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.”

Chiefs must players; quality not quantity and Steve must have the Assistant, not a BALL BOY that sits next to him; Steve is greedy why he only employ a BALLBOY instead of the experienced Assistant Coach? he wont win anything if Chiefs Management allows him to be the Head and the Assistant Coach for a big team like Chiefs

Body language...he should leave the mighty khosi alone...as a big team you can't rely on "transaction " o count attacks....can't create clear chances..what would you do with 4-5-1? Attack o defend I really can't understand
