Komphela: We Lacked Energy

Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela felt his charges lacked energy during their 3-0 defeat to Chippa United.

The AmaKhosi missed the chance to close the gap on Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns after going down at the FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Komphela concurred that they put up an ‘unspiring and lacklustre’ performance after the game.

“I think that’s exactly what we said in the dressing room at halftime. One has to also consider that this is our third match in seven days, but it’s no excuse everybody goes through that," Komphela told SuperSport after the game.

“I thought we lacked energy, and you could see from our actions and reactions we were always second best.

“In a match like this, when teams are opportunistic and have luck on their side, you hardly win them. If you look at the first goal, it was from our own error. It looked like someone put a pause on us.

“It happened with the second and third goal as well. Obviously, you started seeing there was no energy. Apart from losing the match, congratulations to Chippa.

“I thought we had more than enough chances, but we take it (the loss) on the chin. Could it have been better? Yes for sure."
