KAIZER Chiefs boss, Kaizer Motaung has apologised to the club’ followers for what he was termed as certain unfortunate comments by the club’s football manager, Bobby Motaung.
Yesterday, Bobby was splitting fire during a press conference where he was to address the issue of the club’s captaincy in which goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune was confirmed as the new captain.
In his statement, Bobby told the reporters that he was not going to resign from the club because it is a family business
Said Motaung the senior (Kaizer) in his statement of apology: “Following the press conference yesterday when the team’s captaincy issue was addressed and at which the football manager made certain unfortunate comments, I would like to convey, with great humility, my heartfelt regret and unreserved apologies at the offence these comments have caused to many of our supporters; people who are at the heart of Kaizer Chiefs.
We are only here because of their support over the years and I would like to assure our supporters that we will never take their support for granted; we sincerely appreciate that Kaizer Chiefs’ success has been due to their unflinching support whether we have won or lost.”
Motaung added: “Like most teams we too have our challenges and because of our profile some of these challenges have to be addressed under the glare of the public eye. The emotive nature of the game of soccer means that, at times, comments are made in the heat of the moment and should be considered in that light. This is however not making light of certain comments which I consider are inappropriate.
We intend to do our utmost to honour the support we receive and I personally would like to reassure our supporters that my personal endeavour is to make them proud of being Kaizer Chiefs fans by winning and by conducting ourselves with grace and humility.”
