Maponyane Believes Chiefs Don’t Need New Coach

Former Kaizer Chiefs striker, Marks Maponyane, is adamant that coach, Steve Komphela, is being unfairly judged by the Amakhosi faithful.

Speaking to Soccer Laduma in the latest edition, 964, the analyst revealed that calls for the former Maritzburg United mentor to step down should not be entertained as the coach is being unfairly judged.

“I don’t think the high pressure on Steve Komphela is due. I don’t think he should be replaced and I can tell you why.

“Steve Komphela is not compared with Steve Komphela. He is compared with Stuart Baxter, which is obviously not fair. Komphela is a new coach with aged players at his disposal,” Maponyane told Soccer Laduma.

With the Amakhosi having suffered their fourth consecutive defeat following a 1-0 loss to Jomo Cosmos, a large section of the fans at the FNB Stadium showed their displeasure of the former Free State Stars coach, by chanting “Komphela Must Go” and tearing apart barricades.

Despite their disappointing form, Maponyane believes that Chiefs need to reinforce their current squad with more quality.

“What he needs is to bring in new players in many positions. That will always take a year or two for any coach. The problem is that the so-called big teams do not have time. The fans do not have patience, while the club probably does,” Maponyane told Soccer Laduma.
