Kaizer Chiefs has revealed it’s in the process of implementing changes to its structures, following a dismal showing last season.
The club registered its worst league finish in the PSL era before crashing to an embarrassing Nedbank Cup final defeat to first division outfit TS Galaxy.
Following the underwhelming performances, the club issued out a statement on Friday night, admitting it had fallen well short of what fans had cone to be accustomed to.
“This past season has been an unacceptable one in which we have fallen well short of the standards we set for ourselves.
“We have let ourselves down and we know we have bitterly disappointed and failed to meet the expectations of our supporters and stakeholders.”
Amakhosi last lifted a trophy back in 2015, claiming a fourth PSL title, with current Bafana coach Stuart Baxter at the helm.
The club acknowledged its barren spell, stating that management is determined to remedy the situation and “act decisively”.
“We are using this off-season to implement the changes and to map the way forward with a new approach for next season, based on the lessons learnt.
“The rebuilding process for the 2019/20 season is already underway and all the necessary actions will be taken to ensure we restore this iconic institution to where it rightfully belongs – at the summit of South African football.”
The club says it has appointed a new board of directors, and is set to bolster its technical team and make new signings in the offseason.
“We thank all our supporters for your continued love and passion through good and difficult times. Fueled by this support, we will use this time to reflect and go back to the spirit, ethos and legacy on which the club was founded and ensure we again play a leadership role in the football world on and off the pitch.”
