Komphela And Chiefs’ ‘Huge Responsibility’

Steve Komphela Feels Kaizer Chiefs Have A Responsibility To Their Fans

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 02, 2018 09:27 AM
Steve Komphela hasn’t given up on winning the Absa Premiership just yet and says that he and his players have a ‘huge responsibility’ to deliver for the club.
 
 
The Amakhosi took one step closer to silverware on Saturday night as they beat Baroka 1-0 thanks to a header from Erick Mathoho, seeing them reach the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup where they will meet Free State Stars.
 
Chiefs cut things close in the second half as Bakgaga tried their best to get level, but Komphela’s side held out and managed to reach the Nedbank semis for the first time since 2013/14 when they were beaten on penalties by Bidvest Wits.
 
Speaking to the club’s official website after the game, Komphela expressed his opinion that they’re still not prepared to call it quits in the Absa Premiership, despite being seven points behind the league leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns. 
 
 
He said, “Going forward is a matter of going back to Johannesburg and getting ready for the next game.
 
“We don’t have the luxury of selecting competitions. We are still playing to win the league as well. Hopefully, we will finally get a trophy – I think our administration and supporters deserve it. This is a big club and we need to win trophies.
 
“We take each and every game seriously… We have a huge responsibility to deliver.”
 
Chiefs’ next game sees them take on Stars in a warm up for their semi against Ea Lla Koto on Wednesday, with the Glamour Boys seeking their first win since mid-February.

This guy is over optimistic, His focus now should not be on the league. He lost the league wen he couldnt beat weak teams like Amazulu. If he is so eager to get a silverware, rather focus on the Nedbank. Stop daydreaming

Sir Baxter would play 3-5-2, yet we used to be deadly going forward, if people can ask themselves why, then they'd understand where our problem lies.

Let me explain my hostile attitude towards Steve: 1. Steve has the players who could have achieved more, but instead of going for the kill, he opted to focus more on defense. 2. I stated after the Dunusa game, which I believe is a game that was supposed to make us real contenders for the league. In that game Steve maintained a defensive formation against a team that had come to fnb for a point. He played into their hands and expressed satisfaction during post match interview, 4. I support the 3-5-2 formation wholeheartedly, however the problem with Steve is that he prefers defensive wingbacks instead of attacking ones. Tight played mostly in defense and would only start venturing into attack when it was late in matches, 3. Wingbacks' first priority is attack, not defense, hence am arguing that Shabba should play where Zulu plays. 5. Steve insisted in playing two defensive midfielders when there was no need to. We had Katsande and back three to provide cover. 6. He fails to realise that Zuma is the right player to start with Castro, and with Ecksteen and Ntshangase in the centre, Shabba and Rama in the flank, our team would play with so much creativity and there would be no need to rely on set pieces. 7. In closing, with Sir Baxter set pieces were a plan b. Right now they are a plan A, it is annoying.

Sir Khompela your team lost a title challenge back in January. They even play disjointed on top of it you need to score goals in order to win a match. But judging by your preferred tactics playing 5 defenders is not going to help you win matches and mount a serious title challenge. Your time is up Mr.

@Bucsfever16, yes, I was one of football supporters who condemned Bobby for placing it on record that he didn't apply with a CV to be where he is. Seeing Tate Kaizer Motaung having to come out of the closest to tender unreserved apology following what I described as "Bobby 's reckless and unfortunate remarks" was painful, but, after taking time to study fau idiots' intellectual ability/weaknesses and behaviour patterns, I came to understand where Bobby was coming from.

Even Kaizer is no longer calling urgent meetings with Prof Komphela, he knows he get out of those meetings a very confused old man.
