Komphela On Katsande And Khune Errors: We Don’t Play A Blame Game

Steve Komphela Says That He Does Not Want To Put Fingers At Individual Players After His Side's Loss Against Orlando Pirates

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 04, 2018 10:30 AM

Kaizer Chiefs head coach, Steve Komphela thinks that football is also about making mistakes and does not want to point fingers for how his side conceded three goals yesterday.

Orlando Pirates hosted Kaizer Chiefs in a thrilling Soweto derby encounter in the Absa Premiership on Saturday, where the Buccaneers claimed the bragging rights after beating Amakhosi 3-1 on the day.

Speaking to the media after the match, Komphela revealed that despite the moments in the game where errors were committed, he does not want to point fingers at the likes of Willard Katsande and Itumeleng Khune, who were involved in trying moments during the game.

“We don’t play a blame game, we own up and it is part of responsibility and ownership, we don’t look at anywhere first, you look at the mirror and say let me look at myself first,” Komphela said in a post-match conference.

“Now, when it is more of a collective, than individuals because you need them after this match, we have another match to play and we don’t point fingers. I think in the scenario, the Katsande scenario, first goal, we failed to clear the ball from the left side and of a small box and it developed and got back again. When it went to the right side of the box, the damage had already been done so it is just a pity that Katsande tried to clear the ball and then went back, it is a mistake from us.” 

“But, football is a game of mistakes, if mistakes are not committed, how are goals going to be scored? If you look at all of this, even our set-play goals, their second goal, their third, players must make mistakes but it is just a pity that when you look at that you don’t want to put blame on players which obviously applies to Khune and not only Khune, our team has never conceded more than two goals this season and I am sure that we are carrying the best defensive record even though we are not a defensive team.”

"So, that we conceded three, obviously to go down badly, and worst against your arch-rivals; he doesn’t have to be hard on himself. We have seen goalkeepers concede, four, five, but that he conceded three you have to look back and check where there were mistakes and how to rectify that. But again, let’s look at the save he pulled, there is a great save that he pulled, twice in fact at that defines him as a goalkeeper,” he added.

I dont c any mistake from Khune ..The guy alwys give 100% of his effort...1st goal ws too far he ws clossing his angle..2nd one ws taken beautifully its even touches the pole before its went in its ws also too far...3rd one ws too fast stricker ws still wth a deffender coming torwards him its rly hard to get enough tym for keeper to c whr ws the direction of the ball..we all saw the saves he did his still the number 1 who plays wth cows ...
