Kaizer Chiefs’ Bernard Parker loses his temper with Nurkovic? [Watch]

May 12th 2021 at 13:16

Kaizer Chiefs captain Bernard Parker was captured on camera uttering vulgar comments at his teammate Samir Nurkovic during the Amakhosi’s 1-1 draw against Swallows FC.

The incident took place in the dying minutes of what proved to be yet another disappointing outing for Kaizer Chiefs in the DStv Premiership.

Did Bernard Parker just said “ Listen to me mother fucker “ to Samir? It is bad at @KaizerChiefs

— Sydney (@sydneymaswangan) May 12, 2021

The Amakhosi battled back against Swallows FC to earn a 1-1 draw however the point done little in their quest to finish in the top eight.Swallows opened the scoring in the eighth minute after Kagiso Malinga attacked a diagonal delivery from Sifiso Hlanti to find the far corner with a first-time volley leaving Bruce Bvuma with no chance to stop it.

Kaizer Chiefs were back on level terms seven minutes later when Castro finished a loose ball into an empty net following a back-post header by youngster Happy Mashiane.

I had thought Bernard Parker was insulting a Swallows player. Turns out, he was insulting his teammate Samir Nurkovic. Called out a big insult that the cameras unfortunately caught. He kept asking "are you talking to me?" And he does this in front of the young Ngcobo.

Mamelodi Sundowns set to sign a number of international stars!

May 12th 2021 at 00:51

Mamelodi Sundowns are expected to make a number of high profile signings at the end of the season with one of them already being a done deal.

Mamelodi Sundowns made a number of big signings at the beginning of the current campaign however it had a strong local flavour to it.

The Brazilians roped in some of the PSL’s top stars in Kermit Erasmus, Aubrey Modiba, Peter Shalulile, Rushine De Reuck, George Maluleka, Ricardo Goss, Lesedi Kapinga, Grant Margerman, Haashim Domingo, Mothobi Mvala, Khuliso Mudau and Gift Motupa.

The only player to join Mamelodi Sundowns that wasn’t from the PSL was Brian Onyango and he too is a former Maritzburg United defender.

Mamelodi Sundowns to sign a number of high profile internationals?

The defending league champions’ transfer business at the end of the current campaign is tipped to have an international flavour to it this time around.

Mamelodi Sundowns have already acquired the services of Slovakian hitman Pavol Safranko who comes with bags of European experience while another Al Ahly star is also on the club’s radar.

Al Ahly star Hussein El Shahat has revealed that the DStv Premiership giants have made him an offer to sign for the Chloorkop side next season.

Keagan Dolly has also been linked with a sensational return back to Masandawana while the Brazilians are reportedly also interested in re-signing Simba star man Luis Miquissone but they’ll have to cough up a salary of over R1.5 million a month for him.

It remains to be seen which international players the Brazilians are able to land but if anything is to go by, Mamelodi Sundowns’ attack in particular looks set to welcome some big name stars from abroad.

The introduction of international stars may very well mean the likes of Gaston Sirino and Bangaly Soumahoro could be leaving the club while Sundowns will have to fight hard to keep hold of star attacker Peter Shalulile.

Serero made a total of 25 appearances for the champions in his newfound midfield role while registering three assists.

Kaizer Chiefs to sack Gavin Hunt for a familiar face! – report

May 11th 2021 at 17:51

Gavin Hunt could be heading for the exit door at Kaizer Chiefs come the end of the season and a familiar face has been tipped to replace him!

Kaizer Chiefs are currently in 10th place on the DStv Premiership log standings with just four games to go and the club are reportedly looking at getting rid of Gavin Hunt!

Hunt joined the Amakhosi with much expectancy at the beginning of the season in a blockbuster move however the Four-time league winning coach has found the going tough at Naturena.

Many expected the former Bidvest Wits coach to guide Kaizer Chiefs to the league title following last season’s final day heartbreak but six months in and the Amakhosi have regressed in shocking fashion.

Gavin Hunt’s side have earned just six league wins in 26 matches meaning they’ve dropped points on 20 occasions since the beginning of the season.

