Komphela gets vote of confidence

Johannesburg - Head coach Steve Komphela has been given a vote of confidence by Kaizer Chiefs chairperson Kaizer Motaung following the club's uncertain start to the season.

Chiefs have lost their opening two matches and were unconvincing in both performances against Bidvest Wits and Cape Town City in the Premiership and MTN8 competition respectively.

With the 2016/17 campaign still in its early stages, some sections of supporters have already started to question whether Komphela is the right man to lead Amakhosi.

The Glamour Boys have made extensive changes to the squad and so far it appears the side are yet to really gel as a unit.

Komphela has been under pressure since taking over from Stuart Baxter and their fifth place finish in 2015/16 was widely seen as a below-par return.

Nonetheless, Motaung has called for calm and has reassured the Chiefs coach that he has the full confidence of the club to turn things around.

He told the City Press: "I don't blame the supporters for feeling the way they do. I understand where they are coming from, but I probably feel worse than them. You can't start pressing panic buttons after just two or even four matches.

"There is no need for a knee-jerk reaction. People must understand that we made some wholesale changes to the squad and there are players who still have not been given a chance. We can't let two games derail our plans."
