LISTEN: Kaizer Chips are tasty. Kaizer Chiefs? Not so much.

Listen to the latest Ballz to the Wall podcast!

Kaizer Chiefs launched their own brand of potato chips this week, coming in three different exciting flavours.

Unfortunately their football right now isn’t very tasty at all, with Molefi Ntseki’s side slumping to a 4th DStv Premiership defeat of the season at home to Cape Town City on Tuesday.

Chiefs earned the rather unwanted nickname ‘Kaizer Chips’ over recent years because opposition fans started to regard them as an easy side to snack upon. Eight years without silverware have backed that up.

As much as Chiefs somewhat owned the joke of their nickname by launching potato chips, that is also easily reversed, as City’s social media team did in the wake of their 1-0 win over Chiefs on Tuesday.

They published a hilarious mock up of their own packet of crisps, that are ‘three point flavoured’. Ntseki’s position at Chiefs, on the other hand, could soon become no laughing matter with the Amakhosi head coach already under sever pressure.

In this week’s Ballz on the Wall Podcast, Phakaaathi editor Jonty Mark and Phakaaathi football writers Sibongiseni Gumbi and Tshepo Ntsoelengoe discuss the latest developments at Chiefs, from the chips to the on-field calamities.

We also look ahead to the MTN8 final on Saturday between Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns. Can Pirates bounce back from a disappointing sequence of results that saw them knocked out of the Caf Champions League?

Or will Rulani Mokwena’s Sundowns continue their imperious dominance of the local game? You can listen to the latest Ballz to the Wall Podcast right here:
