Arthur Zwane is displeased with Kaizer Chiefs’ defeat, but he is not ready to give up. Last weekend’s DStv Premiership match at FNB Stadium saw Amakhosi lose by one goal to Sekhukhune United. It was Chiefs’ third game in a row without three points.

Chiefs were celebrating their 53rd anniversary, which made the loss even more painful for the fans. If Amakhosi had won, they would have closed the massive gap created by Mamelodi Sundowns, who currently lead the DStv Premiership.

“I am disappointed because it is the day of Chiefs’ establishment. I thought we’d make our chairman, Dr. Kaizer Motaung, happy,” Zwane stated following the game.

Despite everything that has happened to the Chiefs, their coach remains optimistic. “These are football things. We’ll be back stronger in the next game because we created so many opportunities. I’d be concerned if we did not perform well,” Zwane, who is under pressure, stated. Chiefs are still in fourth place after 15 games.

They won seven, drew three, and lost five games. Its defeat significantly reduced its chances of competing with Sundowns, who defeated Chippa United 2-1 at Loftus Stadium on Tuesday.

“This is not the end of us. We will continue to push forward. This season still has a lot of games left.

“You never know, football has its wonders, we could win the game after this,” Zwane said. Amakhosi will face AmaZulu in a DStv Premiership match tomorrow at 7pm at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, which is expected to be a tense affair.

AmaZulu defeated Chiefs at home before eliminating them at Moses Mabhida Stadium in the second leg of the MTN8 semi-finals. Zwane’s team travels to Durban in search of vengeance, but it won’t be easy because AmaZulu are looking for a win after losing to Royal AM in the derby last week. Both coaches are under pressure, and it is possible that the coach of the team that loses on Friday will be shown the door.
