Komphela: I Hate Conceding Goals

Despite seeing his side register a comfortable 3-1 win over Golden Arrows in an Absa Premiership match on Tuesday night, Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela bemoaned the fact that his side conceded.

A brace from George Lebese and goal from Bernard Parker saw Chiefs bounce back to winning ways after losing to Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates on the weekend.

Kompheal was happy with the win, but admitted he hates conceding goals in defence.

“It was a very simple match, yet very complex,” said Komphela.

“We could have scored more goals, but we will appreciate what the Almighty has presented tonight, even though we conceded.

“I just hate conceding goals, but it happened yet again and we will have to just keep on working harder.”

Komphela also complimented the fans who came out to cheer for the Amakhosi after losing on the weekend to Pirates.

“We want to compliment these beautiful people that came here tonight,” added the Chiefs coach

“There was an emotional banner they had tonight and I had to share the message with the players.

“The banner was reading something to the effect of ‘the supporter who comes to a match at the back of a loss in a derby is a real supporter’. That is a massive statement, when you read that and hear the fans sing, it makes you get emotional.

“We thank these people, it isn’t easy but nobody said it was going to be. We will soldier on.”

Looking ahead to the Telkom Knockout semifinal on Saturday, Komphela said it is a chance for them to redeem themselves.

“We are given an opportunity to redeem ourselves. We are given another opportunity to rectify our mistakes. It is not about the number of times you go down, but coming up one more time is the difference. Characters are built and characters will be revealed,” concluded Komphela.
