Kaiser Motaung Jr understands that it is difficult for Kaiser Chiefs supporters to see the light at the end of the tunnel under the current circumstances.

But he believes that there is some progress in the restoration of the Amahoshi team.
Motaung Jr says recent results have overshadowed the positives for the Chiefs.
Zvane is under huge pressure after losing last weekend to the Golden Arrows in Polokwane.
He had to be escorted off the field along with a group of fans chanting slogans calling for his execution.
This year alone, the Chiefs have lost four games, drawn one and won two, including the Nedbank Cup game.
“It’s a no brainer. We’re unhappy that we’ve lost eight games and are in fifth place,” Motaung Jr. said on Monday.
At their title sponsor Vodacom headquarters in Midrand on Monday, the Chiefs hosted members of the media in preparation for the weekend’s Soweto derby.
“We are a big team and we are expected to succeed. But having said that, there are so many games this season where we wonder why we haven’t scored full points.
“We have created huge chances this season. We didn’t take them. Football can be a very simple game…
“To win, you need to score and close the back door. I think it’s very clear to the technical staff what they need to work on.
Management plays its part
“And for our part, as leadership, we must work in areas where we see fit and contribute to make a difference.
“It’s not a good situation. But at the same time there were a lot of positive things.
“We are sitting with 18-year-old Mduduzi Shabalala, who scored only yesterday (Sunday).
“He has a huge talent and that says a lot about our academy and hiring plans.
“We had to integrate them into the first team. I think that in the future, the only way to fix this is to achieve results and change the course of events,” added Motaung Jr.
Lots of positives
The issue of Zwane’s inexperience, which is a big topic among supporters, was also brought up by Motaung Jr.
“If I were to ask you what experience is… Anyone who has experience got it by doing their job.
“As for the management, and this is from our board of directors and the chairman… We have a young coach at the helm, and our task is to support him with the necessary resources.
“Support him with the right players, create the right conditions for him to succeed.
“Sitting in fifth position is not what we want. But if you look at the short time as a substitute in the football he plays, that’s a positive thing.

“Now is not the time to talk about the positives, because our fans want results, they want trophies.
“And this is an object at the end of the day. The technical staff is hard at work and knows the areas they need to work on,” the Chiefs football director said.
