Mzansi has gone for the jugular, attacking goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune and coach Gavin Hunt after Chiefs lost their last game of the month on Sunday night, finishing February without a single win.
Twitter has been littered with videos of Khune’s blapses on the field after Amakhosi were handed a 4-0 defeat by Wydad Casablanca in the Champions League group match in Burkina Faso.
Why did Khune run inside the net instead of approaching the attack 🤔🤔🤔 https://t.co/AwRqssoPt6

Truth be told, Itu Khune, Mzansi's finest is not so fine anymore. Sadly Akpei is not much better either. Chiefs concede 4 away to Casablanca. Mphahlele is honestly a liability no matter where he plays in the KC defense. #CAFCL #KaizerChiefs #Livestream pic.twitter.com/n4BF0gGSYB

Khune was outplayed on several occasions, raising the ire of Chiefs fans who have again called for his head.
"So Khune has conceded 18 goals in 12 games this season 😳"
"Gavin Hunt cannot be a bad coach overnight…
Those overrated players need to be fired."

Loyalists put the blame on coach Hunt, hoping to offer a reprieve for their once-trusted goalie.

Truly Speaking as much as we wanna blame Khune, that man was playing as a sweeper as well, even Akpeyi wasn't gonna save us, our defense is dead dead, at this moment not even @RealPitso1 can save Kaizer Chiefs, that team is broken from Management pic.twitter.com/RsCwxfRHfT

"Gavin Hunt is the only coach who has never been fired by a club in the history of South African soccer"
