The Shocking Stats Behind Komphela’s Disastrous Amakhosi Spell

How Bad Was Steve Komphela's Kaizer Chiefs Record?

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 23, 2018 01:49 PM

Though life at Kaizer Chiefs started out with a seven-game unbeaten run, Steve Komphela leaves the Amakhosi with an unwanted record and poor statistics. 

Check out a full breakdown of Komphela's Chiefs stats above

Komphela resigned as head of the Glamour Boys on Saturday night following a 2-0 defeat to Free State Stars in the Nedbank Cup and the disgraceful scenes of hooliganism that followed. 

The 50-year-old was expected to see out his contract at the club before leaving ahead of the new campaign, however, the violence at Moses Mabhida Stadium seemed to force both his, and the club’s, hand in the matter.

Now, with three games left to play this season, the club has to come to terms with the fact that – for the first time in their history – they will complete three full seasons without lifting a single piece of silverware. 

The defeat to Ea Lla Koto was Komphela’s 112th game with Chiefs since taking charge of his first (a 5-3 win over Maritzburg United) in August 2015. It was his 27th loss at the club.

In total, Komphela won 42% of all his games (47 of 112), drawing 38, a record that is substantially worse than his predecessor, Stuart Baxter, who left with a 60% win ratio and only lost 19 games.

With fans having criticised his defensive approach, it will come as no surprise that the club averaged just 1.3 goals per game during his tenure, scoring 148 in his 112 matches. They also conceded – on average – just over one goal per game (116 in 112) throughout the course of his spell. In the Absa Premiership, he averaged 1.59 points per game. He also never managed to beat Orlando Pirates in a Soweto Derby in open play. 

Having won the league in 2014/15, Chiefs finished fifth in Komphela’s first season and fourth in his second. With three games left to play this year, they can still mathematically get second place, though are currently fourth.

Do you think it was the right time for Komphela to step down?

Bobby also must fall,lack of quality players.yes is good for steve to step down,he should have done this long time ago.they nvr protect him with the best players,to be the best coach you need the surpot of the management just like what Motsepe is doing to pitso.bobby and his father they will have to sort themself out and bring the glory days back to the team.they turn the glomur boys to ugly boys,we realy feel sad from long time ago it was clear that this team is not going any wher,we can't blame Steve alone.

@Junero: Truth will always hurt! We were robbed many times, not once but many many times but we never hurt anyone or damage anything... This hooligans must be banned from coming to stadiums, we don't need this kind of scenes in our beautiful game... Ba nagana gore ke bo mang bona siiis!

Some comments especially from the opposition are showing the nudity of brains.

@Junero you know very well that you have no tangible proof. Cooment rationally not for the sake of commenting.

The media both digital and print are making things worse because they are after profit. What happened at FNB and Mabhida is not as a result of losses. The reason for such actions was to force the coach to resign or leave Chiefs. They did that because their pleas to management fell on deaf ears. That's the main reason. Chiefs have lost games since they were formed like any other teams. If the reasons given by the media were true, we would have been having problem in all games which were lost. Crazy hey.

Nothing wrong here, this stats is true reflecting of Chips. The only thing that changed is the standard of referring in South Africa, it has improved. Chips use to win by gaining advantage from referees favour. Since they start investing referees and match officiating then Chips stop winning trophies from then. I'm telling you if Chips doesn't get advantage from referees then they will still win nothing. Nothing wrong with Steve is just that brown envelope is no longer working.

I don't feel for Steve with so many reasons.He couldn't enforce disciple amongst the players,the backline was chopping and changing now and again.I didn't under the first 11 choice of players this past weekend. Why Steve field two left back and stretch center back on the right side,while you have Mphahlele or Maleko available. Second half ,Shabba was playing left back ,Katsande playing a sweeper,Erich Matoho playing in the middle. Steve was loosing 2 nil and he introduce Mphahlele ,why can't you take Parker out and replace him Maluleka. Steve cause this mess
