Bukenya: No Difference In Komphela & Baxter Game Plans

Kaizer Chiefs defender, Ivan Bukenya, has indicated that there is very little difference in the tactics and approach to the game of former coach, Stuart Baxter, and current mentor, Steve Komphela.

Bukenya was brought to Chiefs by Baxter, but is ironically getting more game time under Komphela. The centre back only started seven games in two seasons under Baxter, with most of those appearances coming in lesser cup games.

This season he has already started three games for Komphela and earned the praise of his mentor for his solid display against Ajax.

The 23-year-old has indicated that making the switch from Baxter to Komphela has been seamless, as both coaches share a similar philosophy.

“I think there is not a big difference because their game plans are almost the same. There is no big difference or any big change. Generally, there is no difference in their game plans.”

“It would have been hard for me if coach Steve’s game plan was different to coach Stuart’s, but everything is more or less the same in the way they want us to play.”

“Their tactics and coaching methods are the same. So for me it’s not difficult at all. I am feeling at home here,” Bukenya told Soccer Laduma.
