Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana captain Lucas Radebe says that there will always be massive pressure associated with coaching a side like Kaizer Chiefs.
Radebe played for the Glamour Boys from 1989 to 1994 before moving to Leeds United in England where he would go on to secure legend status, but he still has a soft spot for Chiefs.
Speaking at the launch of the Copa Coca Cola Schools Programme in Durban, Radebe backed current Chiefs coach Steve Komphela to come good.
Komphela took over from Stuart Baxter at the start of the season, and missed out on an opportunity to lift his first trophy at the club when Chiefs lost 1-0 to Ajax Cape Town in the final of the MTN8 Cup on September 19.
"I think Steve will try and impose his philosophy of football at Kaizer Chiefs which is going to be difficult because it is a massive club. He deals with big name players," Radebe said.
"Following Stuart Baxter’s legacy at the club is going to be tough. But I think he’s got the capacity. He can change it around.
"You’re always going to be under pressure if you take on a big team like that. It’s a team that has been successful for years."
Chiefs are next in action on Wednesday, September 23 when they host the University of Pretoria.
Kick-off is at 19:30.
