Kaizer Chiefs coach, Steve Komphela will always be a scapegoat for the club’s poor performances, and after the 2-1 defeat to Bidvest Wits, fans will be questioning why he failed to start his new signings in the game, except for one of them.
But the first thing fans need to take into account is that, if the new players aren’t performing, any coach would have left them out of the team, not just Komphela.
There’s a lot more to it than what meets the supporters’ eyes. Komphela clearly sees his old crop of players as better quality compared to the new players at the club. Therefore, he would rather play them, knowing what they have to offer on the pitch.
However, at the end of the day, Steve is probably dreading tomorrow’s match against new boys, Cape Town City, and it could even be said that it looks as though it may be a long time before Chiefs win a game again. So it wouldn’t be a surprise if we see Steve Komphela lose his job, if the club is unable to sign any new, quality players before the transfer window closes.
Do you think Komphela will lose his job?
