Kaizer Chiefs fans once again bayed for coach Steve Komphela’s blood following a dull 0-0 draw against Bloemfontein Celtic at FNB Stadium on Wednesday night.

The draw against Siwelele meant that Chiefs have now gone eight games without claiming a victory.

Chiefs fans, who are used to winning, have not taken kindly to this long winless streak, and on Wednesday they made their voices heard by chanting ‘Steve must go’.

The beleaguered coach was escorted by the police as he left the stadium.

Komphela once again blamed poor finishing for his team’s failure to win the Celtic match even though stats showed that Siwelele had more clear cut chances than Amakhosi.

“Even though we should compliment Celtic, who had a couple of chances through Nyatama, we had a chance for Michelle Katsvairo in the first half, when the goalkeeper was out of the area. Just a bit of calmness, composure, take that,” said Komphela after the game.

“There was another brilliant header Tower touched, but Tignyemb had to pull a save, and the rest were few and far between chances. We’ll have to move on again and look at the next one.”

Chiefs’ next game is against the in-form Polokwane City at FNB Stadium on Sunday.
