Komphela: It Could Have Been 4-0…

Steve Komphela Wants Kaizer Chiefs To Score More

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 02, 2018 07:57 AM
Not for the first time this season, Steve Komphela has bemoaned Kaizer Chiefs’ inability to kill teams off following their narrow 1-0 win over Baroka in the Nedbank Cup.
 
 
The Amakhosi created numerous chances in the first half, including missing a penalty, although relying on Erick Mathoho getting on the end of Siphiwe Tshabalala’s corner to give them the lead.
 
Bakgaga managed to fight back in the second stanza, creating chances of their own, but the Glamour Boys held firm thanks to the likes of Daniel Cardoso and Teenage Hadebe, booking their spot in the semi-finals for the first time in four years.
 
Speaking to the club’s official website following the victory, Komphela said, “There is still a semi-final to play. For now, the most important thing is the win because we want this trophy. We failed to win (by) a wider margin though. We had some chances to bury the match in the first half. I thought Ryan Moon, Leonardo Castro and Hendrick Ekstein all came close to scoring. We could have easily gone up 4-0 in the first half. 
 
 
“I thought we could have played with more fluidity, but we will take away lots of positives from this victory. I’m happy with the performance in general. There’s also nothing as pleasing as to see our supporters happy. They once again came in numbers to show their love for the team.”
 
Chiefs have been drawn against Free State Stars in the semi-finals of the Nedbank and face the very same Ea Lla Koto on Wednesday in the Absa Premiership, with Komphela looking to try and make sure they don’t end the season without silverware for the third time in a row.

@Madredz Chiefs is moving, Pirates will watch the rest of Nedbank Cup from the stands and will remain trophyless forever unless they slaughter a black & white goat and mount the bones at Orlando Stadium entrance gate

People insinuate that I complain even when we win. But they fail to realise that my complaints are justified because we blow hot and cold and are inconsistent. I don't trust that Khomphela will build on the team that played Baroka. Before you know it, he will start Maluleka. Which is nonsense considering that we have 3 towers at the back, and Katsande covering for wingbacks and midfielders. Maluleka should only be introduced if we want to close shop. But our coach closes shop when matches start.

Interesting that a defensive minded cowch wants more goals. Here's what you need to do Steve...get rid of Zulu and push Shabba to the left wingback position. Introduce Ntshangase to play with Ecksteen in the middle. Start with Zuma, he is a natural supporting striker. Once this happens, the top strike won't have any business going deep to collect. Our team will have adequate supply from the right (Rama), left(Shabba) and Centre (Ecksteen and Ntshangase. And once you have Zuma running into spaces, Castro should stay in the kitchen, except when he has to hold for midfielders to join the attack. Lastly, when we go forward, we only have four players going over the halfway line, from that point others hold back. That's not how you score more goals. Stop telling us about goals when you don't have a plan in attack. The team you played against Baroka had the potential to attack. Show more confidence.
