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.
