Komphela’s Point Of Reference: Compares Chiefs To Sundowns
Steve Komphela Compares Chiefs To Sundowns
Steve Komphela has used Mamelodi Sundowns as a point of reference in trying to maintain consistency for Kaizer Chiefs.
Chiefs are preparing for their Nedbank Cup semi-final match, which will be at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Saturday.
Amakhosi are coming from a 1-0 win in their most recent match, a league clash against Platinum Stars this past weekend.
“If you make too many changes consistently, you don’t strike consistency. Let’s go maybe at Mamelodi Sundowns, because it is very important not to say things, but have points of reference. How long have they been together? For quite some time, and you can feel that. Sometimes, you as a coach, players end up teaching you, because of the level of understanding between the players as something you see coming through,” Komphela told the media.
“If you see a Tight (Joseph Molangoane) and Rama (Ramahlwe Mphahlele) playing together… they give you another dynamic that you had never learnt in coaching… that you never had in your head, they are now giving you information based on how they interrelate. Six months in a cubicle at your work with a person, working alongside is different than when they come. But if they change that person consistently, you end up not knowing who is next, and it does not strike consistency, and as a result, there’s not going to be any performance,” said Amakhosi’s head coach.
