Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly considering the future of Steve Komphela following a record of just one win in his last 14 official matches in charge.

In addition, the club have lost four of their last six matches in the league and cup, which includes recent defeats to Bidvest Wits and Cape Town City.

While Chiefs recently backed Komphela in the media, it's thought that the continuing streak of poor results has led to discussions taking place at Naturena over the coach's future.

Glamour Boys boss Kaizer Motaung recently admitted his feelings on the club's lacklustre form, saying: "I understand where they (the fans) are coming from, but I probably feel worse than them."

Soccer Laduma report that Chiefs have discussed potential replacements for Komphela as they plan for the possibility of no improvement in the quality of performances and results.

The publication says that talks are to be organised with the 49-year-old with a view to discussing the way forward for the club as a whole.

Komphela, who has been at Chiefs since the start of the 2015/16 campaign after taking over from Stuart Baxter, has yet to win a trophy at Naturena.

He did come close by reaching two cup finals last season, but Chiefs lost both encounters. Nonetheless, Amakhosi's coach could face a vote of no confidence if things don't improve in the near future.

The Glamour Boys have lost their opening two games of 2016/17 with a 2-1 Premiership defeat to Wits, followed by a 1-0 loss to Cape Town City in the MTN8 quarter-finals.
