After Kaizer Chiefs’ championship winning game against Polokwane City which they won with a convincing 4-1 score, rumours surfaced that Bobby Motaung lashed out on Itumeleng Khune and he was blocked from celebrating with the team, “Itu came out smiling and greated bobby but there was a silent treatment from the manager” – source close to the team.

We all know there’s a contract issue between the two parties which Bobby thinks the demands from Khune’s agents is unreasonable and that might have been the cause.

Yesterday after chiefs’ victory against Mamelodi Sundowns, we saw Bobby and Itumeleng holding each other in smiles as they waved the peace sign in the air celebrating their record win.

Has peace been found between khune and motaung or were they giving the supporters a wrong picture.

Congratulations to the champions

Bobby and uncommited Khune reportedly not on good terms

Bobby Motaung and Itumeleng Khune's relationship has hit a low

Bobby Motaung and Itumeleng Khune’s relationship has reportedly hit a low

Itumeleng Khune seems to be ready to close Kaizer Chiefs as a chapter from his book, Bobby Motaung is very sour about the whole ordeal. The thought of losing Khune clearly brings a bitter taste to his taste buds as he has already started excluding him in team affiars.

According to Sunday World, Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung ordered security to block Khune from running onto the pitch to celebrate with the team after the final whistle.

“They blocked him before he could come out of the tunnel. They told him Bobby said he must not go anywhere near the pitch,” a Sunday World source said.

It is alleged that Motaung feels the 27-year-old goal-minder, who is yet to extend his Chiefs contract, is no longer committed to the club.

Chiefs and Khune’s representative Dan Lichman have yet to reach an agreement regarding the goalkeeper’s immediate future.

Bobby Motaung did however give clarity on the matter, stating that there is absolutely no beef between himself and Khune.

There was no celebration by players on the pitch as fans took over, in the dressing room players congratulated each other and the coach (Stuart Baxter) froze the celebration as the team has three more games to finish.

Khune is serving a red card suspension surely we all know he can’t enter the field as Premier Soccer League DC just found our coach guilty of invading the pitch while on suspension.

Shame on you Sunday World for making headlines with a complete fabrication.

CHIEFS REQUIRE A DRAW TO WIN THE LEAGUE

By Tebogo Molekoa

With a 13 points lead at the top of the log, Kaizer Chiefs  have put one hand on the trophy and they have done that with four games to spare as they are left with four games to be crowned champs, however with football being unpredictable it might happen that the current champions Mamelodi Sundowns still believe they can retain though it will take a miracle from them and hoping chiefs fail to collect maximum points in their next amakhosi games.

With the 2 teams still to play each other chiefs doesn’t need to win its games in order to be crowned champions they only need a point against Sundowns then the race is over even if downs win all remaining and chiefs lose all remaining, the question is will chiefs take the league against sundowns or before meeting Sundowns on the 29th at Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium  in Attridgeville.

However if you have been supporting chiefs since the 80’s you wouldn’t be celebrating knowing that chiefs once threw it away from the similar situation, when they needed 1 point from 4 games under the leadership of Ted Dumitru. They went to lose all four games and giving jomo cosmos the championship, however the situation is different this time around as the men from naturena have lost just 2 games and conceded 11 goals from 26 games its unlikely that the chiefs will fall before the promised land of milk and honey. PSL Pretoria or Phefeni soccer league?
