Komphela’s Arrival To Affect Chiefs Defender?

Lorenzo Gordinho's Circumstances At Bloemfontein Celtic Could Change Following The Appointment Of Steve Komphela At The Helm

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 21, 2018 09:26 AM

The arrival of Steve Komphela at Bloemfontein Celtic could have an effect on the circumstances of one of the current squad players.

Kaizer Chiefs Lorenzo Gordinho is currently on a one-year loan spell with Siwelele, after falling out of favour under the mentorship of the club’s former coach, Komphela.

The 24-year-old will see his loan stint at the club come to an end in December this year, however, with Celtic set to confirm Komphela’s appointment at the helm following the departure of Veselin Jelusic, there could be questions raised about whether or not Gordinho will be seeing much game-time under Komphela.

Gordinho featured in 14 Absa Premiership encounters for Celtic following his move to the club in January, favoured to play in every fixture, excluding two-matches where he faced a red card suspension.

When the player was still at Chiefs at the start of the season, Gordinho played in just five league encounters before picking up an injury to his ribs, eventually falling out of favour and playing in just one out of six Absa Premiership encounters following his recovery.

Gordinho completed his loan move to Celtic as part of the Kabelo Mahlasela to Chiefs deal and indications were at the time that management at Naturena wanted the player to get more game-time elsewhere, as he was no longer a regular under Komphela.

Now, with Komphela set to mentor Celtic in the new 2018/19 season, it remains to be seen whether Gordinho will experience the same fate under the 50-year-old head coach.

If Steve want to settle scores with Fau he must make sure that he beat them twice the following season and leave Gordinho alone

Its all in your jealous mind LieDuma...he got injured and was replaced by Teenage who owned the position. Steve had no issues with Lorenzo hence the load deal for him to keep playing. He is going back to Chiefs in December so no story here.

Bobby please get Gordinho back, that is our wonder kid. and Cowditor stop lying, Gordinho was not benched bcos of an injury. He was benched after that Supersport game where he mistimed the ball and left Tower to chase Bradley Grobler and then Tower got himself a red card by fouling Grobler from behind and then Kiwi blamed Gordinho, He even substituted him even after Tower had a red card and we were short of defenders, After that Gordinho never played a gtame for Chiefs. Bobby please get Gordinho back or he will be finished under Kiwi.

Khompela was never at loggerheads with Gordinho, and his relationship with youth is very healthy. He is the only coach with guts in the entire psl to promote youngsters to 1st team, the likes of Meyiwa, Molapo, Ngezane are prime examples. Congrats Jola to your new job with Masele! your naysayers are dead quiet now

Cowditor you are the only one who is affected by something, you need to be evaluated. Gordinho will be back home.
