Malajila goal sinks Chiefs title chances

Malajila goal sinks Chiefs title chances
Zimbabwean striker Cuthbert Malajila scored a late second half goal for Maritzburg United who narrowly beat Kaizer Chiefs 1-0 at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Tuesday night to compound problems for Chiefs' caretaker coaches Donald Ace Khuse and Doctor Khumalo.

Malajila showed great skill and instict of a well-trained  and intelligent striker, when he raced to receive a long pass from Shuaib Walters in the 74th minute, before beating the challenges of countryman Jimmy Jambo and Domic Isaac before beating Itumeleng Khune all systems out.

That single goal was enough to give the KZN team all the three points, while the loss of the three points has put serious doubt on Amakhosi's ability to mount a late challenge for the ABSA premiership title.

The caretaker coaches at Chiefs have already both two matches they have taken charge of since the unceremonious departure of out-of-favour Serbian coach Vladimir Vermozovic about a week or so ago.

It looks like Chiefs will regret their decision to rock their own boat before end of the season. It all started with probably a ill-timed meeting between the club bosses and coach VV to discuss his future at the club and to communicate the decision that he won't be coaching Chiefs next season.

It was an open secret that VV would not be at Amakhosi next season after reports emerged from Naturena that the Serbian had lost control of the dressing room after falling out with senior players like veteran midfielder Tinashe Nengomasha following reported training bust-up with some other players like Jimmy Tau.

Informing VV of the club's decision at that time was a sign of good organisation on the part of Chiefs, but not very prudent and strategic given the sensitive time the news came to the coach. Bobby Motaung and his father Kaizer Motaung senior will soon realise that their timing was terrible.

Chiefs are now out of Nedbank and have lost their advantage of having a game in hand. The team does not like they can rise from their sudden deep slumber any time soon and there is no time and space t make any more interim changes for Chiefs bosses.

Malajila will not care what problems Chiefs are facing following the loss of three points. Apart from the points picked up and helping United away from relegation zone, the Zimbabwean is happy to have scored his second goal for the club.
