Kaizer Chiefs coach, Steve Komphela, has taken full responsibility for the Glamour Boys’ 2-0 defeat against arch-rivals, Orlando Pirates, in the Nedbank Cup Last 32 on Saturday.
Speaking on Kaizer Chiefs’ official website, Komphela believed that his team dominated in the Soweto Derby, despite the score-line.
“We controlled 90 percent of the game, but got punished with the 10 percent,” he said.
He lamented his team’s failure to take their scoring opportunities, which saw Pirates inflict a 2-0 defeat, following a second-half brace from Tendai Ndoro.
The loss means Chiefs exit the Nedbank Cup and have scored only two goals in the last five Soweto derbies against the Buccaneers & failed to win any of them after regulation time.
“We should have won the game. But there is no ‘should’ or ‘if’ in football. We had enough chances to win. I take full responsibility,” Komphela added.
Chiefs will now switch attention to their PSL match against Platinum Stars on Wednesday, March 9.
