Komphela was not pleased with his side's defensive display despite Amakhosi's Macufe Cup triumph

Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela has lamented the fact that his side continues to concede goals from set-pieces.

Amakhosi were recently crowned Macufe Cup champions for the sixth time in their history following their 4-2 victory over Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday.

But while Komphela would have been satisfied with the confidence boosting victory, he was clearly not pleased by his side’s defensive efforts.

The 50-year-old stated that the Glamour Boys need to stop conceding from dead ball situations after Victor Letsoalo was allowed to score from a dead-ball situation in the first half.

"That's one thing we need to be working on. We can't be conceding like that," Komphela told SABC TV during his post-match interview.

"Even when we played Baroka we conceded from a set-play. We have to get that right," Komphela lamented.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs coach used the friendly as an ideal opportunity to give some of his younger players a much needed run out, and he was evidently pleased with the contribution of 17-year-old Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, who made an appearance on Sunday afternoon.

"I'm happy for guys like Ngcobo - the crowd helped him. He's no longer the young kid we knew yesterday, but he's a bit wiser today," Komphela added.
