Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela is the next mentor in the firing line, after losing 3-1 at home to fierce rivals Orlando Pirates in the ABSA Premiership on Saturday.
Critics have pointed out that he’s failed to win easy games, enduring draws in the PSL and also losing their biggest games in the MTN8 Final, and now against Bucs.
Komphela’s defense of his defeat will be received with scepticism in South Africa.
“We didn’t have a great reaction after the absorbing two games against Mpumalanga Black Aces and I think that affected our recovery,” Komphela told Goal.com
“I don’t think the defence reacted very well against Pirates, and I can’t really say that affected us or not but it worked against us and our opposition won,” he added.
It is surprising that Komphela is talking about fixture congestion when Pirates have had the worst run of games and less rest, due to the Caf Confederation Cup.
“We won’t sit down and moan. We have to rise from this defeat as there are many more games that we have to play, starting with Golden Arrows on Tuesday,” Komphela concluded to Goal.com
The coach knows he needs to get Chiefs back on track, as the supporters are used to title races so the club needs to keep up with Mamelodi Sundowns.
