Ex-Chiefs Star launches Scathing attack on Club's Players- They are just playing for money

Former Kaizer Chiefs star has launched a scathing attack on current Amakhosi squad after a poor start to the season.

Amakhosi have started very bad this season after the club was knocked out of the MTN8.

The club has also won once in six league games and sitting on bottom half of the log table.

Patrick Mayo who played for the club between 2003-2007 feels like the Amakhosi jersey is to heavy for some of the players at the club.

Speaking to Kickoff magazine Mayo said the current players do not have heart because their generation used to love the badge and they fought for it.

"But when it comes to them they don't have that heart. They are just playing for money," he said.

He added that during their time they did not earn much so they used to fight for the badge instead.

He said that as a football player there is always a pressure, even if you walk in the mall the pressure is there and you have to learn to play under those situations and has emphasized that the Chiefs Jersey is too heavy for the players.

Mayo said that they used to take pressure because if they lose two or three games they would not be able to go to the mall because they would get all kinds of insults from the supporters.

Amakhosi will return in action this Saturday when they host Chippa United at FNB Stadium.
