Komphela: We Had To Keep Our Cool

Komphela: We Had To Keep Our Cool

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 21, 2018 06:53 PM
Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela says despite going down to ten men midway in the second half, they had to keep their feet on the ground.
 
 
Joseph Molangoane got a straight following an off the ball incident, and but they were rescued in the end by new signing Leonardo Castro with the winner minutes from full time.
 
“We had to keep our cool, even with the red card. You still need to keep a cool head. You can’t lose it. We just need to have a slight tweak without being obvious of what we’re doing," Komphela told SuperSport TV.
 
“I’m happy for Leo, he scored a great goal, (Ryan) Moon, great goal he scored as well. I thought the overall performance might have been better."
 
Too much turn over in possession is what concerned the Amakhosi mentor, which happened way too often during the course of the game.
 
“I think we’re giving the ball away too much, and when you’re playing against teams like Baroka who are waiting for you to commit that technical error and they pounce, we played into their hands at times.
 
“We shouldn’t do that. We have to go back and look at it again. Good victory, three points. We needed the victory. But there’s still a number of things I felt we could’ve done better,” he said.
 
The substitutions of Leonardo Castro, Siphelele Ntshangase and Dumisani Zuma turned the tie completely on its head, and Komphela believes they were timeous.
 
“I thought the subs were timeous and they did make a difference. Some of the matches are won through what you see and how the players make the difference.
 
“Zuma’s difference is clear, Leo’s clear. I think Siphelele Ntshangase will get to a level where defensively and offensively, he will be part of us.
 
“I thought the subs were ok. There were certain areas, where I thought if we were allowed a fourth substitute we’d go for it but the rules only say three,” he said.

I am a Pirates fan, truly speaking you are doing a great job now Mr steve. I wish Chiefs can give you a new 10 years contract. Good luck on your next game.

Indeed we kept our cool, when you play against small teams you have to be cool once they score a goal they always become "tjatjarag" for you is to wait for the right moment and punish the red card we got did not do any justice to them because Steve did not opt for a defensive tactic .I like you're cool Steve
