  • Daniel Matsau seems unimpressed with the Kaizer Chiefs fanbase this season
  • The former striker has blamed some supporters for the club's attacking issues
  • Matsau feels strikers are scared to take risks on the pitch because of reactions

Kaizer Chiefs legend, Daniel Matsau, has blamed misbehaving fans for the club's recent attacking problems.

Amakhosi have struggled in front of goal this season, managing just 19 goals in 21 league matches so far.

The club's supporters have been very vocal in recent seasons amid the Chiefs' current trophy drought.

Supporters have continued to voice their disappointment, often leaving the club in trouble with the league’s disciplinary committee.

Speaking on the club's lingering problems, former attacker, Matsau, stated that the pressure from fans is definitely affecting their strikers.

He told Kick Off that the outrage from the fans is resulting in Chiefs players being too afraid to take any risks when attempting any goals.

"[Chiefs strikers] are afraid to make mistakes. It’s difficult for a player who is afraid to make mistakes to shoot from outside the box.
"At the moment, Chiefs players are even scared to miss chances. Everyone wants to be on the safe side and say, 'It’s not me who missed the goal; I did give him a pass and he missed'."

Chiefs missed several chances in their goalless draw with Cape Town City on Saturday, March 30.

They remain seventh on the Premier Soccer League table with 30 points from 21 matches. Mamelodi Sundowns seem to be edging closer to the title as the Bucs have garnered 46 points in 18 matches.

Stellenbosch are second on the log with 35 points, while Sekhukhune United, Orlando Pirates, and SuperSport United occupy the third, fourth, and fifth positions with 33 points each.

Pitso Mosimane linked with Kaizer Chiefs

Sports Brief earlier reported that Chiefs want Pitso Mosimane and Percy Tau to reunite with them next season as they try to rebuild ahead of the 2024/25 campaign.

The Amakhosi management seem eager to bring glory days back to the club after a turbulent few years which has seen them finish trophyless for a decade now.

However, some Chiefs fans believe there is no way the DStv Premier League club can afford Mosimane, who signed a four-month term with Abha Club in January.
