Komphela Speaks As Chiefs End Worst Half In Eight Years

Kaizer Chiefs Finished The Year With A Win

By Soccer Laduma - Dec 18, 2017 10:35 AM
Despite winning back-to-back Absa Premiership games for the first time since April, Kaizer Chiefs couldn’t avoid their worst first half of a season since back in 2009/10.
 
 
The Amakhosi managed to knuckle down and beat a struggling Ajax Cape Town over the weekend thanks to a late Dumisani Zuma goal, and finish the year with 22 points and in second place in the league.
 
That tally of 22 points is their lowest after fifteen games since the 2009/10 season when they ended up in third place at the end of the campaign under Vladimir Vermezovic. 
 
But despite their form, they’ve won just six of their last 21, stretching back to last season – Komphela is pleased with their victory over the Urban Warriors and that it’s left their supporters happy for Christmas. 
 
 
He told the club’s official website, “Ajax pushed us to the limit, but at the end of the day they couldn’t keep up with the continued pressure we put on them. We kept on knocking and probing in their goal area until our persistence paid off.
 
“We had a number of entries in their final third in the first half, but we went into the break with nothing to show for our efforts. I’m delighted with the win though – the first win at home makes this a good Christmas present for our supporters.”
 
Meanwhile, looking forward to their next game in early January, Komphela said, “It is going to be a matter of periodisation to make sure that the festive holidays won’t affect us. We will have a few days off, but we will otherwise be training during the festive season.”
 
Chiefs face SuperSport on January 6th for their first game of 2018.

Now the new year's present we want is your resignation. As long as you are the chiefs coach it is a waste to buy quality players.

Eish Khompela you like to talk too much once you won 2/3 games Nyana you found yourself to highest levels of coaching but you mustn't forget that you're cupless in future so make sure you sign more quality players I want you to playing attacking football sothat fans will avoid to sing the worse song to you the whole seasons after 3/4 games man and stop to park scrap bus even to Derby's game man

With a very thin squad as compared to Downs and Wits (in last position) we are in a respectable position. Steve's tactics are the only thing keeping us alive. If Rats and SuperSport can lose to Free State Stars and Baroka then it shows how competitive this league is. Hoping that Castro can help us get the goals to keep us in contention for the league.