While it must be mentioned that Kaizer Chiefs made history by first qualifying for the CAF Champions League group stages and then following it up with a string of incredible performances that saw them qualify for the knockout stages as well.

Kaizer Chiefs to sack Gavin Hunt?

Their domestic form has been a shadow of their continental form and a coaching replacement is on the cards at the end of the season according to South African heavyweight soccer journalist Velile Mnyandu.

“Kaizer Chiefs could be in for their fifth coaching change in the space of just three years, with a return of Stuart Baxter being touted at Naturena.” – IdiskiTimes reported.

Stuart Baxter is currently unemployed after he was sacked in controversial fashion at Indian club Odisha FC last year. The 67-year-old guiding the Amakhosi to two league titles in three years at the club.

He further went on to lift the Nedbank Cup and MTN8 with Kaizer Chiefs and will undoubtedly be at the top of Kaizer Motaung’s shortlist should Gavin Hunt be axed.

Mamelodi Sundowns already departed for Egypt yesterday and Mosimane believes being the only Egyptian team representing the country in Africa’s elite competition should warrant some special concession by the EFA.

Mamelodi Sundowns are resting while Al Ahly are playing – Pitso Mosimane

“Mamelodi Sundowns are resting, we are playing so what does it mean to you? For me, if I had my way, because Ahly is the only team that is playing CAF Champions League representing Egypt, we would protect Ahly if I was Egypt.” Pitso Mosimane told journalists following the Cairo derby last night.

“We don’t put the game of Zamalek, most especially when Sundowns are pushing their games back. We didn’t even rest but it’s the way it is in Egypt so hopefully, but one day more, one day less, it doesn’t really mean that we will lose the pressure. But, yes of course the conditions are different, but we just see that we dropped a little bit in the end but it’s the program, the schedule of Egypt,

“Mamelodi Sundowns are a good team, I created a monster and it’s here to bite me. It’s okay, it’s football. I saw Pep (Guardiola) playing against Barcelona when he was at Bayern (Munich) and he lost to Barcelona, I hope Pitso Mosimane doesn’t lose to Sundowns,”

Apart from Morrison’s exclusion, Simba have a clean bill of health and will be going toe-to-toe with all of their key players including early CAF Champions League Player of the Tournament nominee Luis Miquissone.

Kaizer Chiefs legend launches scathing attack on Khama Billiat!

May 10th 2021 at 16:33

Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs legend Linda Buthelezi has urged Kaizer Chiefs to get rid of Khama Billiat ahead of the new season.

Khama Billiat joined Kaizer Chiefs in a blockbuster move from Mamelodi Sundowns in 2018 however the Zimbabwean ace has failed to hit the ground running for the Glamour Boys.

Khama Billiat arrived at Naturena at a time where many would argue was the peak of his career but fast forward three years later and he looks a shadow of his former self.

While injuries have derailed the former Ajax Cape Town winger, even when he has been fit for Kaizer Chiefs, he hasn’t lived up to the billing and former Amakhosi midfielder Linda ‘Mercedes Benz’ Buthelezi believes it’s time for Billiat to leave the club.

Khama Billiat is doing ‘nothing’ for Kaizer Chiefs – Linda Buthelezi

“Hey, Billiat must go my brother, he is doing nothing for us. I’m a Kaizer Chiefs person, he must go.” Linda ‘Mercedes Benz’ Buthelezi told Kick-off.

“I don’t think Chiefs signed him because they wanted to invest in him in a sense of selling him overseas. If that was the case we would have seen it by now. We can see from far that we invested in him so that he would score goals for us. That didn’t happen. So he must just go.

“The option they have on him means nothing my brother. An option is not an agreement, it’s a recommendation. It means nothing. I don’t think he will be signed for another season because he gave Kaizer Chiefs nothing ever since he arrived. It’s not like he will be missed. What we need are good defenders and also someone who will score goals for us.”

