Komphela: Pressure Puts Me At Ease
Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has revealed that he ‘feeds’ off pressure when the going gets tough.
Komphela will lead his charges in the MTN8 final against a young and talented Ajax Cape Town outfit as he seeks his first piece of silverware at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on Saturday, September 16.
The former national Under 23 coach, who is yet to taste defeat since his arrival at the Naturena-based outfit, says that it's true there will be pressure but that high pressure makes him feel at ease.
He told the Siya crew that working under pressure brings the best out of him and he is looking forward to the weekend’s game.
"I think I was worried differently because when I am under pressure I tend to speak slowly because I don't want to make mistakes. You know when I am under pressure I think properly before making my next move. I am always at ease when under pressure. So if that pressure will help me plan well for the game then I am glad it will help me win the trophy and on Sunday we can be celebrating. But yes there will be pressure and it will be the one helping me plan things properly," the former Maritzburg United coach said.
