There could be trouble brewing for Steve Komphela at Kaizer Chiefs if results don’t improve after the international break, with the club reportedly considering his future.
Kaizer Chiefs’ opening two games, against Bidvest Wits in the Absa Premiership and Cape Town City in the MTN8, saw their poor run of form stretch to just one win in 15 games in all competitions, and there seems to be growing concerns about Komphela’s position.
While the club have publicly backed their head coach for the future despite the results, it is thought that there have been discussions about a replacement should things not improve drastically.
As reported in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, Chiefs’ management are organising talks with Komphela – possibly over the international break – to discuss the way forward, with a vote of no confidence possibly on the cards if things don’t get better.
Meanwhile, public opinion on Komphela’s reign seems to be split as the fans wait for their first victory since April, with some believing he needs to be shown the door and others saying that he needs more time.
