Acornbush coach issues written apology to Chiefs

Acornbush United coach MacDonald Makhubedu has written a formal apology to Kaizer Chiefs for his derogatory remarks against the club.

Makhubedu lambasted Amakhosi players for “not showing up” during their 2-1 loss in the Nedbank Cup match on Sunday.

His post-match rant was not taken kindly by Chiefs coach Steve Komphela, who called on the PSL to take action against him.

Makhubedu has since issued an apology to Komphela and Chiefs for his remarks.

Here is Makhubedu’s written apology to Chiefs:

Dear all

I (Macdonald Makhubedu, Head Coach) would like to share my sincere apologies for my post-match interview comments against Kaizer Chiefs, SAFA, NSL, Nedbank, Media, Steve Khompela (sic), Kaizer Chiefs technical team and football supporters. I might have made the comments at the time not realising the damage I am causing to everyone. My behaviour was extremely inappropriate, immature, and lacked the respect you deserve.

Hence I request you to accept my sincere apologies. I hope that we can put this matter behind us. I look forward to work with you and learning again.


M. Makhubedu
