Kaizer Chiefs’ hopes of winning the 2023/24 DStv Premiership title appear to be over after just 270 minutes of football.
The Soweto giants have picked up just ONE point from their opening three matches – a goalless home draw against Chippa United.
Amakhosi then lost 2-1 to Mamelodi Sundowns and suffered a 1-0 defeat to TS Galaxy this past weekend.
Most worrying perhaps for Amakhosi fans is that their team has only scored one goal – and conceded three – in their opening three matches.
A look at the updated log shows that Kaizer Chiefs are currently down in a lowly 13th place ahead of Richards Bay and Royal AM on goal difference.
The Glamour Boys are already a yawning 11 points behind Masandawana, albeit having played one fewer match than the defending league champions.
Newly appointed coach Molefi Ntseki’s job could well be on the line if results don’t improve rapidly.
As reported by The South African website, Ntseki needed a police escort from the field on Sunday at the Mbombela Stadium after unhappy supporters threw bottles and cans at him.
Kaizer Chiefs last tasted PSL top-flight success in the 2014/15 season and it appears the wait will continue to add silverware to the trophy cabinet at Naturena.
