Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has lauded the club’s supporters for remaining faithful to the team even after losing some of their crucial matches.

Chiefs two of the club’s important fixtures thus far, losing out in the MTN8 final to Ajax Cape Town and more recently, the Telkom Knockout final to Sundowns.

Following the Downs loss, Amakhosi went to play Bidvest Wits at the Cape Town stadium, as their alternative home fixture and won the encounter 2-1.

“Chiefs fans thrive confidence. They will fully support their team even after losing in the Telkom Knockout final, as they came in number to the Cape Town Stadium. We must just give them a win and the experience of watching Chiefs play.”

“We beat Bidvest Wits in our first home away from home fixture in the Cape of Love & Peace,” Komphela told the clubs website.

The Glamour boys take on Platinum Stars at the same venue on Sunday, and the Chiefs mentor is hoping for another positive result at the Stadium.

“It is the second of a trio of Cape of Love & Peace matches played at Amakhosi’s alternative home, the Cape Town Stadium.”

“We hope to continue with our good results in the Cape against Dikwena. We are looking forward to a great match and of course a win,” he continued.

“We want our supporters to enjoy watching Chiefs. Football is not only a sport. At Amakhosi, we are looking as well as the greater influence to the society. We want to affect lives in a broader sense of emotions and perspectives.”
