Steve Komphela has been at Kaizer Chiefs for just one season, but fans are calling for a new Manager...
However, the previous coach, Stuart Baxter was given more patience and was supported for three seasons, so why are fans treating South African coaches like this, but foreign coaches are given the benefit of the doubt?
Look closely at the Chiefs team. 99% of the Kaizer Chiefs line-up is made up of new players or those that play off the bench, including players such as Twala, Macha, Baloyi, Mphahlele, Gordinho, Moleko, Chirambadare, Xulu, Khumalo, Ekstein, Cardoso, and so on. So it's going to take time to find balance and the right combinations, it’s not going to be easy for Komphela, because when Chiefs brought players in , they signed players with injuries such as Keegan and Mkhabela are out injured… should fans blame the coach?
The players that fans should blame are the likes of Bernard Parker, George Lebese, and George Maluleke, for not being at their best lately, considering that they have been at Chiefs for long time. They have been tasked with bringing stability to the team, but have failed to do so.
Do you think Steve Komphela and Kaizer Chiefs new signings deserve more patience from the fans?
