Kaizer Chiefs Coach Giovanni Solinas Blasted For Benching Zim Star Defender Teenage Hadebe!

Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas is under-fire for benching Zimbabwe international star defender Teenage Hadebe as the team's stuttering form continues.

Kaizer Chiefs fans took to social media to air their frustrations over coach Giovanni Solinas's choices of benching Hadebe (23) who is currently flourishing at international level with Zimbabwe Warriors.

Many were left disappointed not to see the Zimbabwean central defender in the starting line up of the team's last match against Chippa United after putting out a solid performance in his second league appearance of the season for Chiefs against Black Leopards in the previous week. Below are some of the comments made by Kaizer Chiefs fans on twitter criticising Hadebe benching:

will dismantle hands down again.Our coach is clueless I don't believe he learned a lesson in the first Derby.Teenage Hadebe played his heart out against but he was on the bench against why??I hope Bobby is watching".- @AlphaMnomiya

"Mid season no idea what the Chiefs best team is worse with central defence. Teenage Hadebe is a masterpiece but is benched for flimsy senseless excuses of fatigue. How will this coach cope with CAF tournament plus league. The sooner he leaves the better"-

"Our coach is an idiot. Teenage Hadebe had such a fantastic game against Black Leopards. Why is he dropped today? Why change the back 4 every game

"It just don't make sense. Teenage Hadebe was also brilliant in the midweek game. The lack of continuity from Solinas will go against him one day

 We are playing with bench warmers when deserving players are made to warm the bench. I suspect Mabedi still harbours the thoughts of being the head coach hence he is letting things fall apart. But he must go with Solanis-

The Zimbabwean international who sustained an injury during 2018/19 pre-season, has made only 3 appearances for Amakhosi in all competitions this season, despite having fully recovered in August and has had outstanding performances at international level with Zimbabwe Warriors who are on the verge of qualifying to next year's AFCON finals in Cameroon topping group G with 8 points from 4 matches.

With 13 games played, Chiefs are currently fifth on the Absa Premiership log standings and have played more games than seven of the other top eight clubs, suggesting that they will need to pull up their socks if they’re to mount any sort of title challenge in 2018/19.
