With Kaizer Chiefs struggling somewhat to flourish in the league, their head coach Stuart Baxter has pleaded with fans to back the team.
Amakhosi have triumphed only once, drawn three, and lost two of the six league games they have played in this season.
Despite having bolstered their squad with new signings ahead of the start of this campaign but it seems like they can’t get it right.
However, Baxter is optimistic about the future seeing the positive signs in his team although they’re still in construction.
“I hope the supporters stick with us and they understand the journey that we are on,” he told the club’s media department.
“I think there is enough happening to encourage us to believe this could be very good if we can just shift that ten percent.”
The Scottish was the last coach to lift silverware with the Glamour Boys in 2015 in his first stint with them and aims to bring back glory days to Naturena in the long run.
“In the bigger picture, the supporters are always interested in results now. That has been going on for eight seasons now, everybody wants it,” he added.
“What we’re trying to do, we’re trying to say let’s peel back the desire and the dreams and the hopes on social media and of our supporters.
“Let’s pull back and find the strategy that will not just give us one cup now, but that will set us up at the top again for a longer period. That sometimes takes a little bit longer and in today’s football people want to avoid waiting.
“I would say to the supporters, be a little bit patient, enjoy what we can provide right now. Just know that when we arrive, we’re not arriving to stay for five minutes.
“When we arrive with the team, and we have the strategy and culture back with the club, then we will be staying around for a long, long time.”
