Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has admitted that his record of not winning any silverware isn't good enough, but he wants to rectify the situation.

The 49-year-old has now won no trophies in his two seasons in charge although the club have reportedly backed him to keep his job in 2017/18.

Komphela, who led Chiefs to a fourth place finish in the Premiership 10 points behind champions Bidvest Wits, told the SowetanLIVE website, "I must be careful. In response to the last part of your question - I fire myself.

"Because the question says‚ do you think you deserve to stay on?

"Any response to that question has got direct implications and reference. So one has to be very smart in their response.

"I don't think at any stage when you're at Chiefs, when you earn second, it's good enough - no.

"And I cannot bring any excuses. I just have to accept the status quo and try to rectify. Listen‚ we can do better than this - our people deserve better. But again‚ it comes across as an excuse.

"In football you can't explain‚ because it comes across as an excuse."
