JOHANNESBURG: With his future at Naturena on the thinnest ice than ever now, Komphela has revealed he finds questions to him about his future at Chiefs very difficult to entertain.
Steve Komphela saw his side go down 3-1 to rivals Orlando Pirates, bringing about questions on what the future holds for him in terms of remaining as Kaizer Chiefs’ coach, with his current deal expiring at the end of the season. The coach who joined the club nearly three seasons ago says that he is realistic to himself but finds having to answer about his future extremely tough.
“The question is so difficult, I don’t want to sound arrogant, and you can imagine if the question, does it bother you? All I can say is, we have to be very realistic as professionals and you should never be in denial in any circumstances of scenario,” he said.
“Football is about pressure, always pressure, and you don’t want to do your job and perform your duties with some question marks and as I always said, I hate fielding this question but I will just try to respond again in a manner that’s proper,” pondered Komphela.
Komphela will now have to switch his focus on the one piece of silverware left within his reach, the Nedbank Cup and perhaps save his blushes at Naturena. He will hope his troops get past National First Division side Stellenbosch FC in a last 16 tie at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday night and advance to the last 8 of the competition.
