Many people can say Steve Kompela is not the man for the hot seat at Naturena. I beg to differ. First of all, I am a Khosi fan in good standing, and, to be honest, I really don't like what has been happening this season.
Kaizer Chiefs has become a retirement village. Steve inherited the so-called old 'tried and tested' at his disposal, yet managed to reach two finals at short space of time.
With the very same 'papas' he managed to be in the top 4 for a very long time. ...well, lets think a bit. Imagine if Steve had inherited young blood, willing to make it big in the top flight.
I believe the two finals would have been converted to wins. Yes, Sundown have done great this season, but maybe we would have challenged the title if we had more ambition, not with the players who think they have achieved everything at domestic level. Steve Kompela is the most tactical local coach, who can achieve everything in South Africa if, and only if, he can get young players who are driven and have that hunger to achieve...Steve Kompela is the great one, with a not so driven squad at his disposal.
