Komphela: We have to dust ourselves off

Cape Town - Following Kaizer Chiefs' defeat in the Telkom Knockout final, Steve Komphela believes that Mamelodi Sundowns were more clinical in front of goal.

The Brazilians put three goals pass Brilliant Khuzwayo courtesy of Leonardo Castro, Thabo Nthethe and Hlompho Kekana to seal things at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

According to KickOff, Komphela says that his side could have easily netted five goals and claim bragging rights at the end of 90-minutes.

“With the number of chances we had, missing two penalties as well, the difference between the two teams was being clinical when a chance prevailed itself,” the Chiefs mentor said.

“I strongly believe the match could have ended 5-3 in our favour. I’m not sure how Camaldine scored that last one.

“It was one of those days. It's painful but we have to dust ourselves off.”
