Junior Khanye, a former winger for Kaizer Chiefs, has once again become a focal point on social media following the dismissal of the club’s head coach, Molefi Ntseki.
Khanye’s Critique of His Former Club Kaizer Chiefs
The 38-year-old ex-superstar has been a vocal critic of his former club for several years. When Kaizer Chiefs announced Molefi Ntseki as their new coach, Khanye expressed his belief that the club was veering off course. He even predicted before the end of the season that the Amakhosi coach would be dismissed before Christmas.
Khanye questioned the club’s decision to appoint Ntseki as head of technical and youth development while Arthur was made head coach. He expressed his concerns in an interview with FARPost, questioning Ntseki’s experience in nurturing young talent.
Khanye’s Prediction of Ntseki’s Dismissal
After a challenging start to the season, Ntseki had hoped that the new Carling Knockout Cup would mark a turning point for him. However, this was not to be as Kaizer Chiefs were eliminated from the tournament by AmaZulu at the FNB stadium on a Saturday evening. This turned out to be Ntseki’s final game as he was sacked after only three months.
Khanye voiced his opinion on iDiski TV, stating that the 54-year-old should step down. He pointed out that under Ntseki’s leadership, the team had lost the MTN8 and were not winning the league. Following their recent loss in the Carling Knockout Cup, Khanye asserted that Ntseki was leading the team in the wrong direction and should step aside.
