Johannesburg-Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela he is not weakened and will not resign in spite of the furious fans from the small FNB Stadium that witness the 3-0 loss to Chippa United on Saturday afternoon.
Chippa United humiliated Amakhosi on the day. The results left the Glamour Boys in fourth place and 10 points behind log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns who recorded a 2-1 victory against Baroka FC on Sunday afternoon.
Chiefs mathematically are out of the title chase, but Khomphela remains optimistic as he will go back to the drawing board and try to shift focus for the Nedbank Cup tie against Free State Stars.
“If you are a proud person‚ sacrifice and responsibility are part of the components of the job,” Komphela said as quoted by TimesLIVE.
“I’m not allowing my emotions to become negative because that will deflate you. You have to try and stay positive.
“The way out of it is to club together as a group of players and coaches.”
The philosophical coach continued: “You cannot imagine a scenario where there is a cold wind coming from outside and you are opening the cracks even further.
“Sometimes when something bad happens from outside‚ it brings you together. Can we use this result to get closer and push when we play in the semis (of the Nedbank Cup)?
“It could be,” he concluded.
