It's safe to say that it hasn't been a vintage season for Kaizer Chiefs. In fact, it's been something of a horror show for the Soweto giants in 2020/21.

In fact, it’s been something of a horror show for the Soweto giants in 2020/21 as they currently lie 10th in the DStv Premiership, a distant 17 points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
And they’re out of the Nedbank Cup after losing to second-tier Richards Bay.
And they are struggling in the CAF Champions League after a 4-0 hiding against Wydad Athletic in Burkina Faso.

To cap off a season to forget for the Amakhosi faithful, Kaizer Chiefs are also the most ill-disciplined team in the Premier Soccer League this season!

No fewer than FIVE players have received red cards this season.

Bernard Parker, Darrel Matsheke, Philani Zulu, Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya and Ramahlwe Mphahlele have all been given their marching orders thus far.
At the other end of the scale, Orlando Pirates, Stellenbosch and TS Galaxy are the most well-behaved teams and haven’t had a single red card to date.
No team in the league has picked up more yellow cards than Orlando Pirates (34), while Chippa United – despite three red cards – have only had 12 cautions in total.
Kaizer Chiefs will next be in action in the CAF Champions League at home against Angolan side Petro de Luanda at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, 6 March.
