Times are tough for the Khosi Nation; this is plain for all to see. In Kaizer Chiefs' most recent league game, they played out to a 1-1 draw against Platinum Stars at FNB Stadium. After the match, Steve Komphela had to be escorted from the field under security supervision. Some supporters believe this is not the way Chiefs fans should treat their coaches.
There has been much negativity aimed aimed at coach Komphela as the Glamour Boys remain winless in their past 16 competitive encounters. However, one supporter has voiced his displeasure at the abuse sent Steve's way, and has called for the supporters' patience.
"I supported and followed Steve when he was playing for Free State Stars, supported him while playing for Chiefs, Bafana Bafana. I supported him in Turkey, watched him grow from being a player, captain and eventually coaching at both club and national levels. He never failed then and he will not fail at Chiefs because some idiots don't know the difference between coaching and singing in the stands. After the Platinum Stars robbery, Steve is to blame? The ball did not cross the line; how is that Steve's doing? He was on the touchline and some fools that paid R40 thought they have a right to abuse him? Sies! The season is still young, there is plenty time for us to collect points and be in contention for league honours. Kaizer Chiefs are on the right path, given what happened last season after being dumped by Baxter, who did not give a damn what supporters said. Not once was he booed or threatened with violence. #HandsOffSteve." – MasterLu
Kaizer Chiefs play Highlands Park next, away from home, and the clock is ticking for Komphela as certain supporters' calls for patience will only be relevant for a certain amount of time.
Do you think a defeat on Tuesday could mean the end of Steve's reign at the club?
