Chiefs Confirm Komphela’s Immediate Future?
Kaizer Chiefs seem to have given confirmation that Steve Komphela’s job at the club is not in immediate danger, saying that circumstances mean they can’t make changes now.
Komphela is under immense pressure at present as Chiefs look set to miss out on the Absa Premiership title for the third consecutive year, with the 3-0 defeat to Chippa United on Saturday ending with the head coach and his players being pelted with missiles from the crowd.
The Siya crew revealed shortly after the game that a team meeting had been called, and that the meeting was to discuss the failure of the team in recent years.
That meeting has since been confirmed by the club – who said it went on for five whole hours – but those calling for Komphela’s head will not be seeing him leaving just yet.
Part of Chiefs’ statement read, “One of the notable decisions from the meeting is that decisive changes will have to be implemented at the end of the season to remedy the situation. At this stage, circumstances do not permit for us to make immediate changes. However, we are looking to have a complete overhaul of the team before the commencement of the new season.”
Chiefs’ words could also suggest that Komphela may be part of the ‘decisive changes’ that will be made at the end of the season, but the lack of ‘immediate changes’ seemingly points to the fact that he will see out his current contract.
