Former Kaizer Chiefs star and now football pundit, Junior Khanye has responded to Chiefs coach, Arthur Zwane’s “I won’t go down to the level of Junior Khanye” comments.
Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane took a swipe at the flamboyant soccer commentator who has consistently been critical of the coach and current Amakhosi style of play.
Khanye’s controversial observations on football often attracts the attention of supporters on social media, particularly on Twitter and Facebook.
Zwane was asked about Khanye’s criticisms of Chiefs and himself. The coach responded as follows.
“It is his opinion, which I respect as a former player,” Zwane told the media at the Nedbank Cup quarter final draw at SuperSport.
“But who am I to go down to the level of Junior Khanye, if you understand what I’m saying? This is football, I respect everyone’s opinion.”
“I am not too worried because when you lead as a coach, you lead players who you see are trying hard and doing their best all the time to win games.
“Sometimes if the results are not forthcoming. We blow hot and cold. Sometimes when we think we have momentum, then there is a break. If you remember, before or just after [the Soweto derby win against Orlando] Pirates, there was a break and that broke our momentum.”
ThisIsFootball.Africa spoke to Junior Khanye, about Zwane’s response to his comments on Chiefs and the coach.
“Sure, sure my brother, uhm no comment, no comment, I won’t say anything to Arthur Zwane, I’ve got no comment for Arthur Zwane and I won’t say anything about Arthur Zwane, no comment,” the iDiskiTV pundit told ThisIsFootball.Africa.
Chiefs will continue to push for that second position and are preparing for Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday night, 20:00.
