Komphela: We Were Playing To Win

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 25, 2018 09:06 AM

Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela felt the 0-0 draw with Bloemfontein Celtic was a missed opportunity to edge closer to Absa Premier leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

Chiefs failed to close the gap with the league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns as they were held to a goalless draw by Celtic on Saturday.

“A chance missed. Looking at how the game unfolded, we didn’t create clear-cut chances even though we could see they sit on top of the box trying to find a way,” he said post-match.

What’s interesting to note for Komphela the fact that they never managed to test Patrick Tignyemb in one-on-one scenarios.

“Today we never saw the keeper one-on-one, which is something we do very often and we regret that. This is a time we should have scored one or two to narrow the gap by a match.

“Sitting on one point, we didn’t lose it. We playing to win and the fact that we didn’t win nor lose it either, but it was crucial for us (to win) this was a massive opportunity to win it and get closer to Sundowns,” he said.

Looking ahead to the Soweto derby with Orlando Pirates, it’s set to be an interesting affair for the former Bafana Bafana assistant coach and he believes the current style of both is the definition of the South African game.

“It’s going to be very interesting looking at the game orders of both. It’s one match I think based on how Pirates have been playing and how we have been playing, tacticians should look at it as the definition of the game in South African football,” he said.

Your substitutions last night were terrible. You left those who were not performing on the field and replaced those who were doing good job. I rest my case

Moon is only effective with his head and the person who provide him with those crosses is Shabba.Poor coach put him on the bench. I have never seen a stupid coach like this.

@mountainofmolotov true that moon is only good with his head that's all he should hv substituded him as we didn't hv enough crosses for him to finish he must start Castro with Parker in the next game n bench George Maluleke hes not effective whether we attack or defend just hes khompela's favourite he should hv just played Ngezane n Meyiwa n not add maluleka

Coach I'm now convinced that you didn't want to win the game..yesterday you should have gone for broke since dunusa drew the game earlier..why did you took out the most effective player on the field Castro?...instead you should've subbed Moon and played Parker as ur no10 and Castro as no9..or the least you should've started with shabba parker and ntshangase because it seems that is our most effective attacking trio @present..coach you really blew it just admit it especially with your late subs bcos I think you took too long to do subs..
