Steve Komphela: Chiefs, SuperSport, And Something About Plastic Chairs

Steve Komphela Was In Fine Form As Kaizer Chiefs Prepare

By Joe Crann - Apr 21, 2017 01:29 PM @YesWeCrann
Steve Komphela is known for his turn of phrase and detailed analogies and he was once again on form as Kaizer Chiefs prepare for the Nedbank Cup quarterfinals.
 
 
The Amakhosi go into Saturday’s clash with SuperSport United on a fine run as they continue their pursuit of the Absa Premiership title. Komphela is happy about their unbeaten spell that has seen them keep their hopes of silverware alive.
 
Komphela seems to have gotten into his groove at Naturena of late, with the 14-game unbeaten run in all competitions can be described the club's best form since his arrival from Maritzburg United. 
 
 
When asked about the confidence that is being built up during the club’s unbeaten run, he replied in true Komphela-esque fashion, saying, “If you’re given a task to build a castle out of plastic chairs, you put one on top of the other and they pile up and go high.
 
“They are not going to drop because they go high. They drop because you become anxious. If you focus on the height of the chairs, you’re going to start shaking.”
 
Meanwhile, despite SuperSport’s dip in league form following a five-game winless streak, Komphela is wary of Stuart Baxter and his side as they battle for a spot in the Nedbank Cup semifinals.
 
He said, “You’ve got to be careful with a team who are not getting results‚ and they know what is expected of them and be wary of how dangerous they can be‚” Komphela cautioned on Thursday.
 
“With regards to Stuart – he’s very experienced. He has shown it in the past. I mean‚ the two matches he played against Sundowns‚ from the first one to the second‚ were not the same. That is a sign of a man who thinks. You learn from your previous experiences. In football, you always learn.
 
"And if he has to think about the previous match he lost‚ and the way SuperSport played on Tuesday night‚ then there’s a possibility he might have a different way of seeing the match he’s going to bring on Saturday.
 
“Which obviously says to you‚ don’t depend on his past‚ because he’s going to come up with a different way of thinking – so you have to think even further. So you have to respect the quality that SuperSport have and Baxter’s thinking capabilities. There are certain people who thrive on challenges. The more you throw at them‚ the sharper they get. And Stuart is that kind of breed.”
 
Chiefs host SuperSport at FNB Stadium tomorrow evening at 18h00.
