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 fixtures – a goalless ‘home’ draw against Chippa United in Durban.

Amakhosi then lost 2-1 to Mamelodi Sundowns and suffered a 1-0 defeat to TS Galaxy this past weekend – both away from home.
Most concerning perhaps for Amakhosi fans is that their team has only found the back of the net on one occasion – and conceded three goals – in their opening three matches.
A look at the latest standings shows that Kaizer Chiefs are currently down in 13th place, ahead of Richards Bay and Royal AM on goal difference.
The Glamour Boys are already a yawning 11 points behind Mamelodi Sundowns, 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 in the very near future.
As reported by The South African website, Ntseki needed a police escort from the field on Sunday at the Mbombela Stadium after disgruntled supporters threw bottles and cans at him.
Kaizer Chiefs last tasted PSL top-flight success in the 2014/15 season and it appears the long wait will have continue to add more silverware to the trophy cabinet at Naturena.
