Komphela On Moon & Chiefs Title Chances

Steve Komphela Still Has Title Hopes For Kaizer Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 20, 2018 10:50 AM

Steve Komphela still has faith that Kaizer Chiefs can overtake Mamelodi Sundowns to win the Absa Premiership this season.

The Amakhosi are now eight games unbeaten in the league as they make a late push for the title, and with nine games left to go, they do still have a fighting chance.

After beating Cape Town City over the weekend, Chiefs put a big dent in City’s title aspirations, with Ryan Moon again on the scoresheet as he scored for the fifth time in his last six games. 

Speaking to the club’s official website, Komphela praised the 21-year-old and his teammates for their performance against the Citizens. He said, “The guy is ready to pounce at every opportunity that comes his way… Leonardo Castro and Daniel Cardoso also did very well.”

Meanwhile, when it comes to their title bid, he added, “There are still nine matches to go, which means that there are still a lot of points to play for. This win is a great confidence booster. But to be able to challenge for the league title, we have to dig deep. We are looking forward to (pushing) Sundowns to the end.”

The Amakhosi are currently four points behind Masandawana as we enter the final third of the season, with only seven points separating the top six teams in the league.

Chiefs host Celtic on Saturday evening at 20h15 as they look to keep their unbeaten run going, and could potentially close the gap on Sundowns even further.

@luyandakankoccie Yes you right we take time to get off the starting blocks but it doesn't mean we don't create chances, i have to agree with you if the link between Ntshangase and Ekstein can be realized then we be a menace to a lot of teams.

@ksleg the only time chiefs is creating you must be refering to 2nd half when he introduce ekstain and shabba.......... all KC 1st half are dull bro, you can not expect ntshangase to be productive alone trying to link up with the 2 out n out strikers........... just imagine if ekstain and ntshangase can link up together going forward the mboro aka malongoana will join them shabba on the other side or even zuma........

@luyandakankoccie I do not know which games you have been watching but from my view we creating ample of scoring chances, and its only now that we have Moon who is there to seal those chances although a lot can be done to convert these chances.

Moon is just a lucky cow, he lack many qualities a strike should possess. He's no thread with ball on his feet, he's not quick, he's weak and get easily shoved off the ball,no skill to eliminate defenders, he's useless despite the goals he scored recently

@SL_hated_donkey But game on hand is not 3 point you need to win before you count those points so on my opinion if chief is serious can win the league only if the wining their games not relying to the other teams.

@#mavela Can't you see that FAU is harmless to Dunu? I mean, Dunu donated 4 points to FAU but still ahead of FAU by 4 points and a game in hand!

Yes, Moon has been scoring goals recently for FAU. But if you check well with football eye, you will see that the boy has been lucky to score those goals. He is always lost in a game, struggles to trap the ball and dribbles defenders, but there are some FAU's fans out there saying he is a Hot-property and deserves Bafana call-up. Hehe hehe hehe.

What is the meaning of "Chiefs have a great chance to win the league"? Chiefs are 4 points behind Downs, and Downs have a game in hand. As things stand, Downs can afford to lose 2 games and draw one, and still sitting on top. Komphela is misleading Chiefs' fans here. Yes, it is possible but likely impossible!

Chief's is not one skipa is a big team it's good to dream about wining rather than focusing on the top 8 the all season. Khosi4life.
