Kingston Nkhatha reflects on Kaizer Chiefs boo-boys

Posted: 17 February 2015 Time: 11:02

Kingston Nkhatha will line up for SuperSport United against his old team Kaizer Chiefs in the Absa Premiership tonight, expecting to hear more of the booing that marred his time at Naturena.

The Zimbabwean, who joined Matsatsantsa during the January transfer window, joined Chiefs in 2012 from Black Leopards and had a torrid time with club supporters.

On one occasion Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter labeled the boo-boys ‘idiots’ and questioned his own future in Naturena.

In the March edition of KICK OFF Magazine, the 29-year-old reveals that he lost sleep because of the boo-boys.

“Even sleeping became difficult because I would be asking myself: ‘What did I do wrong today?’ People were on my case, even though many others in the team also made mistakes, but they were never on them. In the end I had to put them aside and go back to work.

“You end up thinking that maybe these fans are booing because I am a foreigner and they just don’t like me for that.

“But at the same time I would also know that some of them just supported me for being part of the team. The trouble is that when one person starts being negative it rubs off on the rest of the crowd.”

Nkhatha made a great start to life at SuperSport, scoring in a 2-2 draw against his former team Free State Stars


The March edition of KICK OFF Magazine is on sale in major metropolitan areas from Friday, 20 February. In this in-depth and revealing article, find out what Nkhatha has to say about Stuart Baxter, Gordon Igesund and his former Kaizer Chiefs teammates.
