Daniel Akpeyi still in Chiefs coach’s plans . The coach is not favoring anyone but the fact is most professional teams select their line-up based on performance on training . There is no way a coach can put you in his team when you are not deserving to be included, because also he will be risking his job .

Why Daniel Akpeyi still in Chiefs coach’s plans ?

“For us, the indication about who’s playing or how we make the decision is from what is happening here on the [training] field,” Middendorp said

“How the guys are performing. We discuss it every morning, day in, day out, at 8am in our meeting.

“We started the Nedbank Cup with Itu Khune at goalkeeper against Royal Eagles. We go to the next round – we did it last year with Bruce Bvuma in the Nedbank Cup, and we are doing it now – and that’s the decision that on Saturday we will play Itu Khune. And nothing else.

“And let me make one statement. Our supporters at Kaizer Chiefs are very intelligent, very smart. They do not get carried away, just because there was a little mistake and we conceded from our defensive work.

“We have seen a fantastic Daniel Akpeyi over months, rescuing us in the final stage, saving a penalty.

“He was a player of the month [for September/October]. And what we have seen now over several months – please guys, everybody who observes Kaizer Chiefs and is following us know exactly what a goalkeeper like Daniel Akpeyi has done here during the run of the season.

“And there is no way in this moment for me, for us, for each and every person in this Chiefs family, to be ignoring it.”

Question marks will remain at Kaizer Chiefs

Fans are pushing Middendorp to include Itumeleng Khune in his line-up but we really forget that it is the coach’s job to select who is playing and who is not .

Do you think we should give the coach the chance to do his job ?
