Chief’s Woes Continues

Kaizer Chiefs is continuing to see flames in the field of football. This is after SuperSport United collected all three points in the DSTV Premiership league game on Tuesday night at Lucas Moripe Stadium.

In an unfashionable manner, the experienced and once the Mzansi’s finest goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune  made two similar mistakes in two consecutive games. Last week, against Black Leopards, he erroneously gave away possession when he was passing Philani Zulu to Ovidy Karuru, who scored during a 2-2 in 2 all draw Leopards

As if Khune was done, he did the same error when he was passing Zulu against United whereby it resulted in a goal by Bradley Grobler to open the score.

Both Khune’s errors happened when the scores were 0 all. Then the opponents got the opening goals.

It has become Amakhosi’s coach headache as to drop Khune for Daniel Akpeyi or not. Akpeyi was dropped after he scored 5 goals against Orlando Pirates in the MTN8 Semi-finals. However, Khune now scored 10 league goals in 5 games. He is yet to keep a clean sheet.

The Tshwane side got a second goal from Sipho Mbule who received an assistant from Grobler in the second half. Cheifs’s woes continued after Zulu was given a straight red card after a career threatening injury from behind on Gamphani Lungu’s left leg.

A lifeline was shown as Chiefs’ Lebohang Manyama converted a penalty on the 86 minutes as Luke Fleurs committed foul on Dumisani Zuma in the box to make 2-1 score.
