Kaizer Chiefs suffered their first home defeat of the DStv Premiership season after 4-1 loss to Royal AM on Saturday evening.
A double-strike from Victor Letsoalo, saw chiefs respond with a goal from Sifiso Hlanti which was short lived as they immediately conceded again through an own goal, before Mfundo Thikazi’s injury-time strike that broke the team’s spirits.
Royal AM, trended on social media for their elaborate celebration by Mamkhize and Chairman son Andile Mpisane.
