Komphela: It Is Embarrassing

Absa Premiership, Steve Komphela: Platinum Stars v Kaizer Chiefs, 17 May 2017

By Soccer Laduma - May 18, 2017 09:41 AM

Kaizer Chiefs coach, Steve Komphela, says his side’s 2-0 loss to Platinum Stars in the Absa Premiership was embarrassing.

First half goals from Solomon Mathe and Enocent Mkhabela handed Dikwena the win, while Chiefs struggled to create any clear-cut chances in front of goal.

Komphela lambasted his team by saying that they were not nullified by Stars, but rather that they were extremely poor on the night.

“When you say they nullified us, you are giving us a lot of credit, when you nullify someone you give that to someone who is trying something, we did absolutely nothing in the first half,” Komphela told SuperSport after the game.

“It is embarrassing. I have never seen us play like that in my life. The worst first half that I have ever seen.

“It is out of disrespect that we perform like that and it’s something we would like to forget. So many people come to watch you, I don’t even think an amateur team could play like that.

“The second half we came back a bit better, but compliments must be given to Platinum Stars. They gave us what we deserve.

“Above anything else, you have to acknowledge the opportunity given to you. When you are given the gold and black shirt, put it on with pride and honour, do something to show that you are fighting and you went down fighting.

“We are going into the next game and I hope they realise that people died and loved this team who deserve better.”

We wont win a trophy as long as you are at the helm, we need an overseas one. O ne senyama coach. You failed to challenge for anything. You broke the records we pride with at Naturena by going to two finals and failed to bring home any trophy. Nw you are still in the top8 simply because number 6 cant overtake us

the problem you train the team and not watch it playing. chiefs have been playing like this for the past two season. next season, under you, it will be the same.

You are always in soccerladuma, talking too much. You are too soft to the players that why they played like they did against stars, did you see how ajax cape town improved? Is because their coach doesn't make friendship with the players

As it is a family business.the family will do what is best for the business not for certain individuals who some dnt evn go to staduim and support PSL matches.if they fire him clearly chiefs will have to pay him as we knw chiefs they will never fire Steve as tht would mean losing money.Steve will finish his term unless he resign.Hola stevovo wabantwana.
