Kaizer Chiefs go out of CAF with a whimper

Posted: 27 April 2014 Time: 19:47

Kaizer Chiefs were knocked out of the CAF Confederation Cup after a 1-0 defeat to ASEC Mimosas in Abidjan on Sunday.

Chiefs travelled to the Ivory Coast with a squad of only 13 players and placed assistant coach Doctor Khumalo in charge as Stuart Baxter remained at home to prepare for his side's next League match.

There were not many changes to the starting eleven that lost 2-1 in the first leg at home as Morgan Gould captained the side.

ASEC had an early penalty appeal waved away in an open start to the game before Rusike rattled the woodwork in a show of intent. Chiefs' fringe players looked hungry to impress in the heat of Abidjan.

However, despite the Ivorian side showing their visitors respect, Chiefs were unable to break down a stubborn ASEC defence and failed to register many shots on target in the first half.

In the second half ASEC striker Foba Stevens Koffi went close with one effort and sent another shot wide as he looked to break the deadlock.

Khumalo eventually used one of his two substitutes named on the bench when Lorenzo Gordinho came on for Siyabonga Nkosi, who was dictating the play in the first half.

It was a game short of goalmouth action as Chiefs had 10 goal attempts but were unable to make the ASEC goalkeeper work, while Reyaad Pieterse was also having a quiet day at the office.

However, Koffi got the goal he was looking for late in the game after receiving the ball in the six-yard area and placing a shot past Pieterse. The linesman had his flag up as he scored, but the referee awarded the goal.

The goal ended the tie as Chiefs lost 3-1 on aggregate and were knocked out of Africa.

Chiefs XI: Pieterse, Moleko, Mtsweni, Gould (c), Bukenya, Baloyi, Maluleka, Cele, Nkosi (Gordinho 70'), Rusike, Masango

Bench: Khuzwayo, Gordinho
Coach: Doctor Khumalo

This team is a waste in Caf competitions. They give SA football a bad image. Next time they should not take part

This kaizer thiefs thing is a disgrace to the footballing fraternity, a  bunch of overated cheeseboy losers from some national road in Soweto. I wish CAF can ban them for good to save us the embarrassment everytime they feature in Africa, dispeakable.

"The linesman had his flag up as he scored, but the referee awarded the goal". Hmm, interesting comment.  Perhaps the linesman was unsighted and the referee was better positioned?  It would be interesting to view thee goal......not that it will change anything/  Reminds me of one Jean Bidel Diramba who is still a swear word in Zambia

Why should they not take part next time? Better yet, who should replace them should they happen to qualify for CAF tournaments?

If a team beats you at home in the first leg, you cannot take a weaker team without a head coach, with only two subs for the second leg. What bullshit are this Zebras doing

There's no Lwandile Mfiki @CAF my man. That's the only reason why they don't perform.

Beerginner Tshinyiwaho  But in football, you win some and loose some. No?  The same Pirates and Sundowns have yet to show anything for their better job (but for Pirates's good showing in 1995).  Chiefs have won a continental competition as well, albeit many moons ago (2001).  I do not recall Sundowns ever winning anything at a continental level.........despite their doing a better job. As for Supersport, the less said about them, the better at least at a continental level (what is the furthest they have ever progressed in continental tourneys?). What has happened to Chiefs is no different from what has happened to other teams.  They have lost, which is part and parcel of what happens in a soccer game.  Ask Manure United.
