Komphela: We Don’t Want To Play Ugly And Win

Following his side’s 1-0 win over MP Black Aces in an Absa Premiership match on Tuesday night, Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela said he does not like playing ugly but did what was necessary to get the three points.

“It was a good win, a good result, three points we add and we move on,” said Komphela.

“In terms of performance in the second half, tactical games sometimes tend to be boring.

“The first match in Mbombela (a 2-1 win for Chiefs in the Telkom Knockout this past weekend), I don’t know how many systems Aces played, but we kept on adapting.

“I’m sure we played four systems.

“Today as well in first half and I was desperate that we should get two or three goals because I know my counter (Muhsin Ertugral) is going to come up with a change.

“In the dressing room I’m saying to them that I hope they come back with the same formation because there was something that we saw that we were working on and it was working, it’s just that we didn’t get the necessary goal.

“I knew it was going to be difficult in the second half, obviously when you have got nothing to lose you throw everything forward that’s what they did.

“It was more frustrating to us, but at times you have to do what you don’t like when at the end the ultimate is something that pleases you.

“If it is pleasing at the end, irrespective of the process your objective is achieved.

“We don’t want to play ugly and win, we want to play good football and win. Our second half was not aspiring.

“We took the three points, we are happy and move on.

“The first match he changed his formation by making a substitution, today he manipulated players.”
