Please tag all the KC players."

Ubhekani said it was good advice:

"In simple words, do not get too comfortable. Forget about the comfort zone because it results in you not fulfilling your potential and not doing the work."
