I am very disappointed – Komphela

“There’s nothing much to say.” These were the words of coach Steve Komphela after having watched his side’s unacceptable showing last night in Rustenburg. “I am disappointed to say the least. We didn’t play at all; especially in the first half we were lethargic.”

The 2-0 loss to Platinum Stars saw Komphela fuming after the match: “This is not on. We only started playing after conceding the goal. And, look at their goals. Once again we let ourselves down by lapses of concentration in the box. We didn’t show the hunger to win this match.”

Ironically, Platinum Stars sealed their victory through Enocent Mkhabela’s 44th minute goal. Mkhabela is a Chiefs player on loan at Dikwena.

“Stars deserved this win,” added Komphela. “They showed hunger and they didn’t allow us space to play – credit to them. As for us, it is back to the drawing board to rectify this situation.”

The loss extended Amakhosi’s winless run in the league to five matches. “We are going back to training to prepare for the last game of the season,” concluded Komphela. “To win that fixture we will need improvement from tonight’s performance.”

Meanwhile, Chiefs’ last fixture of the 2016/17 Absa Premiership is against the team that was crowned Champions on Wednesday evening. “Congratulations to Wits,” commented Komphela. “They have done well and Gavin Hunt deserves praise for his sterling job with his team.”
