Kaizer Chiefs have vowed to take up a different approach in the new season as they released an official statement on their 2018/19 campaign.
The club have faced plenty of criticism in recent weeks with regards to the senior team’s performances as well as the impact of coach Ernst Middendorp, while Football Manager Bobby Motaung is not a popular figure amongst the Amakhosi faithful.
Management have since reflected there upon and have thus indicated their intention to implement wholistic changes to the technical team, playing personnel and football department as a whole during the off-season break, as they look to rebuild once again for 2019/20.
The club statement reads:
'This past season has been an unacceptable one in which we have fallen well short of the standards we set for ourselves.
We have let ourselves down and we know we have bitterly disappointed and failed to meet the expectations of our supporters and stakeholders.
It has been four barren seasons now and as Kaizer Chiefs management we will do all we possibly can to remedy the situation and to act decisively.
We are using this off-season to implement the changes and to map the way forward with a new approach for next season, based on the lessons learnt.
The rebuilding process for the 2019/20 season is already underway and all the necessary actions will be taken to ensure we restore this iconic institution to where it rightfully belongs – at the summit of South African football.
We are bolstering the technical team, the playing personnel and strengthening the football department in preparation for the new season.
The club has recently gone through some restructuring and has appointed new members to the board of directors. The board will play a critical role in our way forward.
We thank all our supporters for your continued love and passion through good and difficult times. Fuelled by this support, we will use this time to reflect and go back to the spirit, ethos and legacy on which the club was founded and ensure we again play a leadership role in the football world on and off the pitch.'
