Komphela: It’s Not Over Yet!

Steve Komphela has refused to write off Kaizer Chiefs’ 2015/16 season despite now being mathematically out of the title race with five games to go.

Result this past weekend meant that the Amakhosi’s already slim chances of retaining the Absa Premiership trophy were officially put to bed, with only Mamelodi Sundowns, Bidvest Wits and Platinum Stars left in the chase.

However, Komphela says that the season is not over yet, and that the Amakhosi will fight for their remaining points as they look to at least grab a CAF Confederation Cup spot for next year.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Komphela said, “We can't continue with the same script of missed chances. Truth be told, we do create chances, but we fail to slot them in.

“Foremost, I must also compliment Ajax for their good game plan. They played a clever game of putting early pressure on our defenders whenever they got possession of the ball. As a result, we couldn’t build-up from the back with ease and we had to look for other options to penetrate them. It often took us too long to find those options.”

Meanwhile, regarding the club’s lack of goals, Komphela went on to say, “Our players tried their best to win the match, however it wasn’t to be. We are back to where we were before this game, another draw. We need to work on our finishing.

“We plan to try to rectify things for the remaining matches, especially with an eye on next season. We will never lack the motivation, because a Chiefs match is always about more than just the three points. The season is not over until the last game.”