Billiat won three league titles, the Telkom Knockout cup and Nedbank Cup at Mamelodi Sundowns before joining Kaizer Chiefs while also lifting the prestigious CAF Champions League and CAF Super Cup trophies with the Brazilians.

Former Orlando Pirates attacker calls for Josef Zinnbauer’s sacking

“I don’t want to be diplomatic, Josef Zinnbauer must leave now, he tried shame but it’s not happening. The team is playing football we don’t recognize. Orlando Pirates is a big club and can’t be beaten like this, it should be competing for the league.” Bhengu told SoccerLaduma.

“A big team shouldn’t have more than two seasons of bad results, not even challenging for league honours. It’s a disgrace, same as Kaizer Chiefs which is unacceptable for big teams.

“I think they must look at local coaches, forget about foreigners. Pirates needs local coaches now with no pressure and intervention. Give them freedom and time to change things.”

Orlando Pirates currently sit in fourth place on the DStv Premiership log standings 12 points behind Mamelodi Sundowns with five league games to go.

Pitso Mosimane on the verge of being SACKED at Al Ahly! – Board member

May 8th 2021 at 18:49

Pitso Mosimane is on the verge of being sacked according to Former Al Ahly player and current board member Mohamed Fadl.

Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane got off to a blistering start to life in Egypt after wrapping up the league title, Egyptian Cup title and CAF Champions League titles in quick succession however he finds himself under immense pressure six months into his tenure at the club.

The Kagiso born mentor finds himself under immense pressure and criticism in Egypt after a string of shaky results during recent weeks while reports from Egypt suggest a new coach may arrive soon.

Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly finished second in their CAF Champions League group behind Tanzania’s Simba SC while two losses and a draw in their last six league matches means rivals Zamalek top the standings albeit with two games in hand.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns mentor has since come under fire for recent results and an Egyptian Football Association board member has lashed out at him!

Pitso Mosimane’s days are numbered – Mohamed Fadl

“Pitso Mosimane is a lucky coach and is good during big games only,” Mohamed Fadl said as quoted by KingFut.

“People remember Al Ahly’s performance during the René Weiler era and the achievements of Manuel José only. Mosimane doesn’t yet know the potential of coaching Al Ahly. It is not right to play Walter Bwalya at the expense of Mohamed Sherif.

“Next season Bwalya will probably leave on loan, due to the inability of Mosimane to gradually integrate him into the team. Mosimane’s management of the games is poor. We saw Ghazl El-Mahalla and Al Masry completely dominating their matches against Al Ahly.

“Pitso Mosimane will not continue with Al Ahly and the club will search for a new coach. It’s not information I know, but rather an expectation. Mosimane is not a coach for a team of a size of Al Ahly. They deserve a better coach than him. I predicted Al Ahly’s victory at the last derby, which happened. I hope the Reds will win the next derby.”

Former EPL goalkeeper blasts ‘troublemaker’ Bongani Zungu

May 8th 2021 at 06:48

Former Sheffield United and Leeds United goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has taken aim at Bafana Bafana international Bongani Zungu.

This comes days after it was confirmed by Amiens manager Oswald Tanchot that Bongani Zungu would return to the French club next season after a disaster loan-spell at Scottish champions Rangers FC.

The Bafana Bafana midfielder joined Steven Gerrard’s Rangers FC on loan until the end of the season from French Ligue 2 outfit Amiens SC with the option of making the deal permanent however things simply didn’t work out.

Not only did Bongani Zungu fail to stamp his authority on the playing field, but his time at Rangers was marred by off-field controversies and a former Premier League goalkeeper has since hit out at the Bafana Bafana star.

Paddy Kenny hits out at Bongani Zungu

“They’ll definitely be glad to see the back of him. He’s a trouble maker, I think.” Paddy Kenny told FootballInsider regarding Bongani Zungu’s exit from the club.

“They have done so well this season under Steven Gerrard with the discipline they’ve got there. After all that happened earlier in the year, it’s best to start afresh, in my opinion.

“He’s not even their player and he’s only on loan. So you may as well send Bongani Zungu back, cut your losses and move on.”

