Dladla: Komphela 'Killed Kaizer Chiefs'

Josta Dladla Critical Of Steve Komphela's Tactics In Kaizer Chiefs' Loss To Orlando Pirates

By Ryan Gordon - Mar 04, 2018 12:30 PM
Former Amakhosi midfielder Josta Dladla claims Steve Komphela's substitutions "killed Kaizer Chiefs" during Saturday's Soweto derby defeat.
 
 
The Glamour Boys saw their hopes of challenging for the Absa Premiership title severely dented after going down 3-1 to bitter rivals Orlando Pirates at FNB Stadium this weekend.
 
The result left Chiefs eight points adrift of leaders Mamelodi Sundowns with seven games remaining, and Dladla, who watched the game from inside the stadium, was left ruing the change in tempo after half-time, with the Glamour Boys having been well on top in the first 45 minutes, only to implode after the restart.
 
"When I look at the game from a fan's position, the first half was Kaizer Chiefs' half," Dladla, who spent six years at Naturena with Chiefs between 2009 and 2015, told the crew after the match.
 
"When you look at it, Kaizer Chiefs had more ball possession in the first-half, but they didn't actually use it that much, and in the second half, Pirates were dominant more."
 
 
Dladla believes the change in dominance was due to some tactical mistakes from Komphela, claiming Bernard Parker should have been the first introduction in the second-half, and not Gustavo Paez, while also suggesting Hendrick Ekstein coming on forced Willard Katsande to abandon his midfield role and sit deeper back in central defence - a position that does not favour the midfielder.
 
While Dladla insists he has the utmost respect for Komphela, he was, objectively, far from impressed with the coach's tactical implementations on the day.
 
"After half-time, at the crucial time, which is the first five minutes (of the half), Pirates caught us sleeping and they equalised. Those are the times, as a coach, you want your players to be aware, but they (Chiefs) got punished," Dladla continued.
 
 
"Against one of the best at the moment, one of the best transition teams in the country going forward, when they come at you, they come at you with everything, and most of the times when they come at you they score those goals.
 
"It could have easily been 6-0, they were lucky the score was not that.
 
"For me, at the end of the day, the coach made the wrong decisions, the wrong shouts. That actually killed Kaizer Chiefs."

I think we need to start by remembering that you Josta didn't do much at chiefs... It's so easy to point at someone's errors, as if you were perfect... There are games that both sundowns and chiefs lost because of you, you were one of the worst players I've ever seen

Dladla I of the people, you are the one who understand the technical decision better.Whatever decision they make is a gamble. Hence you sat on the bench until you retire. If you didn't know the reason then, then know it now. The coaches didn't want to gamble any further with you. That's you unceremoniously retired. Watch Sphiwe Tshabalala if he will take a back door to retire. No cause is committed to the work at hands. Unlike the likes of you who devoted their lives in the vicinity of luxury life.

That's one of the reasons why his time at naturena must come to an end.
