Kaizer Chiefs are not happy with some of the treatment handed out to the team in Tuesday’s CAF Champions League win in Angola, stating that “the ministry of health in Angola made it an unpleasant trip” for the club.
Chiefs progressed to the CAF Champions League group stages for the first time after beating CD Primeiro de Agosto 1-0 at Estadio 11 de Novembro on Tuesday.
“We are back home Khosi nation after 3 tough days in Angola. The ministry of health in Angola made it an unpleasant trip but our troops were resilient, remained resolute and did not lose focus,” Chiefs said on their official Twitter account.
“A huge word of gratitude goes to Primeiro de Agosto, especially their manager Untonesa Sampaio, who went over and above the call of duty to ensure that he helped as much as they could. Our Angolan opponents were professional and we are grateful for that. Obrigado Agosto!
“Thank you to South Africa’s ambassador to Angola, Mr OE Monareng and his staff for their special visit even though they were barred from engaging or meeting us by the ministry of health and the police in Angola.
“We appreciate the ambassador’s support and hope they deliver the message to the government about the difficulties we encountered.”
