Komphela Praises One Chiefs Player After Baroka Win

Komphela Praises One Chiefs Player After Baroka Win

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 01, 2018 08:40 AM

Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela had some kind words for one of his players following the win over Baroka in the Nedbank Cup.

While happy with the result, Steve Komphela was not too pleased with the scoreline, given the number of chances they spurned in the end, particularly in the first half.
 
“With the outcome yes, but it could’ve been better, yes. I think first half we could’ve gone into the break leading 4-0. There was a ball that I don’t know how it stayed out from Pule," Komphela told SuperSport after the game.
 
“There was another one from (Leonardo Castro), (Ryan) Moon that hit the post and the penalty. But listen these things happen in football. The most important thing is going to the next stage and get the confidence."
 
“All that I wish is our supporters must support the players. As much as you want to see player B coming out for A, it works on B. Chiefs are loving and peaceful and we want to see them remain forever,” he added.
 
Komphela lavished praise on midfielder Pule Ekstein, who raised his hand with a stellar performance, saying he has ‘unbelievable game intelligence’.
 
“Pule has unbelievable game intelligence. Maybe being supported by Shabba (Siphiwe Tshabalala)," the coach added. "You know, two or three heads are better than one and when you get someone to help you connect with your thinking line, it looks better.
 
“He is very quick. He’s got feet that I sometimes don’t know how he is able to carry the ball like that. He is calm and growing in confidence. He understands how to carry the ball forward and finish.
 
“Maybe now he needs to work on his finishing. He could’ve scored a goal today. But you can see he is getting to the right levels,” Komphela said

Bra Steve it's sad that chimpanzees want you gone, your team is beginning to shape up... They just don't know what they want from you, leave them and go to a club that's gonna appreciate you

There is nothing special about you and the one you give unnecessary credit eggstien Mr English man aka Komphela. Judging by your interviews I can see that you are clueless about coaching experts. Since you join this team I never saw your tactics make sense if not to just allow your cows to enter inside the field of play to kick the ball for as long as they will kick it.

I still didn't see the logic behind. Playing Cardoso,Mathoho,Hadebe,Zulu and Mphahlele. How are we really suppose to create goal scoring opportunities? He must also pay serious attention to Hadebe. That one is not doing it for me.

@Bucsfever16 spot on Cardoso really had an outstanding performance. Not this Ekstein.

This boy must mature , Shabba is aging this boy must be someone to take over but he's not maturing at all . He's not consistent, no finished product, many a times misusing clear opportunities, angimuzwa kahle this boy , I love him but always disappoints me .

He is talented but he isn't using his football intelligence wisely. But he is one of my favourite players

Ekstein wasn't playing well before was because you can't play Ekstein in without another attacking midfield. Komphela must continue with tactics He used against Baroka. Zuma and Ntshangase will also fit in perfect. The reason chiefs drew so many games was cause of the defensive structure of Komphela

We can't rely on set pieces only. Our midfield was not strong. We can be MOERed hard by offensive and experienced teams.
