Komphela: We Need A Killer Instinct
Steve Komphela Wants Killer Instinct Form Chiefs
Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela was happy with their first-half display during their victory over Stellenbosch FC, but feels they still lack a killer instinct.
The Soweto giants manage to survive a late scare when the host pulled a goal back through the head of Alan Robertson to set-up a nervy closing stages for Chiefs.
Komphela believes they could have gone into the break with a healthier lead while lamenting the fact they made it difficult for themselves late on.
“It was a good first half. We should have scored two or three to make live easy, but we almost made it difficult for ourselves. I don’t know, but we need to develop some killer instincts where we try and distance the opponents from hoping they can equalise," Komphela told SuperSpot after the game.
“2-1 puts stress and you cannot put changes that are for you in the future. We stuck to manage the game, but we're delighted with the victory. Going through to the next round and we keep working,” he said.
After squandering a few glaring chances, particularly in the first period, Komphela believes they have to be fearless going forward and adopt a killer instinct, something they advocated during halftime.
“We've got to be fearless, but it’s different saying it to them applying it. They need to get the same level of thinking in the zone you find yourself. We said at halftime, we have to dominate play with more freedom," he added.
“I go back to saying, how you do things is what you feel about it and how you feel is how you think. The initial stage of any process is thinking. So if you don’t have the confidence and concentration of thinking you won’t feel right and act right.
“So for us to act right, we have to be more consistent with the results were in our heads we know we are clear then action-wise we will be perfect."
