Johannesburg - Following the appointment of the new head coach Steve Komphela for the upcoming season, Kaizer Chiefs spokesperson Vina Maphosa has confirmed that there is no specific mandate for the new mentor.
Chiefs enjoyed a tremendous 2014/15 ABSA Premiership campaign as they walked away with the league and the MTN8 titles under Stuart Baxter.
Maphosa told Sport24 that despite signing a three-year deal with the former Maritzburg United coach without a certain mandate, the club remain ambitious and will be expected to continue where they left off last season.
Maphosa also hinted that their main objective is to continue with their culture of bringing silverwares in Naturena.
“There is no special mandate for the coach," said Maphosa.
“In fact all Chiefs coaches’ from the past and the present shares one mandate.
“And that mandate is to win trophies for the team because that is our culture and we intend to keep it this way.
“There are four competitions on offer in the PSL so their mandate is to make sure we win trophies.
“Steve (Komphela) has signed a three year contract with Chiefs and we believe that he’ll bring a further success to the club in those years.
“He doesn’t have a specific target to reach this season, but the club is always ambitious.”
Komphela will begin his MTN8 defence against his former team, Maritzburg United, in the quarter-finals next month.
