Three Players Komphela Singled Out v Sundowns
Steve Komphela Sees Positives For Kaizer Chiefs
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.
