In an interview with ilovekaizerchiefs.com, Obua sent the passionate plea to AmaKhosi amid growing discontent among its followers.
WHY NTSEKI DESERVES BENEFIT OF DOUBT
The former Cranes skipper explained why the Chiefs’ mentor Molefi Ntseki deserves the benefit of doubt.
“It is very unfortunate for us but we should stay calm,” the Ugandan told ilovekaizerchiefs.com.
“[Ntseki and Arthur [Zwane] are humble and honest persons. He [Ntseki] will get the boys going again.”
WHAT TRIGGERED AN ANGRY REACTION FROM CHIEFS’ FANS
In the latest incident, fans vented their anger on Ntseki on September 20 2023.
A 1-0 loss to SuperSport United triggered the angry reaction from the fans.
The irate supporters pelted Ntseki as he left the field of play at the end of the game at Peter Mokaba Stadium.
Riot police had to step in to protect Ntseki from being hurt.
Even Chiefs Football Manager Bobby Motaung was seen calming down the supporters.
Such ugly scenes are not necessary, as there are noticeable improvements for Chiefs, Obua told ilovekaizerchiefs.com.
TOO EARLY TO PRESS THE PANIC BUTTON
The Kampala-born retired player believes it is too early for Chiefs’ zealots to press the panic button.
“We shouldn’t panic! We should come out in numbers and give the boys more support,” he insisted.
“I believe all will be well in spite of the slow start.”
