Chiefs Used To Be 1-0 Up Before The Game Started, They Are Now A Small Team - Former Bafana Coach

They last won a trophy in 2015, it has been six year now and former Bafana Bafana coach believes that they are no longer a big team since they have turned into an ordinary team, they are no longer feasome, it is not scary anymore to play against them.

Former AmaZulu coach Clive The Dog Barker believes that no team fears Kaizer Chiefs like teams used to anymore since they are not the same anymore, he says playing against them was every team's wish because they k ew thst the atmosphere is going to be buzzing, there is going to be a great game even though you go to that game knowing that they are already 1-0 down.

The 1996 AFCON winner says it is sad to see a club that used to be big like Amakhosi turning into a small team, they no longer dominate as they used to, he feels they are not the Chiefs they used to know.

“If you were playing in a cup match, you always wanted to play Chiefs because they gave you a good atmosphere, but the control and the domination in the Chiefs players is no longer there. So that has changed. In the past, you were one-nil down to Chiefs before it even started. That has turned around over the years. Which is a sad thing because this is not a good Kaizer Chiefs side. They no longer dominate as they used to," Karker said.

Amakhosi came close to winning the CAF Champions League last season, but they were unlucky to have lost 3-0 to Pitso Mosimane's Al Ahly, they nearly made history and joined the likes of Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns since those are the only teams in South Africa that have won the Champions League.

They brought back Stuart Baxter hoping that he will help the team reclaim the glory since he is the last coach to win a trophy for them, but things are not going well for them, he has so far managed to win just one game out of four, drew one and lost two, which is not a good start for a team that desperately needs to win something, they are already out of the MTN 8, meaning they now have two trophies to try play for, the Nedbank Cup and the DStv Premiership.
