Chiefs' Komphela On The Talk In Dressing Room…

Steve Komphela Has Revealed What His Team Talk Was During Half-Time Of The Soweto Derby

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 04, 2018 06:59 PM

Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela has revealed what his team talk was like during half-time of the Soweto derby, while the score was still at 1-1.

Chiefs managed to pull a goal back after Orlando Pirates took the lead during the early minutes of the encounter on Saturday, but they were unable to continue on to seal a victory.

Following their 3-1 defeat to Pirates, Head Coach Komphela went on to explain what he told his side during the half-time period, adding that Chiefs will look to use their upcoming Nedbank Cup fixture against Stellenbosch as a form of therapy following their result in the Absa Premiership.

“That talk in the dressing room, just 10 seconds before we left the dressing room, we made it clear that, listen we have had a good first half, we dominated, we played well, we need to kill that game and get those goals,” he revealed.

“I don’t know how it works but my experience in the derbies, if you have a good first half, the second half goes to the other team, for whatever reason, I don’t know why and I said, God forbid it shouldn’t be.

“The beauty of it, we are playing Nedbank (Cup), Stellenbosch (and) that should come in as therapy, I hope we go through that match, win properly and gain momentum and forget. I don’t think we will sleep until tomorrow morning when we go for (regeneration), maybe after (regeneration) tomorrow they will sweat, but this thing will stick with them. So how do you get rid of it? You just keep focus and you focus on the next match. You can’t change what happened today but you can only learn from the mistakes that you’ve committed,” Komphela added.

Be smart coach Stevie. Speak like Micho. Do not promise that you are chasing the league. Say you are building for next season. Your team is work in progress, far behind Micho's work in progress. The intensity of games when attacking , lacks purpose and direction. Count shots on target when playing. You seem to waffle without identifying why you draw and lose so many matches. You have strikers, but you fail to service them. Get that sorted out. Stellebonsch will send you packing if you fail to get things in order.

pirates won on our mistakes not really on what they dd it tactically. two gifted goals n players not coming out of the dressing room with their minds early on n we duly got punished. I hope is the nedbank.

We lost to a better team on the day. Pie rats wanted it most. Those players are more hungry than ours. The only blander coach Steve made was taking out Meyiwa and bringing on that lazy Ekstein. Ekstein is lazy, not committed, can't read the game etc. I think he should be sold not loaned. If I was in Steve's shoes I would take Ngezane out and bring on Ntshangase and then replace Moon with Parker. Paeez is also not delivering. But I accept the defeat and will continue supporting Steve.

@llumadi, on Friday, @wash & wear placed it on record that he had bought a lot of heavy drinks to celebrate fau's victory over Bucs come Saturday night, this idiot has been hard to come by since his team was reduced to amateurs by Mighty Bucs. I suspect he must have been drinking so heavily since Saturday night, just to cope with stress.
