Former Orlando Pirates midfielder Benedict ‘Tso’ Vilakazi has expressed his disappointment at Kaizer Chiefs’ fans, who hurled objects at head coach Molefi Ntseki, after the 1-0 League loss to TS Galaxy on Sunday.
The result in Mbombela meant that Amakhosi are winless in the opening three matches of the 2023/24 DStv Premiership season and are currently in 13th position on the log with just one point.
As a result of the actions of the fans the coach left the pitch with the assistance of members of the South African Police Services (SAPS).
The iDiskiTV analyst believes it’s too early in the season for fans to show frustration and that there is nothing that warrants a violent reaction towards the coach, adding that if fans are that unhappy they must take it up with Chiefs management.
“I’m so disappointed. I’m very, very disappointed,” Vilakazi said on iDiskiTV.
“This shows an unappreciative side from us as black people when someone does good.
“I always say there are three results in a game you will either win, you will lose or you will draw. So expect that when you go to the stadium to watch your team play.
“Last week he [Ntseki] won and everyone was saying he is a hero, today he loses a game and we hit him with objects. I can’t even express how touched I am because of how disappointed and heartbroken I am with how we are treating our coaches.
“I mean no one goes to a game with the intention of losing. Everyone wants to win but on the day it boils down to who wants it the most.
“It’s always like that and now if TS Galaxy do what they are supposed to and push hard they deserve the win because they worked hard in the game.
“It’s sad and if people have got issues [the] management is always there. Management is there to handle supporters’ concerns but on the field there is a coach. So if they have issues let them take those to the office and let the office deal with that.”
