Former Amakhosi sharp-shooter Marks Maponyane spoke about the team’s frustration after losing to Orlando Pirates in the Nedbank Cup on Saturday.
“Chiefs supporters are always impatient, to them in does not matter whether the coach had just stepped in,” Maponyane told Goal.com
“The fact that they have already lost two cup finals makes it worse. I think they are feeling humiliated and disappointed especially to have failed to beat Pirates this season when they dominated them in league and cup competition under Stuart Baxter.”
Tendai Ndoro scored both goals as Bucs won the Soweto Derby 2-0.
“Again, you would say Steve Komphela deserves a chance having taken the team to two finals, he deserves credit for that.
“There are a lot of issues to deal with at Chiefs apart from the change that saw Komphela replacing Baxter.
“Players cannot be controlled like machines or robots, people need to be patient with Komphela to build a new Chiefs’ side,” Maponyane concluded.
