Under-fire Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas insists he is not worried about his future at the club, despite a string of poor results recently.


However, they then lost 2-1 to Golden Arrows in the Absa Premiership on Saturday as pressure mounted on Italian mentor Solinas.

Chiefs, who are in seventh place on the Absa Premiership standings, were hoping to put a difficult three seasons with former coach Steve Komphela behind them, but there’s hardly been a change.

At the rate the team is going, it looks as though it will be a fourth consecutive season without a major trophy in the cabinet.

“No,” Solinas said when asked if he is worried about his future.

“I will continue to work hard and I will not give up. We move on Tuesday, we have another game.”

” Bobby Cant sack me now, because he knows that I will soon turn the table around, he believes me and I can do it, all I need is patient, Chiefs Fans will sing my praises in no distant time, that I promise.”


Centre-backs Teenage Hadebe and Eric Mathoho both gave away penalties which resulted in goals against Arrows, but Solinas refused to put the blame on his defenders and explained why he decided to start with the duo having recently favoured the pairing of Mario Booysen and Siyabonga Ngezana.


“I don’t want to talk about my defence, we win together and we lose together.

“We played different combinations, everybody played. We started the league with Mathoho and Daniel Cardoso. After Cardoso, Siyabonga and Booysen.

“Now we played Teenage Hadebe and Eric Mathoho, so we played everybody.”
