Giovanni Solinas: We Need our Fans to Support the Players

Johannesburg — Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas has criticised some of the club’s fans for not supporting the team during matches and urges patience as they look to improve.

Last week, while the team was 3-1 down against Bidvest Wits, fans vocally expressed their discontent at the players’ performances as they called for substitutions in the second half, while booing individuals on the park

“Yes, I know the supporters (expectations), but please, I want also the fans to support the players during the game. We need our fans to support the players,” urged Solinas.

“During the game is not the moment to criticise the players. The players need support during the game. This is a real fan. A real fan is when you support your club and players.

“After, when we finish the game — yes, you can judge the players. But during the game, no. The players need support. (Bernard) Parker is a Kaizer Chiefs player and he needs support. The players in training work hard, believe me, they work hard and put effort in training.”

The Italian tactician bemoaned the congested schedule.

“Yes, I need time to improve [the team]. In my opinion, to improve a football team it requires training sessions, because that’s where you fix the mistakes,” he added.

Meanwhile, Baroka FC head coach Wedson Nyirenda believes his players are improving by each day, following their draw with Kaizer Chiefs.

“It was not going to be easy for us. In the first half Kaizer Chiefs controlled the most parts of the game,” Nyirenda told SuperSport TV. —Sports Reporter/Kick-Off.
