Two Wins: Komphela’s Horror Record v Pirates

Steve Komphela Hasn't Beaten Orlando Pirates Often

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 05, 2018 11:01 AM
Steve Komphela’s wait for a league win over Orlando Pirates was extended over the weekend, with Kaizer Chiefs yet to beat their Soweto rivals in normal time since his arrival.

Speaking about his record against the Buccaneers after the 3-1 defeat on Saturday afternoon, Komphela told the media, “Before I came here, there are matches I won against Pirates. So I have won many matches against Pirates before.” 
 
Looking back though, the Amakhosi’s head coach has only beaten Pirates on two occasions in the Absa Premiership since 2008, once with Maritzburg United in 2014 and once with Free State Stars three years previously back in 2011. 
 
 
Komphela did see the Glamour Boys beat their bitter rivals in his first season with Chiefs, but only after a penalty shootout in the Telkom Knockout and three of his eight encounters since joining the club have ended in defeat.
 
Since the 50-year-old took over as co-head coach of Ea Lla Koto in 2008 and has faced Pirates in 17 league matches, winning just two, with a win ratio of just 11%. Nine of those games have seen his sides – FSS, Platinum Stars, Maritzburg or Chiefs – fail to score.
 
Do you think Steve Komphela deserves a new contract at Kaizer Chiefs?

Alex Ferguson also struggled at United when he arrived , the first 5 years were hell. Then, he started getting it right with young players mixed with experienced ones. Stevie is doing the same thing. He stuck with his young guns in a difficult and important match. The future looks promising, despite the pain now. Give him more time.

With teams like pierats and downs in the league, Bafana Bafana will never be the good team, because at Bafana muti can't be used. #muti beat Amakhosi and all the other teams rats and dunus beat.mxm

If they hired him to beat Pirates then he doesnt deserve a new contract one. But if he is there to compete, let chiefs extend his stay. You question though editor. Tell me what do you think?

@chiefs is useless, it is true brother. It's not that Chiefs is bad. It was Bucs that was too good on the day. They are not the first one to loose in that fashion. Downs, the log leaders and just recently Chippa suffered the same fate.

Prof Komphela invited this verifiable data by talking too much.
