Fans were left furious after Chiefs’ 3-0 loss to Chippa United at the weekend, where a number of supporters pelting projectiles at the Amakhosi team after the final whistle.  

“You can’t be oblivious; there are certain things that you prepare yourself for, you get ready for yourself. They are not happy, Chiefs have never lost 3-0 in the way we lost it as well,” Komphela said after the match. 

The Chiefs head coach then went on to say that it will be unfair to expect the supporters to be happy with Amakhosi’s current circumstances, adding that at this point in time he will not run away from the responsibility to stabilise the team.

“Whatever happened you can’t explain and you obviously have to be strong enough to understand that it is not going to be an easy one, did we expect to come out here with them throwing roses at us? It will be unfair of us, the level of expectations is clear and when they react like this, you take it and say listen, it is an opportunity for us not to lose but learn so that we do better. I can’t run away and I am not the kind of guy who runs away from responsibility. 

“You can imagine if I have been, if I ran away, what should happen with the players? My responsibility is to see to it that I own up and help the players, protect the players and see to it that things get stable,” he added.

Chiefs take on relegation-threatened Platinum Stars this weekend.

@Keykey spot on about Katsande not offering us going forward. Hence our coach kept on fielding him. And his formation is what lead us to this predicament.

I have known Chiefs supporters for donkey years. Normally some would be criticizing what transpired at fnb on Sunday. The fact that none of us speaks against the actions of the supporters should make Steve understand that everyone believes that he is useless and his presence at the club is no longer appreciated. He has failed.

@Keykey I have never seen a coach this stubborn. This guy is clearly delusional. Any coach in his position would've resigned long ago. Is he being forced to stay on as coach...I'm beginning to suspect that maybe he is being advised to stay on against his own will. Could it be that he has lost his mind...maybe because his tactics are not those of a normal person.

Just finish the season and leave us in peace,can't wait to see the back of you.. you made us into laughing stock with your defensive tactics and boring football,how long must we play the likes of Kadzande who for me is giving us nothing going forward.. defensive players must also play a role when attacking.. e.g Kroos,Nyatama,Kekana,Mabunda,Y eye,Sergio Busquet etc. What do you expect playing Kadzande & Meyiwa with three central defenders?? Malongoane has been forced to play from a defensive position while he is an attack minded kind of a player.. Jayiya was forced to play defensive whereas he's an attacking player.. if we can't score with set pieces we are likely not to score.. we are very predictable .. Castro is collecting ball from the middle of the park which is very bad for a striker.. just resign coach you failed us & it's enough

Bro Steve, we don't hate you and we have nothing personal against you. However, under your mentorship Chiefs has deteriorated into a laughing stock. It is clear to us as supporters that the club is too big for you. It is even hard to imagine why you are clinging to that seat like a leach. We understand when you say you wanna take responsibility, but we are also mindful of the fact that resigning is another form of taking responsibility since it is clear that you have failed. At this stage we strongly believe that Chiefs has the potential and the players to do much better that what the team has achieved this season, hence our anger. Your team selection, and more especially your tactical awareness are two main factors that lead us to believe that you have failed. There was a time when most of us could see that we didn't have the material. Right now the picture is different. Please stop being stubborn and do the right thing by resigning.

I knew Steve will never win anything meaningful with Chiefs but to some extent I think he is now a victim of circumstances. Chiefs signed cowz and donkiz and accompanied by suspension of corrupt match officials I dnt think Chiefs will win anything in seasons to come.

That was just a trailer of the real movie you will see on Saturday after dropping points again to Platinum stars. If you think a lacklustre team like yours will walk away with 3 points from a Platinum stars team that is starting believe they can now escape the relegation zone, well Mr Kompela you better go there with Mr Bheki Cele by your side.

After serious analysis of what is happening at chiefs you can't blame Steve komphela he has done wonders for his team as a coach considering that he has build a mixture of young,unknown players mixing them with the old,slow paced and not hungrier as before.My advice is to keep steve and next season be given a second chance then you will see what im talking about.good luck to chiefs and the family
