Steve Komphela hints at Kaizer Chiefs departure

Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela has hinted that he won’t be Amakhosi coach next season when his contract expires in June.

“Personally, I must thank everyone who has put pressure on me,” Komphela told SuperSport TV after Chiefs’ 1-0 win against Platinum Stars at FNB Stadium on Sunday.

“I couldn’t have been the coal that I am. I couldn’t have been the diamond that I am. I would have stayed a simple muddy house. It is through pressure that you get better.

“But you have to accept the pressure because at the back of not accepting pressure you are denying ‘God what he wants you to do. He is preparing for another environment – it could be outside football, it could be anywhere else. So don’t say no to challenges, rather seek more wisdom.

“I have grown immensely. I am not the same coach that came to Chiefs, as I go out I must thank everybody.”
