Itumeleng Khune has pleaded with Kaizer Chiefs fans not to lose hope in the current project of head coach Arthur Zwane.
This comes after Zwane was booed by a section of the Chiefs fans after Amakhosi lost 3-2 to Golden Arrows in Polokwane last weekend.
“All I have to say to our fans, or our supporters I should say, yes, we’ve been asking for patience, but again they need to understand there have been different coaches in the past seasons because most of the time it’s what they recommend to the management,” said Khune during a media conference ahead of Saturday’s Soweto derby against Orlando Pirates at the FNB Stadium.
“I don’t know how they [management] make the decisions but the club has delivered on certain coaches that the fans or supporters have recommended, and the number of players that they’ve wanted to come in.
“So, everyone who has come in needs time to settle. We understand that Kaizer Chiefs is not the [kind of] club to wait, it’s a club where we have to play every match to win, every [piece of] silverware we need to challenge for.
“But again, when you have players that are new in the setup, they don’t understand the setup, it’s our role and responsibility as leaders and players who have been there for long to guide them.
“But it’s never that easy and it won’t take just one day for that to turn around, it will take quite some time.”
