Motaung Not Throwing The Towel In On Komphela
Kaizer Motaung addresses Kaizer Chiefs fans.
Kaizer Chiefs boss, Kaizer Motaung, addressed the clubs fans going into the new year, and while the club remains trophy-less, he is adamant that they are not throwing in the towel.
The Chairman reflected on the loss of goalkeeper coach Alexandre Revoredo, and touched on the club’s development structures as well as some of their new signings.
Suggesting that their expectations with Coach Steve Komphela at the helm has not paid dividends, Motaung admitted that they have not given up.
“It has been a difficult journey in 2017. We were hoping that with coach Steve Komphela now in his third season that more positive results would be forthcoming, but that hasn’t happened as yet.
“We have now gone 2.5 years without winning a trophy and that’s disappointing. But we won’t throw in the towel. There are no shortcuts and the margins between the different teams are small, but there is still a lot to play for – the Absa Premiership and the Nedbank Cup,” read Motaung’s message on the club’s official website, in part.
This is the longest period of time in the club’s history without a trophy, and with two pieces of silverware still on offer, Komphela will be adamant on bringing success to the club.
Chiefs play their first game of 2018 on Saturday, when they take on SuperSport United on January 6 at the Mbombela Stadium.
