Three Players Komphela Singled Out v Sundowns

Steve Komphela Sees Positives For Kaizer Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 29, 2018 10:06 AM
Steve Komphela reserved special praise for three of Kaizer Chiefs’ players following the 0-0 draw with Mamelodi Sundowns, a result that sees them stay five points behind.
 
 
The Amakhosi put in a solid performance at a buzzing FNB Stadium on Saturday as two of South Africa’s ‘Big Three’ went toe-to-toe in Soweto, and while there were no goals on the night, there were plenty of positives to take for the Glamour Boys’ head coach. 
 
Komphela singled out a trio of his players, telling the club’s official website, “George Maluleka was fantastic in midfield, Willard Katsande was top and Ryan Moon made some very good runs. It was a very good game to watch.”
 
Meanwhile, he also remains hopeful of a title push from his side, insisting that they could’ve gotten all three points against Masandawana. 
 
 
He said, “We wanted to win. We would have loved to do that. However, it’s more one of regret than disappointment. The game finished nil-nil, so the gap is still five points. Now we go our different ways to try to get the three points. 
 
“The league is a marathon, not a sprint. You have to know how to pace yourselves. There was some good energy, but we, as coaches, always want a result, which we didn’t really get. Games of this magnitude are decided on small margins.”
 
Chiefs’ next game sees them face Bidvest Wits on Saturday evening.

G12 fantastic....this idiot, we need someone who will drive us forward, like Jali. Your fantastic means defending, Katsande is there to defend. Steve you are useless and clueless.

Players that impressed me the most , Zuma ,Tau, Maluleke, all three centre defence for chiefs were solid, but Soumahoro put in a MOTM performance for me.

Steve thought Sundowns was gonna come at him so he can hurt them at breaks but they didn't. Pitso didn't attack as usual because he knows how he lost the last time and his defence is slow so he didn't want to take chances.

Starting 11 for me should be simple 4-1-3-2, RB:Malongoane CB:Ngezane CB:Cardoso LB:Zulu just infront of the defenders it must be CDM:Katsande infront of Katsande we must have Zum, Ntshangase, Ekstein then our striker would be Castro and Paez

For my opinion Moon suppose to be in Kompela’s plan b if he had one. Moon is not good with his legs but excellent with head. Kompela’s plan A must not include Moon as they make short passes to get through the defense but if they fail to break through then we change our style of play by playing with crosses and that’s where Moon should come in coz he can also position himself very well. Kompela is playing with a lot of defensive players, if I can count it’s 7 with no attacking midfielder at all. It explains why we always have a lot of draws. Steve is afraid of a change because now he has everything to win his games clearly. He can now start to have planB coz we do have players.
