Komphela: Blame Me, Not Chiefs Players

Kaizer Chiefs’ head coach, Steve Komphela, wants to make sure that his players don’t end up feeling the heat from fans, by taking on the burden on his own shoulders.
 
 
The Amakhosi lost 1-0 to Chippa United on Wednesday evening as they went five Absa Premiership games without defeat, slipping down the table into seventh place thanks to a goal from Abel Mabaso.
 
Responding to talk of ‘Steve Must Go’ from the Glamour Boys’ fans, Komphela says that it’s better if he takes the heat and not his charges.
 
He told SuperSport TV, “As a coach you don’t want to see a scenario where the players end up feeling the heat… It’s better that it stays with the coach, and we’ll keep working for them.”
 
Meanwhile, regarding the game itself, Komphela was shocked once again with Chiefs’ inability to find the back of the net.
 
He said, “The biggest error, I remember it vividly, is the early goal. Had it not been for that then it could’ve been different. But what do you do? You dust yourself off, go back and work again.
 
“We committed an error right at the beginning and it was the defining moment. In the second half there was only one team on the park, and the number of chances we created was more than them. The only thing we needed to do was put it in the net. You don’t know when this ball is going to go in the net.”
 
Chiefs now face Platinum Stars this weekend as they look to avoid going six league games without a win for the first time since this time last year.
