Another Kaizer Chiefs legend Patrick Mayo shares his opinion on the sacking of Molefi Ntseki, saying the Soweto giants rushed and acted in panic.

Mayo says Chiefs should have kept Ntseki and give him a fair chance as a coach instead of replacing him with interim coach Cavin Johnson.

“For me, it was too soon. They should have at least given him a chance because they didn’t give him enough of a chance,” Mayo told FARPost.

“Four months in charge is not enough for me. They should have given him a fair chance. But Chiefs is a big club and they need results.”
