Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune have join his voice on Ernst Middendorp returns to Kaizer Chiefs to replace Giovanni Solinas as coach.
Khune stated his fears, saying that he expected the management to sign a different coach and not the former Chiefs coach.
“the idea of seeing Middendorp as Chiefs coach came as a surprise to us the squad, no one saw that coming and that was not the expectations of the players, our fear now is for us to look like people that have sold dog to buy a monkey”
Twitter came alive with excitement after the departure of Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas was announced on Friday, December 7 2018. But the joy quickly fizzled out when fans were introduced, or rather reintroduced, to his replacement.
Solinas joined Chiefs in July, but didn’t gain favour with supporters as the team was kicked out of two cup competitions and failed to impress in league games.
His dismissal comes after Chiefs lost three of their last four matches.
Shortly after the exit of Solinas and Mabedi started trending on social media, Chiefs tweeted another bombshell – that Ernst Middendorp was returning to coach the troubled team.
