Komphela On Soweto Derby: We’ve Won Those That Do Not Matter
Kaizer Chiefs Coach Steve Komphela Admits He Has Won The Soweto Derbies That Do Not Matter
Kaizer Chiefs Head Coach Steve Komphela says that he understands that he has won the Soweto derbies that do not matter.
Komphela is yet to get a domestic victory over Orlando Pirates during his time as the Amakhosi helm, however, admitting that winning the Carling Black Label Cup over the Buccaneers does not count for much.
“Maybe we won the ones that do not matter most, it is a fact and again, I am not a defensive person, I expose myself to bullets and take it on the chin,” Komphela told the media after his 3-1 loss to their rivals.
“But I strongly believe that even before I came to Orlando Pirates, there (are) matches where we’ve won and would I have felt good that Chiefs wins all the derbies? Listen, that would have been tremendous and the previous derbies it was a helluva nice match even though it ended in a draw and this one, again, I wish I was Micho where I will just be (asked) positive questions at the back of a good match, but unfortunately you have to defend or give reasons.
“If you don’t have results you have to explain so this is what I am here for, but I strongly believe I would have loved to win all the derbies but previously there (were) matches where I was on the bench with other teams and we did win, at Chiefs we did win but the ones that are not counted for,” he added.
