Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has often been praised for being a good coach as well as a top motivator.
Players that need a push or extra motivation may then be in the right hands under the guidance the mentor. With that in mind, here are a few Chiefs players expected to benefit from Komphela’s man managing skills.
Younger players, particularly youth products at a big club like Chiefs, often feature in less important fixtures throughout the season. Nevertheless, we have already seen ‘Freedom’ feature for Chiefs this season - with Komphela showing a good deal of trust in the youngster.
As was mentioned above, young players often get limited chances in the campaign, and this was the case for Eckstein last season. Pule hasn’t changed and looks to be improving every time he is asked to feature by Komphela.
‘Shaka Zulu’ may not have featured much for Amakhosi last season, but under Komphela we have seen a lot more of the striker. Mthembu already looks to have improved and is taking to his role with promise.
What other players do you think will thrive under Komphela this season?
