Former Kaizer Chiefs winger Junior Khanye has lashed out at Gavin Hunt’s Kaizer Chiefs after they stumbled to a 1-1 draw against Bloemfontein Celtic.
The draw left Chiefs in 13th place with seven points after eight games. Chippa United and Black Leopards have a point less while Maritzburg United are on two points at the bottom of the log.
“Kaizer Chiefs looked much better in the first half as compared to other games but the quality is not there. That’s the reality that there quality is not there,” Khanye said on iDiski TV.
“If there was quality they should have led by four goals. We are talking about composure, being sure about what they were doing, playing in departments they should have scored four goals.
“Pound for pound with the name and brand Kaizer Chiefs against Celtic, there is history at Chiefs.
“Celtic were better than Chiefs, look at the second half. Kaizer Chiefs couldn’t even jump in their own half. There is love [for Chiefs] and let’s be realistic.”
Khanye also had words about Hunt’s team lineup which saw Daniel Cardosa at left back at Ngezana at right back.
“He [Hunt] has [Siphosake] Ntiya-Ntiya on the bench who is left-footed and he plays right-footed Cardoso at left-back,” said Khanye.
“When they [Celtic] pressed Cardoso it was always a problem and they earned square passes from that. How can you play Ngezana at right-back and he had no speed? Celtic realised it and they attacked through him the whole game. He was the weakest link.”
