Dumitru slams semi-final venue 16/09/04
Kaizer Chiefs coach Ted Dumitru revealed he is not happy with their SAA Supa 8 semi-final venue, ABSA Park stadium, which is the home ground of the Natal Sharks rugby team.

The Amakhosi will face Moroka Swallows in the semi-final on Sunday, with both sides well aware of who they will meet in the final, as the other semi-final will be contested between Wits and Supersport on Saturday.

"Rugby is in mid-season and I don't think the surface will be flat enough to play football when rugby has been played week-in and week out for the last six months," Dumitru told SAsoccer365.com.

"How can we go and play in a rugby stadium which is not safe for players and football in general. I am happy that my counterpart at Swallows, Gavin Hunt, also raised his concern about the venue for our Sunday clash," said the Amakhosi mentor.

It is a tradition for Kaizer Chiefs to win trophies and the SAA Super 8 semi-final clash against Moroka Swallows on Sunday in Durban will be the start of that tradition of the new season, according to Amakhosi coach, Ted Dumitru.

"Last season alone, we had five matches delayed because of people getting to the stadium late and this season, it has already happened.

"It is not good for my players at all, they do their warm-ups and they come back to the changing room only to be told that they have to sit because the kick off time has been changed. That is very wrong and the club have taken that up with the PSL and I just hope that will not happen on Sunday," fired Dumitru.
