Komphela furious at 'scrappy' Chiefs

Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela was left disappointed with the way his players imposed themselves in their 2-2 draw against Free State Stars.

Amakhosi came back from behind on two occasions, in the first-half and a late equaliser from captain Siphiwe Tshabalala, to earn the former Premiership champions a point at Goble Park on Wednesday night.

"It's just unfair for the people who support this team," Komphela told SuperSport.

"I'm not the kind of coach that would complain,but come on."

"We need to learn, we've got to learn. It gets to a point were you say 'wait a minute, we've got to learn'."

Komphela's team was forced to play long and aerial balls, as Ea Lla Koto continued their tight man marking, and the coach believes his team were too easily forced into their shell.

"Stick to your guns, tell yourself that I'm a big team, I'm no small boy, I will stand here and impose myself," the former Free State Stars coach continued.

"People who don't impose are people who don't have the confidence and the tools to, we have the tools. Play your own way and every time you do that, opportunities are there.

"But the minute you start playing long balls without confidence, it becomes scrappy and that's football from Mars, we don't play football from Mars, we play football that is played on the grass.

"That's why its luscious, it's green, so that you can play that thing on the ground, I go mad when our team does things that we don't understand. Easy match to win, yet another draw, but we'll go back and work on it."
