Komphela Defends Signing Free Agents

Komphela Defends Signing Free Agents

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 15, 2017 02:45 PM

Kaizer Chiefs head coach, Steve Komphela has defended signing free agents, and used an example from Bundesliga giants, Bayern Munich to strengthen his reasoning.

The AmaKhosi have brought in a number of free agents over the past few season, and also signed Bhongolwethu Jayiya on a free transfer.

However, the Chiefs coach claimed there are quality players who are free agents, as Bayern signed FIFA Confederations Cup winner Sebastian Rudy on a free.

"The transfer market is awkward, it needs an in-depth analysis," Komphela told SuperSport after their Maize Cup semi-final win. 

"There is a player who played in the German team that won the Confederations Cup, (Sebastian Rudy), he's going to Bayern (Munich) for free, it doesn't mean that player isn't good.

"The rules of the game and transfer marker dictate that the contract has come to an end, you can go for them."

Does the rules of the game also dictate that when the contract has not come to and end you cant go for them? Meaning you always going to wait for free transfers? Meaning you going to leave KC without any silverware and you will never compete in CCL. You should take a leaf out of DOWNS page.

"“The transfer market is difficult to operate in freely, it’s just too complex. We are consistently involved in discussions – we need a goal-scorer,” Komphela told SunSport. “There’s a difference between strikers and goal-scorers. “We need somebody who can just bang in the goals, that will make a big difference. We had identified at least five players, who all upon identification went abroad – some went to Cyprus, Bolivia, others to Denmark – but we are searching, not resting. We want a top player to get us goals,” Komphela explained."

Wits Pinaar and Classon free agents . City,PATOSI and Teko free agents. Rats Nigerian goalkeeper and striker, Sangweni and Wayne Sandilands free agents. Then again Chiefs has to explain why and defend the signing of free agents,when it's not an issue for the other teams.

T T Rapsinoh Jul 16, 2017 08:24 AM He is nt defending, he is telling the truth. Is signing free agent a sin? Hell NO. Are the teams broke when they sign free agent? HELL NO. Are free agents not quality players? HELL NO. So stop writting nonsense wena cowditor and feed us with good news. Sis this SL is nt improving, they are always writting nonsense, same as SABC they are busy with old matches instead of giving us caf champions league matches or bafana bafana matches....................... ...........Wena Nasty what what you think thsi is a song nhe?we can all notice Komphela is trying to compare the un comperable herte we talk about Bayern who only signed one player instead off a team who has been singning Free Agents for the last 5 seasons and realing them without kicking or scoring in official game.
