Cape Town - Steve
Komphela says he takes a philosophical view of his future with Kaizer
Chiefs after a recent defeat to Orlando Pirates saw his side's title
chances take a knock.
Komphela has been with Chiefs for nearly three seasons during which
time the Glamour Boys have failed to win a trophy. They were still alive
in the Premiership title race, however, a 3-1 defeat to the Sea Robbers
last Saturday saw them drop to fifth.
With seven games to go and a eight point deficit to make up on league
leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, it appears the chances of fighting for the
coveted PSL trophy are slim to none.
The 50 year old's contract expires in June and it is unclear at this
stage what the future holds for Chiefs' experienced mentor. Nonetheless,
the former Bafana Bafana star takes the view that he can't worry about
things outside of his control.
He said: "Football is about pressure, always pressure, and you don't
want to do your job and perform your duties with some question marks and
as I always said, I hate fielding this question but I will just try to
respond again in a manner that's proper.
"The question is so difficult, I don't want to sound arrogant, you can imagine if the question, does it bother you?
"All that I can say is, we have to be very realistic as professionals
and you should never be in denial in any circumstances of scenario."
Chiefs next host second-tier side Stellenbosch United in the Nedbank Cup at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.
Kick off is at 20:15.
