Read: Shongwe: That's What I'm Asking Of Chiefs

Let's take a look at what the readers had to say.


Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Abel Shongwe wants Arthur Zwane to be given time and enough support at the club.

Shongwe is encouraged by the club's approach with young players but urged them to give Zwane more good players to work with.

Chacklas also said he's confident that Zwane can take Amakhosi to "greater heights" on the "Shongwe: That's What I'm Asking Of Chiefs" story. 

Here's how the readers responded:

"You can bring jingles HIMSELF but he won't win anything. Sign good players and not those taxi drivers," says crronaldomphoza

"I don't understand why the pressure is on the coach instead on players, because we can see the game, Chiefs is playing, it's just that we don't take our chances that we create. 

"Should the coach go on the pitch and bend Dolly's foot or Du Preez's, so that they can see where the poles are? Chiefs is playing good football, players must take their chances on the box," says xrhino9. 

"Chiefs supporters have to realise that there is a 90% chance that Zwane will not be fired this season, because he isn't here to win the league, but to lay a foundation for a better team.

"He is here to give Chiefs a playing style and identity. I know when they speak to the media they will tell us that we are in it to win it, but that's football language," says thabotouchme. 

"Mangethe has become Nxamalala (Jacob Zuma) of football. Overwhelming support and zero results," says isaacd.digomo. 

Read: What Hunt Asked Ditlhokwe After Chiefs Deal

SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt revealed that he asked outgoing defender Thatayoane 'TT' Ditlhokwe about whether he wanted to leave right away or stay for the rest of the season. 

Hunt is not in favour of sidelining players who have signed pre-contract elsewhere but always to make sure that the player remains committed to the cause until it's time for them to leave.

A couple of readers didn't respond well on the "What Hunt Asked Ditlhokwe After Chiefs Deal" story, with one saying Hunt is using intimidation tactics: 

"Intimidating tactics by Hunt but I strongly believe that one of his former players will live to tell the real story about him," says Shikabala. 

"We all know that if the destination was Sundowns, they were going to do everything in their power to make the deal happened in January," says mogaleramolotja.
