KC is running out of ideas, Shaun Bartlett has nothing to offer.. dis are NFD coaches, I thought dey will bring Maqhoba Mqithi or Middendorp bring his own assistant.— Sbusiso (@Sbusiso56447183) December 10, 2018

It's a mess nje at this club. They're throwing everything into a pot, creating mix-masala stew. The decision on Shaun Bartlett is just as shocking as that of appointing MaZzz-dot-Com. If this club was listed on the JSE, the share price would be crashing to the floor right now. pic.twitter.com/x7kc3FDVlW— Yeğet Kılıç (@yegetkilic) December 10, 2018

Middendorp has a short fuse. Hopefully calls Mathoho the K word and Bartlett takes over...— Gastro (@Gastro_o) December 10, 2018