SOCCER QUIZ | Answer these easy questions & win R1 000 in cash!

Bongani Zungu made a total of 20 appearances since joining the club however just four have been from the starting lineup. 16 have been cameo performances off the bench.

Zungu will now have to return to Amiens and try to restore his reputation in Europe which in reality earned him a blockbuster move to Steven Gerrard’s side just six months ago while a potential move to LaLiga is now unlikely to happening for the former Mamelodi Sundowns star.

George Lebese had been training with Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila for a number of weeks with many expecting him to make his debut before the end of the season however it wasn’t to be.

Tshakhuma head coach Dylan Kerr confirmed that the former Amakhosi and Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder has been sent home due contractual complications that make it impossible for the club to sign him at this stage.

“Well, as far as I know, George Lebese is no longer with us due to his work visa. We can’t get a FIFA clearance for him.” Dylan Kerr said regarding the former Amakhosi and Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder.

“So, I think George agreed, I don’t know because I’m not seeing him. I think George has gone home and I don’t know if he’s still part of TTM. But I can understand his frustration, when he came, he was way off the pace. I mean we’d be risking serious injury if we did play him in a competitive game, because he’s not been training and he hasn’t played since November.

“So he was a long way short off the rest of the squad and we tried very, very hard to get his ITC, but the legalities of it in America… he was already contracted to that club, he wasn’t really a free agent, so we couldn’t really sign him.”

George lebese’s debut season abroad saw him earn two goals and two assists in 16 USLC appearances. He’ll now have to wait for his clearance from America before he plot his next move.

He left the Amakhosi for Mamelodi Sundowns back in 2017 and has ever since struggled to replicate the deadly form he showed for the Glamour Boys.

Kaizer Chiefs fans reach boiling point, protest plans revealed!

May 5th 2021 at 11:21

Kaizer Chiefs fans have reached boiling point and are scheduling a ‘planned protest’ at Naturena to voice their concerns regarding the way the club is being run.

Kaizer Chiefs are going through arguably one of the worst spells in the club’s 50-year history after having gone five years without a title.

Their current state is almost pitiable with Gavin Hunt’s side sitting just above the relegation zone with just four games to go in the DStv Premiership. The club were humiliated by rivals Orlando Pirates in the MTN8 while minnows Richard’s Bay dumped them out of the Nedbank Cup at the first hurdle.

Kaizer Chiefs fans reach boiling point

It’s no secret that Kaizer Chiefs have the largest fan base in the country, and with this comes much expectation. The Amakhosi have been one of the biggest clubs, if not the biggest, in the country for half a century.

Things at Naturena however have spiraled out of control at Kaizer Chiefs over recent years and the once giant of South African football is slowly losing its position.

As shown in recent weeks, teams battling to stay alive in the league like Chippa United and Tshakhuma have happily walked away with a full three points from the Glamour Boys without breaking much of a sweat and fans have now reached boiling point!

Kaizer Chiefs fans are fed up and will now force management to listen to their demands via a scheduled protest with the hope of making the club great again.

The proposed date was 8th of May (This coming Saturday)

However we might be forced to change the date as we still need to make KC Officials aware of our planned visit and hopefully they will welcome us with open arms.

Should you have any suggestion, please feel free to do so. pic.twitter.com/6r8mxlU9u1

The protest which was originally scheduled for 08 May by Kaizer Chiefs fans has been postponed. Amongst the topics fans would like to address with management are the club’s transfer policy as well possible interference in on-field decisions by management.

‘Themba Zwane is my dream signing!’ – Chiefs head coach

May 3rd 2021 at 00:54

Another GladAfrica Championship manager has identified Mamelodi Sundowns ace Themba Zwane as his dream signing.

Days after the iconic Jomo Sono claimed his ideal transfer target would be Mamelodi Sundowns star and reigning PSL player of the Season Themba Zwane should his side gain promotion to the top flight.

Another second tier coach has claimed that ‘Mshishi’, as Themba Zwane is affectionately known as, would be his dream signing.

Themba Zwane is my dream signing – Bizana Pondo Chiefs coach

“For me when I look at South African football now, the best player in the country is Themba Zwane.” Chiefs head coach Clinton Larsen told KickOff regarding his dream signing.

“It’s my opinion. People can disagree with me but it’s my opinion. So if I say he’s the best player in South Africa currently, it would mean that any coach would want him in the team. Am I right? So for me that’s the player. He’s been very consistent with his performances for the last two to three seasons. So I rate him very, very highly, I think he’s really, really a top class player.

“He’s learned how to defend. When you look at his impact in terms of what he brings offensively to the team his playmaking ability. Every coach wants a player who retains possession, who is creative, who can play between the lines, play in the half spaces, has a high level of game intelligence, Themba Zwane got all these things you know. And he’s scoring to his repertoire as well you know. So, he’s a complete midfielder that you’ll never get anywhere in the continent.”

Clinton Larsen’s Bizana Pondo Chiefs currently sit in 16th place on the GladAfrica Championship log standings with just four games to go and will need someone like Themba Zwane to rescue them!

The newly promoted Chiefs are seven points behind 15th placed Steenberg United and nine points behind Cape Town Spurs who are in 14th place and will require a miracle to survive relegation.

We’ve got certain targets and it’s clear that with this block we may not reach the targeted points. But we have done a very good job‚ and we’ve banked a few points.

“I missed the game against Sundowns and I think as a team we did very well. We played with confidence and we applied the plan correctly and managed to get three points. I came back against Chippa United and things did not go our way and we lost the game” – Kaizer Chiefs attacking midfielder Ngcobo said.

“I think we should have scored in the first thirty minutes. We have to focus on our next game against Bloemfontein Celtic, it won’t be easy but we are prepared, and we have to go there and make sure that we get maximum points.

“It has not been a great season for us as a team but there are a lot of positives we as a team can build on.

Kaizer Chiefs key transfer target banished by his PSL club!

April 30th 2021 at 23:51

Kaizer Chiefs target Taariq Fielies has reportedly been banished from the Cape Town City squad following their 5-1 thumping at the hands of AmaZulu.

Cape Town City were handed a shocking 5-1 loss during their midweek fixture against former manager Benni McCarthy’s AmaZulu and the Kaizer Chiefs linked defender has reportedly earned the wrath of Jan Olde Riekerink following the loss.

Cape Town City’s Taariq Fielies alongside Buhle Mkhwanazi and Swallows FC’s Njabulo Ngcobo have been identified as the Amakhosi’s primary targets to solve their leaking defence that have already conceded 28 goals this season.

Kaizer Chiefs target banished by his club

Fielies who was roped in at Cape Town City by former manager Benni McCarthy has reportedly been expelled from Jan Olde Riekerink’s squad after showing little remorse following his side’s shock loss against AmaZulu.

The Kaizer Chiefs target reportedly embraced his former manager Benni McCarthy following the match despite the embarrassing result according to SoccerLaduma.

“I would have to ask the coach what happened because I am not aware that he has not travelled with the team,” Cape Town City chairman John Comitis told the same publication regarding the Kaizer Chiefs target.

“The coach and the player had a meeting yesterday, that I know. But I don’t know what happened in that meeting.”

Fielies opens up about transfer ambitions

“Obviously my mind is still here, but as a player you also want to achieve silverware and go test yourself at bigger clubs.” Fielies said last month following reported interest from Kaizer Chiefs.

“I won’t say Cape Town City is a small club, I just mean basically a new club that is well established also, in Joburg or whatever. I would like to take on the opportunity, everyone wants to go on a journey where there’s different stories and different experiences.

“I’ve spent enough time at this club to establish myself. I feel now is the right time to go on a different journey and hopefully me and the chairman (Comitis) can come to some sort of agreement if there’s a suitable offer.”

Fielies has reportedly been dropped from Jan Olde Riekerink’s squad that will face TS Galaxy later today while his long-term future at Cape Town City is also up in smoke. This will undoubtedly leave clubs like Kaizer Chiefs and other potential suitors watching on with a keen eye.
