Kaizer Chiefs fans don’t know where to hide. The mighty Amakhosi took a crushing 4-0 defeat at the hands of Mamelodi Sundowns last Saturday.

As The South African website reported on Saturday evening, the flood gates opened as early as the sixth minute. Siyabonga Ngezana gifted Gaston Sirino a lollipop of a chance to make it 1-0.

Coach Arthur Zwane later described the moment as ‘manna from heaven.’

More damage came from Peter Shalulile (two goals) and Abubeker Nassir on 76 minutes to make it 4-0.

There is so much to dissect from the Loftus disaster if you’re a fan of the Glamour Boys, and so much to be proud of if your team is Kabo Yellow.

  1. Siyabonga Ngezana is unfortunately error-prone and will need significant support to regain his confidence
  2. If Yusuf Maart doesn’t have a good game, Chiefs don’t have a good game
  3. Sundowns do not have to play well to win 4-0
  4. Sundowns’ new Ethiopian striker Abubeker Nassir is likely to become a PSL star
  5. With Ashley Du Preez, Amakhosi need to sign a striker, quick and all.

Meanwhile, the football has to continue on the pitch. Zwane’s side will train for a full week before traveling to Durban to face Richards Bay on Saturday, while Sundowns will journey to Sekhukhune United on the same day.
