Kaizer Chiefs have vowed to overhaul the team ahead of next season.
Chiefs supporters vented their frustration at Steve Komphela and his charges in unruly fashion after the team's 3-0 loss to Chippa United at FNB Stadium on Saturday, a result which severely dented the Nedbank Cup semi-finalists' Absa Premiership title hopes.
Amakhosi's management met the following day to discuss the result and unsavoury scenes, which are expected to land the club in trouble with the PSL's prosecutor.
Chiefs have since released a statement, part of which reads: 'Following last weekend’s result at FNB Stadium, Kaizer Chiefs football manager, technical team and players met on Sunday morning after the game to review the incidents and results of Saturday afternoon. The meeting lasted for five hours.
'They reflected on the performances of the season and acknowledged that the season has not been up to the Kaizer Chiefs standards.
'Following that meeting, the management team met to further discuss and review the matter holistically and plan for the next few games of the current season.
'During the review, we noted that we bolstered the team and brought some good players, but things have not gone our way. It is important for our supporters to note that as management, we are listening to their concerns and share the pain.
'One of the notable decisions from the meeting is that decisive changes will have to be implemented at the end of the season to remedy the situation. At this stage, circumstances do not permit for us to make immediate changes. However, we are looking to have a complete overhaul of the team before the commencement of the new season.'
