Komphela Regrets Celtic Draw, Loss Of Points

Steve Komphela Regrets Kaizer Chiefs' Latest Draw

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 26, 2018 01:08 PM
Kaizer Chiefs’ Steve Komphela says that he regrets not taking the opportunity to close the gap on Mamelodi Sundowns after the Amakhosi’s disappointing home draw with Bloemfontein Celtic. 
 
 
With Masandawana failing to secure maximum points against both Free State Stars and SuperSport United last week, the Glamour Boys were handed a big opportunity to improve their Absa Premiership title credentials against Siwelele on Saturday. 
 
However, Komphela’s team were once again unable to find the back of the net, and they ended up dropping to third place behind Orlando Pirates by the time the weekend was over, and are still five points behind the league leaders.
 
Speaking about the game, Chiefs’ head coach admitted that failing to score was upsetting, saying that it is a night that he will regret. 
 
He told the club’s official website, “We had so many attempts on goal, we should have scored at least one. You live to regret a night like this. 
 
 
“We could have closed the gap to Sundowns… We discussed the result at half-time, just to highlight the need to get the three points. We need to draw lessons from this loss of two points.” 
 
Now though, Komphela is turning his head to this week’s Soweto Derby, which – given the league positions – could prove to be the most important clash between the Soweto giants in recent years.
 
He said, “We have a big week ahead of us. The Soweto Derby will be a defining game. I hope that we will come out as lions and tigers. I foresee sparks. It will be a great match to watch.”
 
Chiefs have scored just 19 goals all season so far, with only two clubs – Celtic & Platinum Stars – having scored less.

Like I said before, Stop playing Castro and Moon just play one of them at time, pair one of them with any, the likes of Ntshangase, Ekstein, Shabba, Parker, Paez, Zuma, or Letlotlo.

Discussing Downs results was his blunder, he put his players under immense pressure.

I swear that should Khomphela start with Castro and Moon we will not win the match. Castro has to be pair with Parker. Let Parker do the donkey work and allow Castro to hang in and around the box. Maluleka must be relegated to the bench. Shabba must start the match. In short the team should be- Khune in goals. Ngezana, Cardoso and Hadebe as back three. Shabba and Mphahlele as attacking wingers. Katsande is holding midfielder. Meyiwa and Ntshangase in the middle. Then Parker and Castro upfront. Otherwise we going to allow rats to pin us back and if that happens, we are dead.

I just wonder if he's capable of getting the results nor getting the team somewhere,,I mean the guy always take the wrong decisions when it comes to take off players,,every game when he take Castro off,his team will be under pressure n perform less just like CAPE TOWN CITY's game,,,Celtics game,,,,,STEVE IS JUST UNBELIEVABLE COACH,,HE BETTER PACK HIS BAGS N GO

Why do you always find it easy to replace Ekstien even when he's on top of his game? Ekstien is the best distributor of the ball you've got in the team n yet you bench him!!!!
