Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs have reportedly launched a witch-hunt against its players as the club tries to connect the dots on the players who allegedly leaked the club’s alleged internal woes to the media.

Sunday World reports that Kaizer Chiefs management had a witch-hunt against several players suspected of leaking sensitive information to the media. A close source to the publication has it that several players were questioned, and the club is concerned.

The club has been making headlines for the wrong reasons, from poor run of form to alleged tension and other related issues. Against Itumeleng Khune’s suspension, it was reported that the club was marred with ‘racial tension’, which was taking a toll on the squad’s selection.

However, against the daring allegations, Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Cavin Johnson rubbished the claims and made it known that there was no tension at the club.

Speaking to the media, Johnson said: “Kaizer Chiefs being the brand they are, I think there are a lot of people that look to take this big brand to a lower level because, in reality, there’s no brand that’s as strong as this brand.”

Reports have it that senior Kaizer Chiefs players were also disturbed by the daring allegations and vowed to help the club resolve the problem. No doubt, a string of claims flooded social media in the backdrop of Itumeleng Khune’s suspension.

The 36-year-old was suspended for misconduct. Reports have it that Khune reported for duty while drunk. Against his suspension, it was alleged that two senior players reported Khune to the management for being drunk while on duty.

His suspension implicated a few Kaizer Chiefs players in the mix. However, Khune’s judgment is expected earlier this week, with a hefty fine being a possible penalty.
