Kaizer Chiefs’ head coach, Steve Komphela says that the team appreciates the continued support from the fans and do not take it personally when they become frustrated with their performances.

Chiefs travelled away to the Peter Mokaba Stadium last night, October 31, where they locked horns with Polokwane City in an Absa Premiership encounter which ended in a 1-1 draw.

After several chances in front of goal, Amakhosi failed to find the back of the net on the evening, steering away from their goal to continue their winning momentum.

Speaking to Chiefs’ official website, the Soweto giants’ head coach revealed that he is aware that Amakhosi need to work on their finishing in matches, saying that Polokwane did not make it easy for his side on the day.

“Foremost, my compliments to Polokwane City. The match was tense and I thought it could have gone either way. We had chances – for Bernard Parker, Dumsani Zuma and Pule Ekstein, while Siphiwe Tshabalala hit the bar. If you look at the log, it’s not easy to get points, it is tight. We wanted to wrap up the match early on to save legs in this tight schedule, but our finishing continues to be a work in progress,” Komphela said.

He then went on to commend the likes of George Maluleka and Philani Zulu while also revealing that he understands the frustrations of the fans when Chiefs are unable to get a win. 

“George Maluleka works hard, he is defending and attacking very well. I am also happy with Philani Zulu’s performances, although credit must go to the whole team. More training, matches and positive results will help build confidence. It is clicking, we must just get more wins and things will start flowing.”

“They are behind us and when results are not coming they get as frustrated as we do, but we don’t take it personally. We appreciate their continued support immensely and they know that. We will take this point. But we will go back to the drawing board and prepare for the next match. There were a lot of positives to take out of this game,” he added.
