Komphela Praises Amakhosi Debutant, Says Finishing Is A Concern

Teenage Hadebe waited a long time to make his debut for Kaizer Chiefs, but Steve Komphela was satisfied with how the Zimbabwean played as he made his Amakhosi bow.
 
 
Chiefs were unable to keep up their seven-game winning streak against AmaZulu on Wednesday evening, although Hadebe was part of the defence as they kept their fifth clean sheet in their last six matches.
 
The Amakhosi did miss a number of chances once again as they failed to find the back of the net, although their head coach thinks that there are positives to take from the encounter – despite missing the chance to move up to second place.
 
Komphela explained the reasoning behind leaving Erick Mathoho out, telling the club’s official website, “Teenage gave us the balance in our backline of three centre backs because he’s left-footed. I thought he passed the test on debut.” 
 
 
Regarding the improvements made – and needed in the squad, he added, “We have a lot of homework to do. We have worked hard on our defence and have recorded numerous clean sheets. We are happy with that. Our finishing, however, remains a concern. We will work on it though and hope to improve in our next match.”
 
The next match that Komphela talks of sees Chiefs face Free State Stars at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, with the club looking to get back to winning ways.
