Former Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana player Patrick Mayo says the club’s supporters are right to demand a trophy because it has been a while since they saw one land in Soweto and it is so disappointing for a club like Kaizer Chiefs to go through an extended trophy drought. Amakhosi have last won major silverware back in the 2014/15 season under their current coach Stuart Baxter in his first stint at the club which was more successful when compared to this one.
Kaizer Chiefs’ trophyless run was seen continuing after they failed to beat Al Ahly in the CAF Champions League final in July of this year, a trophy the club had hopes it will end their long drought. The Glamour Boys have again missed out on the first trophy of this current season, which is the MTN8 after being knocked out early in the quarter-finals by now finalists of the tournament Mamelodi Sundowns.
Mayo, though, believes that the experience from the Africa’s competition (Caf Champions League) should have helped Kaizer Chiefs to do much better in the DStv Premiership as well but they are seen struggling for positive results.
“The supporters are used to winning at least a cup or two in a single season, they are not used to not winning, not even a single trophy in three seasons or four seasons in a row,” Mayo explained
“So I won’t say the supporters are unfair, they are right to demand that Kaizer Chiefs must win a trophy."
“They did well in the (CAF) Champions League, I don’t know what made them not to do the same thing they did in Champions League in the DStv premiership."
“The players should have that experience in the DStv premiership and perform the way they were performing in the Champions League.”
Kaizer Chiefs have seen a reshuffling of coaches over the season but never found the luck of getting back to trophy winning mentality.
