Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela admits he can't quite put his finger on the reason for his side's stuttering start to the new campaign.
Already at this early stage of the season, Komphela is under pressure with the team having struggled to get out of the starting blocks.
Chiefs lost their league opener 2-1 against Wits and were also dumped out of the MTN8 by newcomers Cape Town City FC last week.
"I wish I could put my finger on that. You never know what goes on in a man's mind. But the pressure at Chiefs is just steep," Komphela told KickOff, when asked about his side's struggles in front of goal.
"Because the minute you start highlighting it, it starts to swallow them and they're seasoned professionals these guys. They know the minute you get signed at Chiefs you just have to embrace the pressure.
"Let them enjoy the moment and as soon as they start winning they will see that pressure turning into pleasure.
"One would hope that what you see at training gets translated to matches. Adaptation is again not that easy. You and I might be familiar with the surroundings but there are a whole lot of dynamics to the incoming person – the culture of South Africa, the game in South Africa, all those they come into play."
