Steve Komphela’s future is once again under scrutiny as the Glamour Boys continue to struggle for form in the Absa Premiership, and his next result could play a big role.
The Amakhosi have won just three of their last 14 games stretching back to the 2016/17 campaign, and with the team averaging just one goal per game, things aren’t looking good for the 2014/15 league champions.
Chiefs take on Baroka FC this weekend as the fourth take on second in the league table, and there have been suggestions that if the club doesn’t get a positive result then there could be a change of the guard at Naturena.
As reported in the latest issue of Soccer Laduma, Kaizer Motaung is believed to have earmarked Muhsin Ertugral as a potential replacement as he looks to see more youngsters making the move from the youth ranks into the senior setup, with the Turk having a history with regards to that side of things.
Chiefs have always publically backed Komphela despite some tough periods over the last two seasons, although given their complete lack of trophies since his arrival, it appears their patience could be running thin.
With the international break approaching, the gap between the Baroka game and the clash with Mamelodi Sundowns – over two weeks – would give Chiefs the chance to potentially make a move for a replacement.
