Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has used the example of Barcelona superstar Neymar to highlight why showboating must come with an end product or it is counterproductive.

The Glamour Boys mentor expressed he was not happy with some unnecessary trickery displayed in Chiefs' 3-0 Nedbank Cup victory over the National First Division's Stellenbosch FC on Saturday.

"You don't do that, football is culture, it's tradition and this is what South Africans enjoy in football," he told reporters.

"You not going to be mediocre, but you still want to give them the skill and flair they want and you do it in manner that is productive.

"When Neymar is in the corner, gets the ball and flips it, the world says 'what a skill, what a great player'. When we do it in South Africa in a manner that is productive the same must go and if not, we as coaches have to reprimand the player."

Amakhosi travel to the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday for a Premiership fixture against Baroka FC.

Kick off is at 20:15.
