Mangena: The Players Must Adjust And Adapt

Former Kaizer Chiefs striker, Mike Mangena, has said that the problems currently facing Kaizer Chiefs come down to the players and their difficulties adjusting to the club’s, and Steve Komphela’s football philosophies.

Chiefs are currently on a six match winless run, their worst run of form in a decade, and coach Steve Komphela has faced criticism for the way he has run the team. However, Mangena has said that the poor form comes down to the players, not the man in the dugout.

“When you get all those new players into a team, it’s seldom that you get players that will gel immediately, because you get different players from all walks of life,” he explained to Soccer Laduma. “You need to understand the philosophy of the club first, and you also have to buy into the philosophy of the coach. When a team is rebuilding, it also takes time for the team to gel.”

The former Watford striker went on to say that the players will need to be given time to adapt to the philosophies, even though the fans expect immediate results.

“Unfortunately, he (Komphela) is in a situation where people just expect results, and if you look at the number of changes in that team, there are quite a lot,” he continued. “So I would say, it’s not about what Steve’s getting wrong, it’s about the players right now that must adjust and adapt.”
