It’s not a good time to be a Kaizer Chiefs fan.
The club are trending on social media despite not even being involved in any action this past weekend.
The Amakhosi are in the headlines after their bitter rivals, Orlando Pirates, lifted the Nedbank Cup trophy.
As noted by iDiskiTimes, the Buccaneers beat Sekhukhune United 2-1 in dramatic fashion to lift their second trophy of the season. Unfortunately, Chiefs are now being trolled online for failing to secure any silverware for another season.
The Amakhosi finished fifth in the DStv Premiership in Arthur Zwane’s first season in charge of the club.
As noted by Goal, the Amakhosi lost 12 games in the league and conceded more goals than they scored. Chiefs only netted 32 goals but conceded 33.
To make matters worse, some Chiefs fans were also spotted at the Nedbank Cup final, cheering on Sekhukhune. Their actions, and the club’s poor season, have now seen them trend on social media.
Here's what users had to say about the club:
“Sekhukhune, Sundowns and Kaizer chiefs took 16 points from us, and we took R16.5m from them. You can't spend 16 points.”
“The last time Kaizer Chiefs won a trophy, Jacob Zuma was still a president.”
“Of the traditional big three of South African football, one won the league for the 6th consecutive time and with a big margin. The other won 2 cups and finished second. And then there's you, @KaizerChiefs, finishing 5th with a negative goal difference.”

“Kaizer Chiefs are destroying everything they touch now they destroyed Sekhukhune... they never win anything.”
