Kaizer Chiefs head coach, Steve Komphela has explained why he sacrificed Lorenzo Gordinho instead of a midfielder when they were reduced to men.

Chiefs suffered a 2-1 loss to SuperSport United at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday evening and remain winless this season.

Eric Mathoho was sent off after just seven minutes, how Komphela decided to withdraw a defender for a defender, rather than sacrifice a midfielder.

"The decision we took, it looked crazy because you suffer a centre back and you taking out a centre back, somebody who is sitting there will be thinking 'this guy is crazy' but at the end, it came out to be the right decision," Komphela told SuperSport after the game.

“The logic was that, one, if you compromise any one of the offensive players; let’s say you take out a Pule (Ekstein), Parker or Shabba (Tshabalala), you’re minimising your strength going forward, and the mistake was, centrally we were not as tight.

"So we bring in Katsande, it got quiet, we had chances, so the decision we took was right.”

@ksleg I still doubt him a lot. He is not contributing to the team. Individual play won't make you the best player. But anyone has his opinion. I still believe that we need a very good play maker at our team. I think Malope will put Ekstein on the bench. just watch.

@darkcity I wonder which Ekstein you have been looking at, Hendrik Ekstein's game has improved a lot he looks confident on the ball more than ever, i believe this is the season we are going to rely on him the most

Steve is right. It worked. We missed chances, we should have equalized. Secondly, this Ekstein boy is not good for Chiefs. I think he should make way for one of the young stars in the team. But I am 100% behind Steve. Amakhosi for life.
