Johannesburg - Free State Stars coach Steve Komphela has distanced himself from
reports suggesting he could leave the club for Kaizer Chiefs next
Ea Lla Koto let a one-goal lead slip late on against Amakhosi on
Saturday, with Sthembiso Ngcobo and Lincoln Zvasiya cancelling out
Edward Manqele's 14th minute opener to hand the Soweto giants a 2-1
The result saw Stars drop to fifth in the standings while Chiefs closed the gap at the top of the table to just one point.
Speaking to the club's official website, Komphela insisted he has no intention of leaving the Free State outfit.
"I think I have reported enough on those rumors and I don't think
there is any better explanation I can make; I am currently committed to
Free State Stars and I am working where I am comfortable, and the team
is doing well," he said.
"Speculations will always remain speculations and the more
response you give to speculations the more pre-emptive you become so I
don't want to make people think outside of what I am trying to think
Stars will have the chance to redeem themselves on Wednesday when
they take on PSL table-toppers Mamelodi Sundowns at the Charles Mopeli
Stadium in the final round of fixtures for the year.
