- Steve Komphela is looking forward to his current side’s clash against his former Kaizer Chiefs side on 28 August
- Komphela said there was no room for emotions or sentiments and only results mattered
- The former Kaizer Chiefs coach quit the club in April after suffering three terrible seasons
Steve Komphela is relishing the upcoming match between his current and former sides. Bloemfontein Celtic will face Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on 28 August in what promises to be a thrilling PSL encounter.
Komphela said there was no room for emotions or sentiments and it was to be expected that at the top flight emotions did not form part of the game.
Komphela said he was taking one match at a time and assessing each opponent individually to identify their strengths and weaknesses.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Komphela quit his role at Kaizer Chiefs in April after the now infamous pitch invasion at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
During his three years at Kaizer Chiefs Komphela failed to win a single piece of silverware, the longest dry spell in the club’s history.
Sport24.com reported that Komphela has seemingly put the difficulties of the past three years behind him and has guided Bloemfontein Celtic to a near dream start to the PSL season.
The club won its encounter with Orlando Pirates over the weekend to cement its spot at the top of the PSL log. Bloemfontein are currently in second on the log trailing Bidvest Wits on goals scored but with a game in hand.
SowetanLive.co.za reported that Bloemfontein has not conceded a goal in the 2018/19 season and are performing well above their weight despite facing various challenges.
These challenges include uncertainty about the club’s future ownership and financial issues which caused players to receive their salaries late.
Komphela said the challenges had galvanised the players and brought a sense of unity to everyone at the club.
Kaizer Chiefs have continued their downward spiral and are currently in 12th place on the log, the Glamour Boys have failed to win a single match in their first four encounters of the season and are six points behind Bloemfontein.
