Komphela Feels Chiefs Were A Little Arrogant

Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela felt his side showed a little arrogance in their Absa Premiership match against Highlands Park on Wednesday night.

A single penalty goal from George Lebese handed Chiefs their first win of the 2016/17 season, but Komphela was not overly impressed.

“I thought we controlled the second half, even though sometimes I felt we were a little cautious,” said Komphela.

“When you are a monster you move into a forest with your eyes closed, sometimes you have to have a little bit of caution and respect for the game because complacency or too much confidence ends up hurting you.

“I thought sometimes we had slightly above average levels of arrogance where we exposed the ball.

“We could have been more careful with the ball.

“In the first half I thought we could have gotten some goals and we didn’t take advantage.”

Komphela also defend his style of play which saw the fans booing at times, but has said his team do need to show a little more energy.

“One of the biggest challenges in a team that builds from the back is that when you start it looks almost lethargic – we need to get into the opponent’s half a bit faster – on transition as well, as soon as we regain possession, it is something we need to work on,” added the Amakhosi coach.

“We need to work on the energy so we can get an early goal and settle the nerves.

“At the back of this victory, irrespective of how it came, it will give the team more confidence and we can start working forward.

“There is a lot of work to be done.

“Technical and tactical perfection comes from mental comfort. If you are comfortable mentally then any skill you execute you do with ease.”
