Banks: Komphela Won’t Have Any Excuses This Season

Chiefs Legend Discusses Steve Komphela's Future

By Kyle Smith - Jul 30, 2017 05:01 PM @KyleLaduma

Former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Banks Setlhodi says that this season is Steve Komphela’s last chance to win with the club because he’s had enough time to acclimatise to the team and there will be no more excuses.

Who Are Kaizer Chiefs' New Faces?

Komphela is now entering his third campaign in charge of Amakhosi, having guided the team to two consecutive trophyless seasons and the 70-year-old has said that the football fraternity needs to wait for the start of the season before they can reserve judgement on Komphela’s prospects for the 2017/18 campaign.

“I think, for now, it’s still early to say (how he’s going to perform). We can’t really judge him, so let’s wait before we judge him. Now, he has had two seasons and he’s acclimatised (to the team),” Setlhodi explained. “After that, he now knows exactly what is needed at the team.”

Ex-Chiefs Trialist Now At Sundowns

The former shot-stopper added that, with Komphela being afforded the time to get used to the environment in the Amakhosi hot seat, there will be no more excuses for the former Maritzburg United coach should he fail to get results.

“How about we wait for the season to begin because we know that he has the capacity to teach the players to operate as a good team,” he continued. “They are a good team and he’s got the players he wants. This time, not winning (any trophies) will be a failure. He will be failing because he won’t have any excuses.”

He is likely to be expelled right in the middle of the season because he is just not Chiefs material.

Lets hope he will deliver but his problem he likes defending too much, looking at the derby on Saturday he had the opportunity to kill pirates buy attacking more but him opted for counter after being attacked which only works with clever midfielders(ie. Modise, mdokis, shoes, shabba etc) and intelligent strikers(ie. paez, masinga, williams etc) which shows on the second half that he doesn't have. and defending against the team which is not posing any great threat is being coward. We need free flowing attacking, well defending and passing football not score one goal and defend. but lets hope for the best.

If we can be firm with our back 4, and provide a cover when either Rama or Masilela going up it will be a perfect arrangement, Mabedi have to work on that, our midfielders to learn to cut spaces and spray neat passes to strikers timeously

Steve Kompela and Patric Mabedi I am fully behind you so do me proud lift this MTN8 trophy and other cups will come. You even a women doesnt fall in love with a guy who doesnt have a girl friend so one trophy will be followed by so many trophies.

Thanx Kompela for allowing the boys to play Kasi style, Ekstein was marvelous to watch yet he need to improve in his passes and finishing. Even Maluleke did shown signs of improvement and he can improve even more if we can put Ntshangase in our set up. No one must be guaranteed a space now but those perfoming well. Kompela the MTN8 journey is too short so atleast be consistant in all mtn 8 cup games and lift the trophy. Just specialise with trophies like Etugral that cow never won the league but he won trophies.

I personally like Steve and his commitment, for him to succeed, he must remove fear of unknown. Relieve those who are tired by new energy, the player who can win Steve games is non other than Lebese.
