Komphela Wants Balance Between Style & Goals

Kaizer Chiefs Coach Steve Komphela Hopes For Balance Between Playing Well And Getting Positive Results

By Ryan Gordon - Mar 11, 2018 11:30 AM
Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela admits his side need to find a balance between performing well and getting the goals, likening the difference to sweet and dry wine.
 
 
Last week, Amakhosi put in a sterling display in the Soweto derby but ultimately left the FNB Stadium empty-handed after crashing to a 3-1 loss to bitter rivals Orlando Pirates.
 
Then, on Saturday, the Glamour Boys failed to find top gear against Stellenbosch FC but still managed to progress to the Nedbank Cup quarter-finals with a 2-1 win over the Cape Town side.
 
 
As such, Komphela knows the team need to reach a level where strong showings on the field reflect themselves in results, something the tactician knows the club's supporters expect week in and week out.
 
"Football is a funny business. Last week [against Orlando Pirates] we performed well, and the result did not come. And you'll say 'do I want goals and not get [a good] performance' - they [the fans] will kill you for that," the coach told SuperSport TV.
 
"They want you to win, and win in style, but if you can play in style and not win, it doesn't satisfy them because they are people of success, so it is important to go for the win."
 
"It has to be a sweet win and not a dry one."

We used to defend Steve. But now with the squad he has at his disposal he has tested our faith to the limit. I bet less than 5000 fans will watch Chiefs play at fnb for the remainder of the season.

@slowpoison, to be honest with you, I never thought for a second that Prof Komphela can be so tricky in his communication before he joined fau. Ja...him coming to nappyrena was an eye opener. He is a highly sophisticated communicator. He beats all of us including fau supporters.

Playing Katsande and Meyiwa at the same time is one of the reasons you can't find balance

We can try and break down Prof Komphela 's quotes from his post match interview the whole week, but will never get the gist of his statements. I tried to follow last night only to throw the towel when I got confused.
