The Glamour Boys are flying high at the moment and fans should be satisfied with their progress, but Kingston Nkhatha was on the receiving end of boos on Monday as Chiefs ran out 3-1 winners over Bidvest Wits, and Khune admits it is a bitter pill to swallow when fans boo their own team.
"First, I want to thank our supporters for their undying support, but I would really like to ask them not to be hard or harsh on the players.
"We have, in the past few games, experienced the fans booing some of the players. We would appreciate it if you guys could be more patient with the players and stop booing them," Khune says.
Khune was backed by Tefu Mashamaite, who told KickOff.com it saddens the players to see their fans turn against their own team.
"Like the captain has already highlighted, there was a bad picture in Mbombela where our supporters were booing one of our players [Nkhatha] and I think it is uncalled for," he says.
"I just want them to come support us and be 100 percent behind us, even when things are not going okay. At the end of the day, we want to deliver good things to them and we can do with their total support," Mashamaite says.
Nkhatha has scored two goals for Chiefs since joining from Black Leopards.
