Komphela: We Need A Killer Instinct

Steve Komphela Wants Killer Instinct Form Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 10, 2018 11:07 PM

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."

The song "Komphela must go" is paused now. FAU's fans are cheap to please.

Prof Komphela 's " Need for A Killer Instinct" remind me of Former State President, JZ 's call for Radical Economic Transformation when he was on his way out.

Mara Komphela yena, it is ironic that he defended the whole season, even protecting a 1-0 lead or 0-0 at some stage and in his last few months of his contract, see the need for a killer instinct. Ja...Fau idiots are treated just like that.

Now I see why Komphela is so chilled and confirmed that he feels no pressure at Chiefs. He knows that one win against a weak,small and sponsorless lower division team could brush off LDDDDLDLLDL's.
